Draft of EC’s Golden Book of E-Procurement Good Practices is out now!

golden book Draft of ECs Golden Book of E Procurement Good Practices is out now!We’re so proud of you Europeans for being such good citizens. You’ve actually listened to the European Commission’s request to contribute to the Golden Book of e-Procurement Good Practices. So thanks for that. The period of consultation ended on 11 October of 2012 and DG MARKT of the European Commission has recently published a draft version of the Golden Book. It consists of a set of 24 good practices which were derived from analysis of the info that you shared with them.

Non-legislative measures

Recent legislative proposals alone are not a sufficient condition for the successful implementation of e-Procurement in the European Union. A number of non-legislative flanking measures are needed in order to support the Member States in their transition to full e-Procurement in a single market. Any such flanking measures or other future intervention by the Commission should be enhanced by lessons learned from the ‘field’ so it can be relevant and overcome current barriers efficiently and effectively.

Making good practices available

E-Procurement good practices are present all over Europe, but are difficult to identify. The e-Procurement Golden Book aims at making them available in a single point of access, helping contracting authorities and economic operators to successfully practice e-Procurement. An advanced draft version is now available online. If you want to get involved in this project then you should really browse eProcGoldenBook blog or follow them on Twitter.
