EPROC

EPROC (Public Sector E-Procurement Project) was a collaborative European initiative with partners from Germany, Holland, Ireland and Wales. The aim of the project was to encourage and support SMEs in the more rural areas to adopt new e-procurement processes and tools.

EPROC helped SMEs understand the implications of what they are being asked to do and have greater knowledge of how to benefit from new e-procurement developments. In order to achieve these aims EPROC produced a number of intuitive guides, online resources and developed the online EPROC Learning Zone.
