Welcome to the Information Pages of the e-PRIOR Supplier Portal

DIGIT is developing under the ISA (Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations) programme a number of e-Procurement solutions for the European Commission, its Executive Agencies, and their Suppliers. Currently, the proposed solutions concern post-awarding e-Procurement (i.e. processes to be executed after the award of a market procedure and the signature of the resulting framework contracts).

Post-awarding e-Procurement

The following diagram provides a generic representation of the post-awarding e-Procurement process at the European Commission.


The Figure shows the interactions between the Public Procurement Information System piloted by DIGIT and the Information Systems used by the DIGIT Suppliers.

DIGIT e-Procurement Solutions

The solutions developed by DIGIT:

  • are all available to Suppliers as web services requiring machine-to-machine connections through e-PRIOR, DIGIT’s proprietary communication middleware.
  • are, for some of them, also available to Suppliers in the form of application modules hosted on the e-PRIOR Supplier Portal.

e-PRIOR Supplier Portal

The e-PRIOR Supplier Portal is accessible from anywhere through the Web to authorised Suppliers.

It was launched in September 2010 and hosted an e-Request module allowing Suppliers to process all electronic service requests issued by the Commission for the new ESP DESIS II frawework contracts. In February 2011, the e-Request module also started to support requests linked to the ITSS T&M II framework contracts.

On 27 April 2011, a new e-Invoicing module went live on the Portal... This mailbox application allows authorised Suppliers to view, download and print, in a simple and easy-to-use graphical interface, all the invoicing documents (invoices, credit notes and all related attachments) that have been or are being exchanged electronically between their back office and the Commission through the e-PRIOR platform and its web services.

The e-PRIOR Supplier Portal currently provides access to the following modules:

  1. e-Request
  2. e-Invoicing
