eProcurement User Group (ePUG)
We have re-established an eProcurement user group which will meet on 27 November 2019, 2pm – 4pm.
The group will be used to feed into the direction of the eProcurement toolset. If you would like to register to attend please contact us on ICTProcurement@gov.wales by 22 November 2019.
The meeting will be held in Cardiff, but users will be able to join the meeting remotely using GoToMeeting. Please contact us on ICTProcurement@gov.wales for details on how to join the GoToMeeting.
ESPD (European Single Procurement Document)
Following discussions with stakeholders and the Welsh Government policy team, Wales will continue to use ESPD if the UK leaves the EU.
Stakeholders recently took part in an evaluation of ESPD solutions in Sell2Wales and eTenderWales. We have also worked closely with colleagues in Scottish Government to understand their implementation of ESPD, and align our work with them wherever possible.
We continue to work on developing a long term solution which we will make available to all stakeholders later on this financial year. We will share a clear delivery plan for the solution with stakeholders by the end of November 2019.
We recently provided an update on the delayed award of this procurement.
