WHAT IS PEPPOL?
The goal of the PEPPOL (Pan--European Public Procurement Online) project is to offer European companies the ability to provide goods or services to any public sector buyer, anywhere in Europe.

PEPPOL has created software specifications, made open source software sample implementations, and established standards based common business processes and an open electronic document transport infrastructure. Through this, PEPPOL is a potential backbone for eProcurement in Europe.

Governments are the largest buyers of private sector services, accounting for around 19% of the EU's Gross Domestic Product (GDP), with over Euro
2,200 billion spent annually. It has been estimated that if eProcurement were introduced over all EU contracting authorities, annual savings could
exceed 50 billion EUR. However, less than 5% of total procurement budgets in the EU are currently being awarded through electronic systems.


MAIN CHALLENGES:
• The lack of common business process standards and solutions make eProcurement complex and costly.

• Differing legal requirements make tendering across borders difficult for suppliers, in particular SMEs.

• Market fragmentation has resulted in technologically isolated "islands of eProcurement" in Europe, hampering interoperability.

Since 2008, the PEPPOL project has been developing and implementing the following components to enable eProcurement across Europe: Validation of eSignatures issued by certificate authorities from any European country;
a Virtual Company Dossier to provide standardised company information and mutually recognised evidences; eCatalogues to exchange information
about goods and services in a standardised format; eOrdering and eInvoicing using a defined set of processes to share common business information. The PEPPOL Transport Infrastructure (eDelivery) interconnects eProcurement systems. Access to the PEPPOL infrastructure takes place through access points, which are currently provided by both government agencies and private companies.

PEPPOL COMPONENTS:
From spring 2011, PEPPOL started its production pilot phase with organisations using PEPPOL enabled solutions and components in real life transactions. It is expected that PEPPOL usage will continue to expand through a combination of public and private sector adoption.
