Contract Suppliers

OCDS is designed around a contracting model in which:

  • One or more awards are made naming the selected suppliers;
  • One contract is signed for each award made, referring back to the related award;

For this reason, the core Contract block does not include information on suppliers. These can be located by looking at the related Award using the awardID cross-reference.

However, there are some contracting processes in which a single award to multiple suppliers, results in multiple contracts, each to a single supplier. In these instances, it is important to specify suppliers at the contract level.

The Contract Suppliers extension introduces a contracts.suppliers array for this purpose.

Example

An award is made to a consortium with multiple suppliers. Then, a contract is signed with each of them separately. When this extension is used, you should fill contracts.items and contracts.value with the awarded items and value for each supplier.
