A growing community of data publishers and users are working with the Open Contracting Data Standard.
Through the standard discussion mailing list you can connect with a growing community of users.
The Data Support Team also organize regular online and face-to-face training and co-working sessions. These are announced through the mailing list and on the blog.
The data standard is developed through an open and collaborative process. In order to adapt to emerging publisher and user needs, it supports the creation of extensions. Widely required features can be added to the standard through its ongoing upgrade process.
You can find the latest discussions on developments of the standard on the GitHub issue tracker. You can also share your own suggestions for developments to the standard here.
Announcements about proposed updates to the specification, and periods for comment, will be made to the mailing list.
