OCDS Data Review Tool

By Open Contracting Partnership

The OCDS Data Review Tool will check that machine-readable OCDS files comply with the schema, and will convert between JSON and spreadsheet serializations of the data.

The tool also presents simple summary data, enabling additional checks on the structural correctness and completeness of a data file.

By using the conversion features of the tool, you can turn JSON data into a spreadsheet for analysis using desktop software, and you can convert an appropriately structured spreadsheet or CSV file into JSON for use by developers.

The OCDS Data Review Tool is based on a platform called CoVE: Convert, Validate and Explore.
