The latest eProcurement news from NPS.
ESPD: Name change
Following the departure of the UK from the European Union on 31 December 2020, the European Single Procurement Document (ESPD) is now formally known as the Single Procurement Document (SPD). We do not expect any other changes, however, we are working with the service providers (Jaggaer and Proactis) to develop the SPD, so that it can be directly imported from Sell2Wales into a tender within eTenderwales.

The next eProcurement user group for buyers will take place on Microsoft Teams on Thursday 11 February 13:30pm -15:00pm. If you are a buyer, and would like to attend, please e-mail the ICT mailbox: ICTProcurement@gov.wales.
