This extension adds a field to explicitly indicate the date and time when the tender was published. This field can be different from tender/tenderPeriod/startDate and date fields.


Having this information in a easy way to access it can have many benefits, for instance, to be able to compute some indicators that will say how many days a potential bidder has to prepare an offer.

To satisfy such use cases, the tender/datePublished field should be used.


  "tender": {
    "datePublished": "2019-07-23T1:27:10.673000-06:00"
