The future towards cross-border public eProcurement

T 008, 28/09/2010 (14:00-15:30)

Pan-European public procurement online, or PEPPOL, is a European Commission pilot project on electronic procurement.

Many EU countries use eProcurement to make bidding for public sector contracts simpler and more efficient. However, such solutions are often implemented at national level only, with limited cross-border coordination. PEPPOL aims to make electronic communication between companies and government bodies possible for all procurement processes throughout the EU. This will enable the connection of existing national systems, which is essential to allow businesses, especially SMEs, to bid for any public sector contract from anywhere in the EU. It is also an important step towards achieving the Single European Market. Having recently successfully completed its first year of activities, PEPPOL will present its initial results during this session.

Session draft agenda:

  • 20 min: PEPPOL - The future of eProcurement - It's time to connect! (Speaker: Andre Hoddevik)
  • 20 min: PEPPOL implementation guidelines for ICT industry and service providers. (Speaker: Jens Jakob Andersen)
  • 50 min: Discussion and Q&As with PEPPOL experts
