E-invoicing in public procurement: another step towards end-to-end e-procurement and e-government in Europe.

juin 26, 2013

“Switching from paper to fully automated invoicing can cut the costs of receiving an invoice from 30-50 euro to 1 euro”

Commissioner for Internal Market and Services Michel Barnier said: "Ensuring that public administrations in the EU are modern and efficient is a priority for the European Commission. Switching to e-procurement, and particularly to e-invoicing, can bring significant savings and make life easier both for the governments and for the thousands of businesses active in the Internal Market. Switching from paper to fully automated invoicing can cut the costs of receiving an invoice from 30-50 euro to 1 euro. These are good and useful savings in the current economic climate. As the largest spender in the EU, the public sector should play a leading role in stimulating its uptake."
