Description / Abstract:

The profiles referenced in this guideline support a process of electronic tendering. It is intended to support transmission of electronic documents for processing by the receiver. The legal requirements that were taken into account are requirements from European legislation, in particular the directives with relation to public procurement. The profiles may also be used for tenders below the thresholds that are defined in the directives. The intended scope for the profiles includes:

• Business to Government (B2G)

• Common business processes for local and pan European tendering

• Mainly for tendering of works, goods and/or services whether these are listed in catalogues or not

The transactions, specified in the profiles are intended to be exchanged between the application systems of contracting authorities, economic operators, publishing bodies and specialized service providers such as tendering portals. This means that it is expected that parties have connected their systems to the internet, and that they have middleware in place to enable them to send and receive the transactions in a secure way, using an agreed syntax.
