F20: Modification notice

Quick links: PDF form | sample XML

F20 is about modifications to the contract or concession.

Similar to F14, the European Commission in its eForms consultation proposes to republish notices – adding a short section to summarize and justify the modification – instead of using F20 (see discussion).

Release model

Create an OCDS release and:

  1. Add 'awardUpdate' and 'contractUpdate' to tag.

What's new

If you have already implemented all prior forms, this notice adds:

  • VII Modifications to the contract/concession

Unlike F03 and F06, F20 discards /AWARD_CONTRACT/AWARDED_CONTRACT/VALUES (V.2.4 Information on value of the contract/lot/concession), since it will have been disclosed in an F03 or F06, and since F20 maps /MODIFICATIONS_CONTRACT/DESCRIPTION_PROCUREMENT/VALUES (VII.1.6 Information on value of the contract/lot/concession) to the same OCDS fields.

The wording of some mappings is changed, without consequence:

  • /PROCEDURE/NOTICE_NUMBER_OJ (Notice number in the OJ S) always refers to a contract award notice on F20, but can refer to a prior information notice or periodic indicative notice (PIN) on other forms. Other forms therefore describe what to do if it is a PIN.

  • /AWARD_CONTRACT/CONTRACT_NO (Contract No) is mandatory on F20, but optional on other forms. Other forms therefore describe what to do if it isn't set.

Other notes

The PDF form has radio buttons for the legal basis, which correspond to a single unlabeled XML element (/LEGAL_BASIS).
