Public administration and utilities

Improve procurement operations with PRO-Q's functionality intended to:
  • Ensure the transparency and traceability of operations and communications and reduce litigation and legal costs;
  • Scan the Identification Bidding Code (CIG) through integration with the Information System for the Monitoring of Procurements (SIMOG) of Avcp and publish tender information automatically on official journals (L. 190/12);
  • Increase the number of tendering procedures you can simultaneously manage and the number of suppliers involved to increase competition and lower prices;
  • Speed up operations in full compliance with procurement rules L.163/06 smi (automatisms, pre-configurations);
  • Streamline and simplify procedures by automating low value-added tasks (e.g., via deadline alerts) and the shift to electronic documents;
  • Reduce costs for incidental expenses (postal, paper, printers...);
  • Create and assign user profiles with different roles according to tasks and responsibilities;
  • Centrally manage all communications relating to procurement procedures, avoiding the dispersion of information between different operators;
  • Acquire analytical knowledge of the procurement process via interfaces with other business systems (accounting, business intelligence, etc.).


With Pro-Q, e-sourcing operates in full compliance with local regulations on the electronic management of procurement processes in the public administration and companies in ordinary or special industries.

The regulatory framework emerged in recent years and particularly strengthened with the Spending Review, rests upon the following elements:

  • Directive 2004/18/EC - European directive which gave a decisive impetus to the standardisation of procurement processes in European public institutions, with explicit references to "e-procurement" and "electronic auction";
  • European Directive 18, favoring the merging of goods, services and works procurement procedures, clearly defining the concept of "electronic auction" and introducing new "purchasing systems";
  • New EU rules on public procurement and concession contracts approved by Parliament on January 2014 to be implement into the national law within the next 24 months.

The EU rules aim to ensure better quality and value for money when public authorities buy or lease works, goods or services. The new legislation sets, for the first time, common EU standards on concession contracts to boost fair competition and ensure best value for money by introducing new award criteria that place more emphasis on environmental considerations, social aspects and innovation.
