TEDective Parser



This section is work-in-progress. Please stay tuned!


The TEDective Parser is the component that transforms the TED XML files that can be downloaded from Tender European Daily (opens in a new tab) (TED) into the Open Contracting Data Standard (opens in a new tab) (OCDS).


There are a lot of resources that are helpful in using, developing and extending the parser. The most important ones are:

  1. The OCDS Schema reference (opens in a new tab) which describes in detail what an OCDS release is and what it should look like.
  2. The OCDS European Union Profile (opens in a new tab) which maps fields in TED notices to fields in an OCDS release (Github (opens in a new tab). Internal Tooling (opens in a new tab)).
  3. The OJS' Standard form for public procurement site (opens in a new tab) lists all the forms used in any given TED notice.
