CEN WS/BII 3
CEN BII standardises eProcurement processes, documents and content, supporting EU-wide interoperability, and covering the full procurement cycle, from notification in the pre-award phase, to payment in the post-award phase.
CEN BII defined a minimum set of core information elements of the documents and business processes involved in electronic public procurement. These are published as a set of technical specifications, called CEN BII profiles, and documented as CEN Workshop Agreements (CWAs).
CEN BII also provided mappings to two syntaxes from OASIS UBL and UN/CEFACT. These are published as Implementation guidelines.
The results from the last phase of the BII initiative (CEN WS/BII 3) include the following CWAs:
|CWA||Title||Profiles||Info. Req. model||Syntax impl. guide||Syntax binding||Transaction validation artifacts||Specifications, guidelines and reports|
|17025-1||Overview and Architecture||1||1||17|
