EU solidarity with Ukraine
Prozorro+: Ukrainian public procurement platform
On 14 November 2022, the format of notices published in TED will change.
The Publications Office will start publishing eForms notices.
To help adapt your systems, you can find resources, models and schemas in the eForms Software Development Kit on GitHub. Documentation is available on the Ted Developers Documentation site, including eForms FAQs.
We have published version 3.0.0 beta of the eProcurement Ontology. We will present it in an online meeting on 28 June 2022 from 14:00 until 17:00 CET at https://ecconf.webex.com/ecconf/j.php?MTID=mb4c23055d10fa536be6b046b50d1d518.
This meeting will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have on the ontology, propose improvements, and understand how the ontology has evolved.
The release of version 3.0.0 of the ontology is intended to be used in the PPDS (Public Procurement Data Space). We would therefore appreciate you sending any issues you may have to the eProcurement Ontology Github before 15 July 2022 so that we can include any updates necessary for the version 3.0.0 release foreseen for the end of July or for a future release.
Please find below links to the major artefacts of the latest publication (version 3.0.0 beta):

To enable as many users as possible to access our services, please note the following:
HTTP-related service (website and REST API)
Any downloads of daily/monthly XML packages from the website are counted in the HTTP-related service.
There is a restriction on the maximum number of connections:
For the FTP service, once the limit is reached, the server will refuse new connections from the IP/user. Once the connection is released, a new one will be accepted.
TED Notice Viewer API
The TED Notice Viewer API service is also meant to be on demand and not used excessively.
Recommended usage is limited to 50,000 calls to the API per month outside of the peak concurrent user timeframe (before 8.45, after 14.00 CET):
Contact form usage
Sending more than 4 requests through the TED contact form over a 1-day period means that you cannot access the full system for 10 minutes.
The new version of the TED XML schema R2.0.9.S05.E01 was implemented on 25 November 2021 instead of mid-December as planned.
This release includes an update of the Prior information notice for public service contract (form T1): section IV.1 ‘Type of procedure’.
The TED XML schemas are available on the FTP server under:
