Digitalisation and disruptive technologies have now also reached public administration. They are leading to a fundamental change to and expansion of the possibilities in administrative work. Plus, they create new ways for public institutions to communicate and work together, both with each other and with citizens. New opportunities are pitted against big challenges.
The German law concerning e-government (EGovG) enables and obliges the federal government, states and municipalities to offer electronic administration services that are simpler, more user-friendly and more efficient. This is accompanied by digitalisation and far-reaching measures to promote digital administration.
The key elements of the federal government’s e-governance law and the corresponding federal state laws are as follows:
You can benefit from our sector-specific expertise – we offer you our services as you journey towards digital administration.
Following reforms to public procurement law, public bodies (as the contracting party) and private companies (as the tenderer) are now required to use electronic communications for all EU tenders above the prescribed threshold.
To meet this requirement, e-Vergabe, the German government’s tendering platform, handles tender processes digitally – from the call for tender to awarding the contract – across Germany and Europe.The newly created platform provides an efficient, easy-to-use solution for both contracting authorities and private companies alike.
For many years, adesso has been supporting the Public Procurement Office of the German Federal Ministry of the Interior in the maintenance and development of the federal government’s e-tendering platform, which is used for the majority of the tender processes carried out in Germany. Updates are made to the platformall the time to implement legal requirements, such as EU procurement directives and national regulations, as well as integrate functionalities, for example, to support the European Single Procurement Document (ESPD) or German Procurement Statistics Regulation (VergStatVO).
Our many years of experience in implementing electronic procurement systems allow us to quickly and reliably record and implement requirements under public procurement law at both an EU and a national level.
Let's talk about how we can work together to identify processes and consolidate new applications.
