Contexte

In OCDS, the signatories to the contract are not explicitly declared in the contracts section. Instead, the signatories are implicitly assumed to be the buyer (publicAuthority in the PPP extension) and the suppliers in the award associated to the contract (preferredBidders in the PPP extension).

In some types of contracting processes, there can be additional signatories to the contract, or the signatories to the contract can differ from those specified in buyer (publicAuthority) and suppliers (preferredBidders).

Usage

This extension adds a signatories field to the contracts section. The signatories property is an array of OrganizationReference's.

Use this extension only if the signatories to a contract differ from its related award's suppliers and the contracting process' buyer. If that is the case, list all signatories to the contract, including the buyer and suppliers.

Exemple

The following JSON snippet models a contracting process where there is an additional signatory to the contract beyond those defined in the buyer and awards.suppliers fields.

{
  "buyer": {
    "name": "Ministry of Communications",
    "id": "GB-GOV-12345678"
  },
  "awards": [
    {
      "id": "1",
      "suppliers": [
        {
          "name": "Example Consortium",
          "id": "GB-COH-00000000"
        }
      ]
    }
  ],
  "contracts": [
    {
      "id": "1",
      "awardID": "1",
      "signatories": [
        {
          "name": "Ministry of Communications",
          "id": "GB-GOV-12345678"
        },
        {
          "name": "Example Consortium",
          "id": "GB-COH-00000000"
        },
        {
          "name": "Telecommunications UK",
          "id": "GB-GOV-99999999"
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
}

Notes d'utilisation

Each signatory to the contract should have an associated entry in the parties section of OCDS.

This extension follows the approach to modelling organizations introduced in OCDS V1.1.
