EU-Tenders is the platform that connects you to public sector bodies all over Europe and gives you the opportunity to connect with them and send them your bid on a safe and easy way.
You don't need to connect to national specific web sites every time you want to apply for a business opportunity, you can do it from this single point.
Sell your works, services, and supplies throughout Europe on a new way.
It's free, it's easy and it's secure.
If you are a supplier that wants to make business with public sector bodies from outside your own country you already know how tough it is because there are cross border barriers like qualifications which are not recognized, national requirements for signatures, usage of specific electronic tools or even language barriers that makes it too complicate for applying to them.
Using EU-Tenders you can jump all these cross border barriers and communicate with the contracting authority in a very simple way.
This is the reason why using EU-Tenders you will be able to automatically communicate with other European procurement solutions that conform to the same standards.
Yes, as long as the contracting authority that calls for the tender is using a procurement platform conformant to PEPPOL eTendering standards and it is also connected to the PEPPOL network. You will find this information referenced most probably inside the call for tender documentation.

EU-Tenders works as a communication platform based on messages. You can send messages to contracting authorities and receive messages from them.
The messages are exchanged using the PEPPOL network and the European eDelivery standards for secure digital messaging.
Right now there are three messages you can use:
Tell the contracting authority who you are and that you are interested on a procurement procedure.
The contracting authority can accept your subscription and keep you informed about updates on this procurement procedure.
Ask the contracting authority to send you all the latest public data and documents of a procurement project.
The contracting authority will send you all the information you need in order to prepare your tender.
Once you have prepared your tender use EU-Tenders to safely submit your tender to the contracting authority.
The contracting authority will send you an acknowledgement with time stamp of reception and hash code of the tender.
OpenPEPPOL, and PIXELWARE as part of it, keep working together to improve and enlarge these standards with new messages and functionalities.
