In some cases it is important to provide an overall title and description for a contracting process, distinct from the individual title and description fields contained within tender, award and contract blocks.

This extension provides release.title and release.description fields.

These will often be used to provide a human-readable summary of information that is provided elsewhere in the OCDS document as structured data.

Publishers using these fields should be aware that not all applications will display their contents, and so key information for understanding the nature of the contracting process should generally also be provided using core OCDS fields.
