Learning Lab: History of OCDS

By Open Contracting Partnership

This learning lab covers elements that you should know about the open contracting data standard (OCDS) as you start your learning and implementation journey.

It may take a number of hours to work through this lab in full, and you should discuss any questions you have with other colleagues, the OCDS mailing list or the data support team. The most important thing is to make sure that it fits with your preferred learning style.

Remember – whilst you are learning about Open Contracting and OCDS you can also play a key role in improving OCDS. We are always iterating on our resources and documentation – so if you think something could be explained better – or if you want to create resources to capture your own learning – we really encourage you to. 

Estimated time required for completion: 60 – 120 minutes
