TIMS - Tender Information Management Service Code Legend
This coding structure is designed to provide an analysis of the different types of published tenders.

Until an agreed standard for codifying tenders is developed this structure is to provide a framework for the analysis of tender information.

The OIC and its members do not accept any responsibility for the accuracy of the codes and each subscriber 
should check the detailed tenders themselves and not rely on the details provided on the summary indices.
Any suggestions on new codes or tender revision codes will be considered by the OIC Tender Coding Work Group.

These codes may be revised as different tenders are published.
