OCDS for the Agreement on Government Procurement

To promote open, fair and transparent competition in government procurement markets, a number of World Trade Organization (WTO) members negotiated the Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA).

This website provides guidance on how to publish Open Contracting Data Standard data in a way that is consistent with the rules established in the text of the Agreement (PDF). It quotes parts of the GPA, adding annotations on how to publish the information using OCDS.
