The Commission will issue a White Paper on practical steps to inter-connect eProcurement capacity across the internal market.

Indicator Status Evidence
Has the EC issued the White Paper on practical steps in inter-connect eProcurement capacity across the internal market? Yes In December 2011 EC adopted new legislative proposals on public procurement: http://ec.europa.eu/internal_market/publicprocurement/modernising_rules/reform_proposals_en.htm These include suggestions for ambitious measures on electronic procurement, aiming at full electronic communication in public procurement, no later than two years after the transposition deadline of the adopted Directive. In addition, in April 2012 EC published COM 179 "A strategy for e-procurement": http://ec.europa.eu/internal_market/publicprocurement/docs/eprocurement/strategy/COM_2012_en.pdf Also in June 2012 EC organized the Conference on Electronic Procurement – Challenges and Opportunities: http://ec.europa.eu/internal_market/publicprocurement/e-procurement/conferences/index_en.htm These actions have therefore superseded the originally foreseen white paper process.
