the issue
The Issue
  • Single Market legislator has increasingly been opting for electronic solutions
  • Assumption that the building blocks of the information society are in place
  • The real world is full of surprises
single market review november 2007
Single Market ReviewNovember 2007

Single Market policy makers want interoperability

across e-government solutions:

  • ICT is essential tool to make the Single Market work
  • Risk that Member States opt for incompatible solutions
  • New “e-barriers” could emerge for end-users
  • Need to redouble efforts to avoid market fragmentation and promote commonly agreed ICT solutions
  • Action Plan in 2008 to promote implementation of interoperable signatures and e-authentication
3 single market initiatives that create demand for interoperable solutions
3 Single Market initiatives that create demand for interoperable solutions
  • SEPA and e-invoicing
  • Electronic public procurement
  • Services Directive
sepa and e invoicing
SEPA and e-invoicing
  • SEPA:
    • Single Euro Payments Area aims to create a world class payment system for the EU
  • E-invoicing:
    • Essential part of an efficient financial supply chain as it links the internal processes of enterprises to the payment systems
  • SEPA & E-Invoicing:
    • SEPA and a successful European e-Invoicing initiative would complement each other, by linking e-invoicing directly with payments
sepa and e invoicing1
SEPA and e-invoicing
  • Huge Benefits:
    • Savings potential of e-Invoicing (SEPA Cap Gemini study):
      • Cost reductions due to e-Invoice = 70-75% (of a paper invoice)
      • Estimated potential cost savings of € 238 Billion over 6 years
  • Risk:
    • In many MS, individual e-invoicing initiatives are emerging:
      • Risk of emergence of multiple solutions which are not interoperable
      • If this risks materializes: full potential of e-invoicing will not be achieved
the eu framework for eprocurement
The EU FRAMEWORK for ePROCUREMENT

A comprehensive legal and policy framework

  • Entry into force of new public procurement directives (Apr 2004)
  • Transposition by MS (21 months - 31 Jan 2006) – nearly complete
  • Action plan on e-procurement 2005-2007 (Dec 2004)
  • i2010 eGovernment Action plan (April 2006)
the eu legal framework objective
The EU LEGAL FRAMEWORK: objective

Allow automation of full procurement-to-payment process chain preserving all existing procedural guarantees

the eu legal framework rules 1
The EU LEGAL FRAMEWORK: rules (1)
  • Requirements for electronic communication and receipt of offers
    • Non-discrimination
    • Transparency
    • Fair competition
  • Rules for innovative electronic purchasing practices
    • Repetitive purchases, e.g. dynamic purchasing systems
    • Electronic auctions
the eu legal framework rules 2
The EU LEGAL FRAMEWORK: rules (2)
  • Electronic means on equal footing with paper
  • All stages of the procedure can be conducted online
  • Flexible and technology-neutral framework
implications for ict products and services 1
Implications for ICT products and services(1)
  • e-procurement creates strong demand for specialised ICT products
    • comprehensive e-procurement systems solutions and electronic documents
    • specific tools, e.g. e-auctions, e-catalogues, Dynamic Purchasing systems (‘DPS’)
    • standardised product descriptions and inventory management solutions (e.g. product classifications and dictionaries)
implications for ict products and services 2
Implications for ICT products and services (2)
  • links to B2B applications for e-ordering, e-invoicing and e-payments
  • user-friendly, multilingual interfaces
implications for ict products and services 3
Implications for ICT products and services (3)

The challenge

  • All solutions must preserve existing procedural guarantees
  • To do that they must be generally available, non-discriminatory and interoperable
  • All solutions must provide secure means of electronic authentication and signature
the economic prize what are we talking about 1
THE ECONOMIC PRIZE:What are we talking about? (1)
  • The public sector: by far the biggest buyer in the economy
    • Estimated total EU public procurement (2006): 1.800 bn. EUR (16% of EU GDP)
    • Estimated total above thresholds (TED): 370 bn. EUR (3% of EU GDP)
the economic prize what are we talking about 2
THE ECONOMIC PRIZE:What are we talking about? (2)
  • Very large savings and efficiency gains
    • from e-procurement: 5% on prices, 50-80% on transaction costs
    • 5% of savings may correspond to up to 1% of GDP
services directive
Services Directive
  • Entry into force - 28.12.2006
  • Implementation –by 28.12.2009
  • Objectives
    • Remove barriers to the establishment of service providers (Art. 43 ECT)

  • Horizontal nature–wide range ofdifferent services
main implementation aspects
Main Implementation Aspects

  • Rights of recipients
  • Quality of services
electronic procedures article 8
Electronic procedures (Article 8)
  • Possibility of completion of all formalities and procedures at a distance and by electronic means
  • Availability for national and foreign service providers
  • Cross border dimension
  • Interoperability issues
implications for ict products and services
Implications for ICT products and services
  • Services Directive creates strong demand for specialised ICT products
    • Transactional software for completion of e-procedures
    • User-friendly multilingual interfaces
    • Software for back office integration
    • Software to create standardised forms such as form generator
    • Tools for electronic delivery of documents such as document safes, personal web spaces

european council conclusions 13 14 march 2008
European Council Conclusions13/14 March 2008

In the context of the Services Directive it is an immediate priority to:

“Improve the functioning of the “e-Single Market” by putting in place cross-border interoperable solutions for electronic signature and e-authentication”

main interoperability challenges for the single market
Main Interoperability Challenges for the Single Market
  • Electronic signatures
    • Use of qualified signatures
    • Use of advanced signatures
    • Issues related to trust
  • Electronic identification and authentication
    • Different systems ranging from soft to strong ID
    • Temporary solution by end of 2009
    • Large Scale Pilot on e-ID aiming at interoperable EU wide solution
  • Documents
    • Transition from paper to electronic world
