The European VCD System: Facilitating Public Procurement through Criteria-to-Evidence Mapping

Abstract : To facilitate European Union (EU)-wide interoperability in public eProcurement, the European Commission co-funds the PEPPOL project. PEPPOL aims at setting up pan-European pilot solutions that conjointly exist with national infrastructures. One of the key building blocks is the Virtual Company Dossier (VCD), an electronic cross-border document container that carries attestations and candidate statements required to evidence the fulfilment of non-exclusion and selection criteria in public tendering procedures. The attestations and candidate statements available in the various Member States often differ in their quality, relevance to certain criteria and format. In this contribution we present a concept to facilitate the correct mapping of national evidences to selection and exclusion criteria of a contracting authority from a different EU Member State. We present a solution that supports mutual recognition of diplomas, certificates or other evidence with a decision-support system called the European VCD System.
