Entry for procurement / gb


#1

UK procurement data in the Open Contracting Data Standard is available on a daily basis (albeit slightly hidden) here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/open-contracting.

Thanks Georg. My submission (http://global.survey.okfn.org/entry/gb/procurement) noted the daily data. The UK only lost points in this category because the current Contracts Finder dataset isn’t available as a bulk download.


#3

Thanks Owen. It seems daily snapshots are downloadable from here: https://data.gov.uk/publisher/crown-commercial-service
Maybe worth clarifying if they don’t qualify.


#4

Yes, that link was in my submission. Unfortunately although the daily data files are called “snapshots” on GOV.UK they are only the data added each day; not true snapshots of the dataset as a whole.


#5

Indeed @georgneu, the daily data doesn’t allow you to get a record of the dataset as a whole. Thanks for clarifying @owenboswarva
