Hi Michael, 

do you think it’s feasible for Open Contracting to have a draft/straw man data standard by OKFestival? I work on two projects related to procurement data, and both would benefit heavily from a data standard. So far I’ve not observed much technical work coming out of Open Contracting - but that may also be a matter of comms? Is there a general timeline?

This could take the form of a sprint or workshop possibly around the open contracting data standard draft for a half day or full day. Apparently there might also be space available through the Wikimedia Foundation. I am curious to hear your thoughts and what the Open Spending community might have already planned during and around the OKCon event, and the potential of collaborating around such a side event.
