Documentation

Adds an award criteria array to the lot object, to break down award criteria by price, cost and quality.

In the European Union, this extension's fields correspond to eForms BG-707 (Award Criteria). See OCDS for the European Union for the correspondences to Tenders Electronic Daily (TED).

Directive 2014/24/EU Article 67(5) describes weightings and orders of importance.

Examples

Weight

These award criteria are 50% service quality and 50% price.
