A few points from the presentation of Sara Piller, Deputy Head of Unit, Economic Analysis and e-Procurement, DG Internal Market and Services, European Commission:

Since e-Procurement became mandatory, Portugal reports savings reaching 6-12% of the total expenditure. Austria reported up to 18 % savings of the total spend. So why is e-Procurement not developing at a faster pace? The technology is there. The issue is overcoming inertia, fears and manage change. Current progress is slow – we need the savings so we must give a push to e-Procurement implementation. Governments shodul simply make e-Procurement the norm.
