Online awarding platform for authorities in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern
In Germany, annual costs of € 19 billion arise in connection with public procurement bureaucracy according to the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi). The report about Information Obligations for SMEs in Baltic Sea Region Countries and Belarus which was carried out within the frame of the project egoprise confirmed that these costs are not only arising in municipalities and cities but also on enterprises’ site, especially regarding:
- Presentation of certifications on reliability
- Presentation of certificates and proofs
Electronic procurement can just in the light of the difficult economic situation and rising public debt show new perspectives. The eGovernment association Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is therefore pleased to introduce its partner “Deutsche eVergabe”. The Hessian IT company with their e-procurement software provides a solution that is specifically tailored to the requirements of the procurement practice. In cooperation with procurement officials and scientists a software has been developed that features an easy-to-use, web-based advertising and procurement portal, which optimizes the tender process for both sides, the tenderers and the administrations.
With the new online service municipalities and cities will not only succeed in recovering their financial freedom but also to help manage administrative processes more efficient, transparent and standardized. With the award-safe which is free for awarding bodies announcements can be published and tender documents can be made available online. Thanks to plausibility checks and continuous logging of the allocation process legal compliance on the part of contracting authorities can be further guaranteed.
Enterprises can also register free of charge and will then be automatically informed about new tenders suiting their company profile. When participating in an invitation to tender a software wizard ensures that shape and limit errors are avoided. Furthermore, when using the so-called project safe, company information and documents (e.g. certifications on reliability and other proofs) must be uploaded once and can be stored for further offers. The method therefore eases up the procedure for companies, too.
Update: The awarding platform is also integrated into the online business platform www.service.m-v.de
