Working Group meeting

Date: 09/11/2021
Participants: Cecile Guasch, Giorgia Lodi, Natalie Muric, Giovanni Paolo Sellitto
Model editor: Eugen Costezki
Note editor: Andreea Pasăre

Agenda:

  • Discuss comments on attributes with missing definitions.

  • Go through the errors discovered by the constraints checker

    • Missing target roles

    • Missing multiplicity

  • Present roles as adjunct instances

  • What shall be used as context?

    • Context / Situation / Frame / Event / Process / Organisation

    • Most likely the context nature differ by “groups of roles”

    • Also the context possibly differs by role participation (e.g. Buyer always participates) or role assignation (e.g. information provider is not participating but is assigned to offer information at some point in the future)

    • Also the context differs by the role types, for example organisational roles e.g. group leader, are different from participation roles.

  • Shall we capture the situation frames or not?

    • Set of participants vs situation of a single agent

    • Distinction between actual(factual & time bound) & future(obligation, possibility, necessity)?

    • Frame of the event vs event outcome

      • E.g. Award Decision vs Awarding Action

    • Example: Awarding

      • the party that is performing the awarding: “the awarder” / “buyer”

      • the party that is awarded: “the awardee” / “winner”

      • the lot being awarded: “the object”

    • Contract signing

      • the signee on the side of the buyer: “…​” / buyer

      • the signee on the side of the winner: “…​” / winner

      • the contract being signed: “the object”

(Future agenda)

  • Discuss the principles on specifying the cardinality constraints (in the model and in AP) == Discussion

Tender example instantiation:

How do we use a CV of roles?
We don’t need one. We should have them as classes or subclasses.

Award example role model:

Information Provider Role and Subrole example:

Decisions:

  • Change data type from epo:Indicator to epo:Numeric for epo:SubcontractorsProposedAboveObligation
    epo:MinimumSubcontractorsProposedObligation

  • epo:TotalValueSubcontracted - should be changed to epo:EstimatedTotalSubcontracts

  • epo:MinimumShareSubjectMatter - change this to epo:SubcontractShareSubjectMatter and move it to statistical information.

  • epo:ParticipationPayment - should change type from epo:Numeric to epo:Text

Questions:

  • Should we move Reg2015 and BDTI AP into different eapx files?

    • For the moment we should keep them like they are until we decide to publish something.
