In December, Romania will begin an overhaul of existing IT systems involved in public procurement, to increase efficiency. The overhaul will be partly financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
The project by the Agency for the Digital Agenda (AADR) will bring the country’s existing procurement processes in line with European requirements. This will include updating existing IT services and creating new ones, to make it easier to access procurement requests. AADR aims to provide modern, efficient, effective and accessible IT services, it writes in an announcement.
Earlier this year, AADR started a project to simplify the online registration process for submitting offers to calls for tender. AADR began modernisation of e-Licitatie, the country’s eProcurement portal. The portal will be extended with the Single Procurement Document (ESPD) and e-Certis.
ESPD is a self-declaration form used in public procurement procedures by public buyers and businesses. e-Certis is a mapping tool used to identify and compare certificates requested in European public procurement procedures.
