The eProcurement Action Plan sets out how the Commission and Member States can best implement the e-procurement aspects of the new Public Procurement Directives adopted in 2004. The Action Plan aims to modernise the general procurement environment and encourages Member States to automate steps in all phases of the procurement cycle. The document - which takes into account the results of IDA eProcurement activities and considers the continuation of these activities under the IDABC programme - does not promote a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach but supports Member States in designing e-procurement solutions adapted to their needs. Prepared in close association with Member States and businesses, the document sets an ambitious timetable for 2005-2007.
