Documentation

The framework for disclosure in PPPs calls for individual risk allocation information.

The risk allocation extension is used to provide structured data on the risk allocations defined in a public private partnership's contract.

Overview

Risk allocations can be represented using an array of Risk objects in the riskAllocation field of the contract section of an OCDS release.

The risk category can be represented using the risk/category field using values from the riskCategory.csv codelist based on the APMG PPP Certification Program. The codelist's Category column indicates the stage or aspect of the contracting process to which the risk category applies.

The party retaining each risk should be represented using the risk/allocation field using values from the riskAllocation.csv codelist.

The description of the risk should be provided as free text using the risk/description field and the mitigation for the risk should be provided as free text using the risk/mitigation field.

Additional free text information on the risk can be provided using the risk/notes field.
