Overview of XVergabe.


The adoption of electronic tendering within the European Union is with approx. 13% compared to the targeted 50% within the year 2010 still very low. A research paper from the Deutsche Bank beginning 2011 comes to the conclusion that between € 50 bn. and € 70 bn. could be saved within the EU each year if there would be a full transition to eProcurement. Nevertheless a full transition to eTendering without enabling interoperability would not do as there are already more than 330 platforms spread over Europe. While for contracting authorities (CAs) this is not a problem as they use only one platform an economic operator (EO) must learn to use all those 330 platforms to participate all call for tenders.
