One of the important data sets in the development field is a complete accounting of all the projects that have been awarded and to whom they’ve been awarded. There are more than 60 agencies active in financing development projects; these are organizations such as the World Bank, the European Union and others. They each have different standards for reporting the contracts that they award, different mediums for disseminating them, and different formats. My goal with this project overall is to pull together these disparate data sources that identify contract awards.

The data aggregation will be focused on 5 different agencies and should be entered into the Devex data schema (attached.) The source data is as follows:

European Union (also known as EuropeAid)
What’s available: Paid XML feed. A sample of the feed is attached (EN_20090115_2009009_META_ORG.zip) as well as a parser written by a member of our internal team in Ruby on Rails (europa_xml.rb).

World Bank
