CEN WS/BII 3
Launched in March 2013, the CEN WS/BII3 workshop continued the work to support interoperable electronic procurement. CEN WS/BII3 has the objective of providing increased value to the CEN WS/BII user community, by:
- filling the gaps to ensure that all relevant aspects of e-procurement are covered;
- facilitate increased use through capacity building;
- facilitate the implementation of BII by coordinating with standardization bodies to ensure that the (European) requirements defined in BII are considered;
- securing the continued relevance of the BII deliverables by providing a focal point for governance and lifecycle management.
The final BII 3 deliverables include additional requirements and are backward compatible with the profiles developed in the second phase of the workshop.
The CEN WS/BII 3 supported the relevant EU stakeholders involved in electronic procurement to ensure alignment with EU policies, providing guidance to implementation projects and strategic initiatives.
