  • EU consults on revising systems for public sector procurement: get involved!

    The European Commission is asking the public sector and businesses for their views on an updated version of the 'Common Procurement Vocabulary' (CPV), which is the EU-wide classification system for public procurement contracts.

    The CPV helps all EU businesses and SMEs to easily identify public procurement contracts offered by any EU public authority, irrespective of the original language of the tender notice, thereby increasing competition, efficiency and transparency. The updated version of the CPV takes account of recent market developments and new possibilities offered by electronic procurement, such as structuring and analysis of expenditure and compilation of statistics.

  • US: Bringing Innovation to Procurement

    Almost no one likes the procurement process. Here are some ideas for changing it.

    When a mid-sized city in the northeastern United States became frustrated with its antiquated accounting processes a few years ago, officials there decided to seek a modern, technology-based solution. Hoping to capitalize on the latest accounting technology while minimizing the city’s investment in new servers and software, they opted to pursue a cloud solution.

    Mindful of stringent government procurement rules, the city put together an RFP. But rather than write an RFP from scratch outlining its interest in a cloud-based solution, the city borrowed much of the text from an RFP written years before. The vendors that reviewed the RFP were confused. Here the city was saying it wanted a cloud-based solution, yet its requirements as outlined in the RFP were inconsistent with such a solution. As a result, most of the interested vendors simply did not bid.
