Documentation

This extension adds a field to indicate the treaties that the contracting process is covered by.

A treaty, like the Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA), can require a member to indicate that a contracting process is covered by it. The tender.coveredBy field should be used to meet such requirements.

To disclose the laws or regulations that govern the contracting process and that grant legal authority to the procuring entity, use the legalBasis extension instead.

The Revised Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) includes: "each notice of intended procurement shall include … l. an indication that the procurement is covered by this Agreement."

The European Union is a party to the GPA, and as such its Directive 2014/24/EU (Public contracts — setting out clear ground rules) includes: "Part C: Information to be included in contract notices … 29. Indication whether the contract is covered by the GPA."

Example

The tender.coveredBy field is an array of strings, whose values are selected from the coveredBy.csv open codelist.

{
  "tender": {
    "coveredBy": [
      "GPA"
    ]
  }
}
