This is the date of signature of the contractual document. If this date has been cited by the original publishing source in a summary document the repository uses that date but it should be noted that there are occasionally differences between such a date and the actual signature date inside the contract. Also, the signature date is different to the Effective Date, the point at which many contractual obligations and benefits begin. All evaluation of how a project has been implemented, and financial flows around it, need to establish the Effective Date, which can usually be constructed from a reading of the text of the contract.
