Portugal: Institute of Public Procurement, Real Estate and Construction (IMPIC)

The Institute of Public Procurement, Real Estate, and Construction (IMPIC) in Portugal tracks information in the Base system which centralizes the information on public contracts awarded in Portugal.

Public procurement rules in Portugal are set out in the Public Procurement Code and Base acts as the official journal of Portugal. The Base system collects information on the formation and performance of public contracts. The information arrives at Base from different sources at different moments in the procurement process as well as contract execution, where procuring entities have direct access to Base

Data quality

Summary

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

  • There are quality issues relating to documents: a number of invalid URLs in tender/documents; and some documents do not have a format specified. Users will not be able to access all tender documentation.
  • Some organization data is incorrect or missing, including: non-unique id values in party/id fields; placeholder identifier/id values (e.g. “0”); organization references without an associated entry in the parties array; and inconsistent roles between organization references and the parties array. Users will not in all cases be able to uniquely identify all organizations in the related contracting processes and their roles.
  • There are a number of blank/empty fields.

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.
