# Common operations¶

To avoid repetition in the guidance, we refer and link to the following common operations.

## Create a release¶

1. Set id to the release ID.

2. Set initiationType to 'tender'.

3. Set ocid as described below.

The notice's ocid will either be a new ocid, or the same ocid as the previous publication concerning this procedure. The notice's ocid will be a new ocid if one of the following is true:

• The notice is the first publication concerning the procedure.

• The notice is a contract award notice for an award within a framework agreement or dynamic purchasing system.

If none is true, then set the notice's ocid to be the same as the previous publication's ocid. Otherwise, set the notice's ocid by prepending your OCID prefix to a unique identifier of your choice (e.g. a version 4 UUID or a suitable system-internal identifier).

If the notice is a contract award notice for an award within a framework agreement or dynamic purchasing system, you must also add a RelatedProcess object to the relatedProcesses array, set its .id to '1', add 'framework' to its .relationship array, set its .scheme to 'ocid', and set its .identifier to the ocid of the procedure that set up the framework agreement or dynamic purchasing system.
