The 2015 CEF Telecom eProcurement call makes an indicative €1.4 million of funding available for projects allowing for more transparent, streamlined, efficient public spending.
The general context for this call for proposals is defined in Section 2.1 of the 2015 work programme as published on the call page on the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) website.
BACKGROUND AND RATIONALE
The background and rationale for this call for proposals are defined in the Section 188.8.131.52 of the 2015 work programme.
The priority outcomes of this call for proposals are defined in Section 184.108.40.206 of the 2015 work programme. They include the integration of e-Certis services into national e-Tendering solutions to allow economic operators and contracting authorities to:
- Easily access information about certificates and attestations required by public procurement procedures;
- Facilitate the verification of national equivalents of certificates and attestations required by public procurement procedures.
RESULTS EXPECTED FROM THE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
The benefits and expected outcomes of this call for proposals are defined in Section 220.127.116.11 of the 2015 work programme. It aims to increase the use of the e-Certis mapping service by supporting its integration into the eTendering solutions used throughout Europe. Better alignment of information in the eTendering solutions will improve the quality of service provided by the certification and attestation service, and thus facilitate the submission of cross-border offers by economic operators.
The indicative amount to be allocated on the basis of this call for proposals to projects of common interest in the field of trans-European telecommunications for eProcurement is €1.4 million.
