As of 18 October, all elements of European public procurement will be electronic !

As of 18 October 2018, contracting authorities have an obligation to communicate with economic operators electronically, at least when the size of the contract is equal or superior to European thresholds.

As a reminder:  

In the classic sectors, the thresholds are as follows:

Works

≥ 5,548,000 euros

Supplies

≥ 221,000 euros (144,000 euros for federal contracting authorities)

Services

≥ 221,000 euros (144,000 euros for federal contracting authorities)

Social services and other specific services (chapter 6)

Supplies

The contracting authorities that still do not have such a platform can use the e-Tendering platform from FPS P&S (DG Federal Accountant and Procurement). You can find this platform on this website.
