Entry for Procurement / Mexico


In the context of the GODI public dialogue phase, and its objective to discuss the GODI preliminary results in an open dialogue, on May 25th, 2017, Ania Calderón - Executive Director of the Open Data Charter, Oscar Montiel - International Community Coordinator of Open Knowledge International, Sergio Araiza - SocialTIC y Escuela de Datos and Enrique Zapata - General Director of Open Data in Mexico, gathered in a joint Hang Out to:

• Discuss the preliminary results for Mexico,
• Analyze the pertinence of these preliminary reviews and the existence of requested datasets in open formats, and
• Agree on submitting joint comments to be taken into account

After this exercise this group would like to kindly request the reviewers to take into account the following clarifications to the ‘Procurement’ in its ‘open license’ dimension, based on the following comments:

  1. The Ministry of Public Administration publishes, in datos.gob.mx, the historical versions of all contracts since 2013, under the name ‘Procedimientos de contratación year
  2. For 2017, this same dataset can be found with a daily update in ‘Procedimientos de contratación 2017’ (https://datos.gob.mx/busca/dataset/procedimientos-de-contratacion-2017/resource/8bceeb71-1c03-4418-8bb5-505c83cbcf59)
  3. The metadata for the update period can be found in datos.gob.mx at the level of data resource. In this case ‘R/P1D’ refers to the Period of 1 Day updates.
  4. This update reflects, as open data, the exact same information that users can find in the Mexican Government Procurement Management System CompraNet.

We thank the reviewers for their time and willingness to take into account the work done jointly by civil society and government to perfect the GODI and increase its value for the open data community.


Hi @tlacoyodefrijol it seems that this post was not taken into account in the final score for Mexico. Is there a reason behind this. As we discussed, the data was there from the start.
