The eProcurement Forum at ePractice.eu is an initiative sponsored by the European Commission to help all the practitioners in public electronic procurement ("eProcurement") in Europe to meet and share their experiences and knowledge, to ask and provide support. The eProcurement Forum is an open space for professionals to debate and exchange knowledge on public electronic procurement, from tendering to invoicing. The forum is open to practitioners from European administrations, from public and private organisations, from academia and research centres. Your contribution is essential! Publish your case, provide your opinion and share your documents.
For any suggestions, comments or inquiries you may have regarding the eProcurement Forum, please contact Vassilia Orfanou, facilitator of the forum.
For other information, submissions or suggestions about the ePractice content or for inquiries on technical matters, please contact directly the Helpdesk.
The eProcurement Forum at Joinup is an initiative sponsored by the European Commission to help all the practitioners in public electronic procurement (“eProcurement”) in Europe to meet and share their experiences and knowledge, to ask and provide support. The community is open to practitioners from European administrations, from public and private organisations, from academia and research centres. Hopefully such variety of stakeholders will provide different contributions, approaches and points of view.
The eProcurement Forum is an open space to express opinions and exchange knowledge and where members are encouraged to provide contributions and participate in the discussions and events. It is not an official Commission site.
The community is mainly focused on technical and organisational aspects of eProcurement.

We have the ambitious objective to make the eProcurement Forum the main reference point in Europe for exchanging ideas and finding knowledge on eProcurement and related topics. We can reach it with your help! How?
Once you have joined the community, you can contribute in several ways. For example, you can:
· Invite friends, colleagues and any other practitioner you are in contact with to visit our community and become a member.
· Describe your own experience in developing eProcurement systems by submitting cases.
· Provide documents to be included in the Library section through the “Propose a library item” option.
