What data is expected?

All tenders and awards of the national/federal government aggregated by office. Do not consider procurement planning or other procurement phases.

The Index draws on work from the Open Contracting Partnership.

findable_steps I performed a google search of publications of Government tenders. The top hit was the Department of National Treasury. The National Treasury website gave links to the actual pyblished data on the Department of Government Printing Works' website. Having downloaded one of the publications, I then got more information about one more source of the data, the South African Government's website. These are the original submitter's notes
