cen bii2 the postaward
CEN BII2 – The PostAward
  • Focuses on providing support for processes of purchase of goods
  • Initial scope is public procurement within EU
    • Applies as well to B2B scenarios
  • Most popular profiles from previous workshop have been updated
    • Focus on flexibility by increasing number of single document profiles
  • CEN BII-1 results also availible to implementers


  • Post Award has worked on ten profiles
  • Grouping of profiles into processes :
    • Five Ordering
    • Three Invoicing
    • Two payment
    • One fulfilment


workshop process
Workshop process
  • Number of meetings
    • The group held 47 meetings in over two years
  • Number of public commets
    • 385 comments, all successfully resolved


our main results
Our main results
  • What is new
    • New ordering profiles, Ordering, Simple Ordering
    • New single document profiles, Dispatch, Statement
    • New Syntax mappings provided:
      • UBL 2.1
      • UN / CEFACT D11A
  • What is changed
    • Based on implementers feedback, updated invoice, order, dispatch and statement profiles
    • Credit Note is aligned with Invoice data model
    • Corrective Invoice is merged into general Invoice data model


our deliverable artefacts
Our deliverable artefacts
  • Include:
    • Profile and process guideline
    • Requirement specifications
    • Syntax independent data models
    • Syntax mappings
    • Business rules
    • Validation tools
    • Guidelines on codelists
    • Guidelines on conformance


the road ahead
The road ahead
  • BII3
    • Further refinement of requirements and information models
    • Clarification and support for implementers
    • CEN TC – eInvoicing datamodel standard (to be discussed)
  • Implementers - Quick pick up in market is expected of:
    • Ordering profiles
    • Statement and dispatch profiles (single document profiles)
    • Updated eInvoice Only profile
  • National policies
    • Growing number of regional and national governments will base their eInvoicing effort on BII
    • Already a substantial number


why do we focus on small documents
Why do we focus on small documents

The market for electronic procurement is an example of “the long tail” phenomena

By lowering the Cut-Off point, solutions will become economically feasible to implement in the long tail

  • Number of documents per customer

BII will lower the Cut-Off point

Cut-off point!

Number of documents exchanged with each customer


Customers, ranked by volume

conformance vs interoperability
Conformance vs. interoperability
  • BII provides a framework for setting up national or regional eInvoicing or eProcurement policy
  • Our conformance model provides flexibility within a framework that provides interoperability
  • We strike a balance
    • Definition of Conformance is key
    • Use of extension methodology
  • Key to wider dissemination


benefits for users
Benefits for users
  • For senders
    • Conformant documents can be received by all
  • For receivers
    • Can be used as basis for an EDI agreement
    • Single semi-automated process can be set up for handling of documents from wide variety of trading partner (in the long tail)
  • For implementers
    • Guidelines and tools to support implementers
  • For governments
    • All invoices can be moved to electronic form
    • A Fast Track starter kit to implementing a national eInvoicing policy
