E-procurement of telecom services for the public sector

E-procurement of telecom services for the public sector E-procurement has hitherto mostly been used as a tool to make the procurement process more efficient. However, it could also be used in more explorative ways than just for digitalisation of the existing procurement process. E-procurement has a big potential when used in more innovative ways. This paper explores the conditions and possibilities in order to apply the tool of e-procurement of telecom services for the public sector. Almost every economic activity and many a social contact include the use of telecommunications. The public sector is especially depending on well functioning telecom, as telecom is a base for many services provided by the authorities. To use electronic tools for procurement of telecom could be of great help. To do so, it is of great value to have a structured, modular and scalable model with standardised interfaces and defined functions on individual and organisational levels. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Knowledge Management Studies Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

E-procurement has hitherto mostly been used as a tool to make the procurement process more efficient. However, it could also be used in more explorative ways than just for digitalisation of the existing procurement process. E-procurement has a big potential when used in more innovative ways. This paper explores the conditions and possibilities in order to apply the tool of e-procurement of telecom services for the public sector. Almost every economic activity and many a social contact include the use of telecommunications. The public sector is especially depending on well functioning telecom, as telecom is a base for many services provided by the authorities. To use electronic tools for procurement of telecom could be of great help. To do so, it is of great value to have a structured, modular and scalable model with standardised interfaces and defined functions on individual and organisational levels.
