Two connectathon events will test cross-border transactions within Tendering pilot. Seven tendering systems across Europe such as TenderNed (NL), Negometrix (NL), ETHICS (DK), eVergabe (DE), Mercell (NO), Gatewit (PT), Vortal (PT) will take part in the e-SENS testing exercise held on 13th and 27th of October. The connectivity tests will be conducted in three phases:
- Subscribe to procedure,
- Access to procurement documents,
- Submit tender.
Within each phase, there will be three steps which represent sending the message by economic operator, reception by the contracting authority followed by replying with the confirmation message and its reception by the participating business.
