Italy: OnData

In October 2020, the Italian civil society organization onData launched AppaltiPOP, a platform for citizens and stakeholders to monitor public procurement processes. The project makes public sector data more accessible and increases transparency in the public procurement sector in Italy.

onData sources the data for AppaltiPOP from public administrations, often via ANAC. Italian public administrations are obliged by a 2012 law to release all annual data on public procurement as XML files to the anti-corruption authority by January 31st of the subsequent year. AppaltiPOP’s team then helps to identify corruption risks, or red flags, and aims to send this data back to ANAC to support their investigations.

Data quality

Summary

The dataset has quality issues to take into account, notably:

  • The tender/contractPeriod/endDate date field is incorrectly formatted.
  • The publisher is incorrectly declared in the package metadata, using the commune name instead of onData
  • The same OCID is used for multiple contracting processes
  • Release tags do not reflect the sections which are provided in each release. For example, releases with the “award” tag, also contain contract and implementation information
  • For all contracts, the award referenced in the awardID field does not match the award ID.
  • The data includes organization references for buyers and procuring entities without an associated entry in the parties array.
  • Organizations with multiple roles are repeated in the parties section with different identifiers.

Access data

This OCDS dataset is available for download in JSON, Excel or CSV format. You can download the data for contracting processes in a specific year or for all time.

JSON

Each contracting process is represented as one line of JSON text in the .jsonl file.

The .jsonl file is compressed using Gzip. Windows users need 7-Zip, WinRAR or WinZip to decompress the .gz file.

Excel

Each contracting process is represented as one row in the main sheet. Other sheets link to it via the _link_main column.

Excel files can have at most 1,048,576 rows. If a year is missing, it had too many rows.

CSV

Each contracting process is represented as one row in the main.csv file. Other files link to it via the _link_main column.

The .csv files are archived using tar and compressed using Gzip. Windows users need 7-Zip, WinRAR or WinZip to decompress the .tar.gz file.
