Subject: [public-ocds] Open Contracting Data Standard - Draft Data Model
To: public-ocds at webfoundation.org


This is the first release of the Open Contracting Data Standard for broad
consultation. In this release we would like to present our draft Data Model
for Public Procurement. It presents a high-level overview of the structure
of the Data Standard. This version has been designed for public procurement

The purpose of this consultation is to obtain feedback from the Open
Contracting community on this draft Data Model before creating specific
field names, reference lists, and file formats.

You can find links to the Data Model document here:

You can share your comments in two ways:


   inline comments on the document; and

   the OCDS mailing list - if you have more general comments that don't fit
   well as inline comments,, then please do join our mailing list
   and start a discussion with your thoughts.

During the consultation process the document will be continually updated as
comments are received until July 15, 2014.

Throughout this document there are specific questions for consultation
included, but you are not limited to responding to these questions, we
welcome all input you can offer.
The Open Contracting Data Standard is a core product of the Open
Contracting Partnership (OCP) <http://www.open-contracting.org/>. Version
1.0 of the standard is being developed for the OCP by the World Wide Web
Foundation <http://www.webfoundation.org/>, through a project supported by
The Omidyar Network <http://www.omidyar.com/> and the World Bank
<http://www.worldbank.org/> ».
