Title: Role reification on Award Decision Assignation


We have a situation with two roles where we try to decide what are the things participating in that specific situation.

Try to find a solution for anytime we have a situation with Roles.


Assignation changed to Signing.

It was mentioned that it is signed by the Organisation in its Role of Buyer.

We replicate the same organisation according to the Role. Against the principle of deduplication. Organisation has one unique identity, only the situation where it has a specific Role changed.

Two situations at the same time: the signing of the AwardDecision and the attribution of the Lot.

AwardDecision mentions Lot and Winner.

Winner-selection-status should go to the Lot and not to the AwardDecision.

Example of a Tender Submission:


It has been decided to keep TenderLot and not change it to Tender.
For a TenderSubmission to make sense we need one Tenderer and at least one TenderLot or more.
It’s the Organisation that is in the Situation.
We discussed two options of roles and situations.

Choice 1:


Choice 2:


TenderLot is the offer for the specific Lot. It’s a role, like the role of being submitted by a tender.

We can have more Organisations that can participate/jointly submit in a Tender.

It’s the Tender that has the rank and not the Winner/Tenderer.

The Tender is not a participant, the Organisation is. The Organisation does something according to a Role.

Discussed CPSV-AP specification v2.2.1

The Buyer Role is only one, it doesn’t change. Only the situation changes. Checking Role in Time diagram.

Discussing the design pattern in SPAR ontology: Publishing Roles Ontology.


Use the participation pattern from SPAR.
Revise the cardinalities and look at an example with real data.
