Documentation

Document objects are used to describe and link to documents. This extension adds fields to document objects to:

  • Indicate the page numbers at which relevant information can be found within a large document
  • Describe any special arrangements needed to access the document
  • Name the author of the document (not to be confused with its publisher)

Use cases include:

  • Accessing the document and locating the information within it
  • Checking whether authors are involved in other ways in the contracting process, e.g. as bidders
  • Measuring the accessibility of documents

Example

{
  "tender": {
    "documents": [
      {
        "id": "1",
        "documentType": "equityTransferCaps",
        "title": "Equity transfer cap terms",
        "description": "No equity transfer is permitted until construction is completed. See document for more details.",
        "url": "http://example.com/ppp_unit/documents/contracts/4g_network_signed_contract.pdf",
        "pageStart": "334",
        "pageEnd": "336",
        "accessDetails": "You must register for document access via the following url: http://example.com/ppp_unit/registration/",
        "author": "Contract department, PPP unit"
      }
