Updating vendor data in the OASIS Discovery tool

Ended on 09/16/2016
Winning bid (Dan Siddoway): $599.00


CSV and Python


The OASIS program provides two multiple-award IDIQ contracts that can be used to procure professional services from vendors. Small business vendors are included in OASIS SB and other-than-small vendors are included in OASIS itself.

To make it easier for contracting officers to find information about those vendors and the services that they provide, 18F worked with OASIS to create a discovery tool. The source of the tool—built using the Django framework—is available on GitHub.

What we are asking

The data for the tool is loaded through a series of Django management commands. This micro-purchase aims to streamline that process. First, we’d like to update the CSVs of vendors currently in the repository, based on the current data on the OASIS site. Then, we’d like to create a single command to run the various steps used to create the data. Finally, we’d like to create a fixture of the resulting data, so that it can be quickly loaded into the tool.

Specific acceptance criteria

Update the vendor pool CSVs

  • When a user visits the GitHub repository
  • Then they find the same vendors in the CSVs as on the GSA website

Create a single command to produce a fixture of the latest data

  • Given a fresh environment
  • When an admin runs the command
  • Then the latest data is created following the manual steps in
  • And a Django fixture is created with that data

General acceptance criteria

  • All new functionality will be covered by new unit tests.
  • There will be no decrease in test coverage.
  • Tests run on Circle CI and do not break the build.
  • New features do not degrade accessibility (measured with pa11y/HTML Code Sniffer).
  • A payment URL is specified in your profile so that we can pay the award
