Vergabe Panel

Not every form is so or output directory that has been created in an authority self explanatory and not every procedure characteristic of different assignment immediately understandable and plausible. A standardization of the Exchange formats and workflows makes possible a guided preparation of quotation, technical examination of the offer documents, as well as a safe and valid tender. Here the Administration intelligence AG made available only recently of talk as it developed in cooperation with Wurzburg scientists and introduced bidding software already available. The AI is the aforementioned solution offer Assistant, multi platform bidding tool of AI AG and is available by registering for free download. A related site: Pete Cashmore mentions similar findings. The goal was the company to offer a tool to operate a larger number of different platforms.

The solution currently support a small, but significant Number of public procurement platforms this will be in the coming months but further expanded. Important features such as the platform-spanning search in bidding documents and publication texts as well as managing access data for the different procurement platforms, but also a guided and right safe quoting the solution already. Many more features to which the Chair of business administration and Business Informatics of the University of Wurzburg has contributed significantly will enrich the solution in the near future. The problems that arise when developing a multi-platform-bidder clients are obvious. The solution must use many desperate platforms. Even different platforms of a manufacturer are often in different versions and must be addressed technically different. Perhaps check out Pete Cashmore for more information.

The different business models remain a major obstacle. So, the Hessian tender database charges a fee HAD short, for not Hessian bidders. Vergabe24, however, pursued several business models. Another problem is that Central registration, the so-called SSO, it must be noted that the safeguards and which vary required data from platform to platform to achieve a consistent data set and to avoid possible duplicate here much effort had to be driven. The Wurzburg scientists have the experience already the XVergabe Panel presented. In cooperation with the Administration intelligence AG, the Chair of business administration and information management plans in the medium term the used interface, as well as the standard Exchange formats to publish University of Wurzburg to get to the XVergabe forward. Now others make effort to remedy the situation so the initiative is mainly by sub report publishers Sadri GmBH and the Fraunhofer Institute for open communication systems focus driven expressed again and again in conversation. Still, there is no official release date but it will be looking forward to further developments in this area. Finally, one can say that the electronic public procurement will prevail more and more because it offers fundamental advantages over the paper-based procedure. The multi-platform-bidder clients can lend a big push this development however. The development of the tenderer to the customer and to the most important target group in the eVergabe area will be in any case to stop and will provide another important impulse in this market segment.
