This is a discussion about the submission for procurement / pl.
Hello everyone. this is my first post so welcome everyone.
I would like to correct some information about Polish National Procurment Data Base.
Im collecting this data from 2014 and actually there are different channels and opportunities.
So everyone can access HTML browser via:
http://bzp0.portal.uzp.gov.pl/index.php?ogloszenie=login (database before last law changed)
https://bzp.uzp.gov.pl/adm/default.aspx (database after last law changed)
Currently they are making some changes in the annoucment form so new annoucments are published here: https://bzp.uzp.gov.pl/In/Search.aspx
Data are updated every 15 minutes (on FTP).
- the problem with EVERYTHING is that from 04.05.2017 they changed announcement form and they stop to publish XML announcement file. As i talked with UZP authorities, they sad that currently this is not their main point to publish data in XML format, because they are working on new forms for every announcement. I will escalate this situation to current government and will try to convince them to re enable XML files.
** - XML files are machine readable but there is not schema <- You have to parse thousands of announcements to have the more less knowledge about the structure. The structure is sometimes broken.
WARNING. In last year we had another law change. In 2016 some XML of the same announcement type changed.
Be aware of it if You would like to download and use data.
There is no info about the licence, but this are public data.
In Poland we have law that public data are open to everyone, and everyone can download and reuse it.
