OCDS data often refers to other datasets, like company registers, government budgets and infrastructure projects. These datasets contain information that is managed outside the lifecycle of a contracting process.
Open Contracting for Infrastructure Data Standards
The Open Contracting for Infrastructure Data Standards (OC4IDS) describe what information to disclose and how to disclose it, at each stage of an infrastructure project. It connects previously siloed information to better publish and track infrastructure investment and delivery, providing data at the project level, at the contracting summary level, and at contract process detail level.
A joint effort by the Infrastructure Transparency Initiative (CoST) and the Open Contracting Partnership, it builds on best practice in open data and openness of public infrastructure procurement globally.
The Project extension describes how to connect OCDS and OC4IDS datasets.
