eGovernment & eProcurement

SERIKAT gives comprehensive support to the Basque contracting powers in the advertising process, helping ensure transparency in the public procurement framework.

SERIKAT’s solution forms part of an initiative undertaken by the Basque public procurement body, Contratación Pública en Euskadi (CPE-KPE). Various projects were carried out, resulting in an information system that meets a range of needs in the public procurement process.

The CPE-KPE’s information system consists of:

  • Electronic tendering
  • Official Contractor Registration (OCR)
  • Profile of contracting parties and profile of successful tenderers.
  • Temporary company authorisation (joint ventures, joint tenders and companies not registered in the ROC)
  • ATRIO procurement file manager
  • Basque Register of Contracts (REVASCON)
  • Classification of Companies.
  • Submission of notices to OJEU
  • Administrative Contractual Resources Body

As such, it forms the support for knowledge, analysis and research of public procurement, statistics in the area of public contracts, compliance with national and international requirements on information on public procurement and communication of contract information to other government bodies, in accordance with the principle of transparency.
The register will be the instrument used by the public authorities for review and continuous improvement of public procurement procedures and practices, analysis of the quality, reliability and efficiency of providers, and supervision of competition and transparency on public markets.
