The closing conference of the CEN BII Workshop took place on 9 March 2016, in Brussels.
The CEN BII workshop contributes to achieve European eProcurement policy objectives on interoperability by developing the required technical specifications.
The CEN BII workshop addresses issues caused by the diversified approaches to e-procurement across Europe, supporting organisations for communicating easily with each other, by providing common specifications for interoperable e-procurement solutions.
The CEN BII initiative puts EU policies into action by gathering and implementing business and legal requirements for interoperability in public procurement, through commonly agreed specifications.
ERP vendors, system integrators and IT service providers can offer standardised e-procurement software modules and services that are interoperable across Europe, expanding their business potential outside national borders.
