On the 22nd of May the Multi Stakeholder’s Expert Group on e-procurement (EXEP) from DG Grow and members of the e-procurement pilot of the TOOP project met to discuss the current status of the e-procurement pilot.
After an introduction by DG Grow about the objectives of the meeting, the current status on e-procurement pilot was presented by TOOP representatives. Then, participants were able to discuss the influence of the GDPR on the implementation of the once-only principle and ESPD (European Single Procurement Document) in the e-procurement area.
