Data quality

Summary

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

  • The data contains several additional fields that are yet to be documented so it is not possible to clearly understand the full data set.
  • Release date: all releases share the same date field so it is not possible to tell how up to date the data is.
  • Release tags do not reflect the sections which are provided in each release: although the data contains awards, all releases are tagged ‘tender’, so filtering by tag is not accurate.
  • Organization roles: not all parties referenced by the tender.procuringEntity field have ‘procuringEntity’ declared as a role so the data does not give a complete picture of organization roles.
  • Many time period objects have a duration that is inconsistent with its start and end dates.
  • Tender value currency: the majority of tender values do not have a currency set, so it is not possible to combine tender values from different contracting processes.

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.
