OCDS Api Specification Community Discussion

Organisation: Open Contracting helpdesk. Location: Webex

As part of our ongoing commitment to improving the Open Contracting Data Standard, we are hosting an online community discussion around api specification.


  • To share learning on existing projects to make OCDS data available via APIs. Presentations may address:
    • The API that has been created
    • Which user needs were the priority?
    • What design decisions have been made?
    • What are the key learning points from the process?
    • Could OCDS do anything to help improve API design and development?
  • To explore the potential and scope for increased guidance in OCDS 1.1 around APIs for data discovery, harvesting or querying.
  • To identify if there should be ongoing community work on APIs.

The agenda can be found here:

We’ve created a document outlining our current thinking which will form the basis of our community call available here:
