Nigeria: Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP)

The Bureau of Public Procurement tracks information in the Nigeria Open Contracting Portal (NOCOPO).

The NOCOPO portal, conceived by the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP) in line with Section 5(r) of the Public Procurement Act, 2007, was co-created with Civil Society Organisations in fulfillment of Commitment 2 of the Nigeria National Action Plan of the Open Government Partnership. The Public Procurement Act applies to all procurement of goods, works and services carried out by the Federal Government of Nigeria and all procurement entities, excluding the procurement of special goods; works and services involving national defense or national security unless the President’s express approval has been first sought and obtained.

Data quality

Summary

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

  • There are invalid dates in tender, award and contract sections so automated processing of dates may not be possible.
  • There are no release/date fields before 2021-05-01 and the majority are on the same day (2021-05-03), so they may reflect internal data updates rather than the date the information was first released or published.
  • The data contains blank/empty fields
  • There are invalid codes in the mainProcurementCategory field
  • The license and publication policy URLs given in the package data point to empty web pages so there is a lack of clear information about the data source, updates and re-use.

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.
