National e-Procurement context
In November 2014, the Single Face To Industry (SFTI) – a joint initiative in the Swedish public sector to promote e-procurement – recommend the use of the PEPPOL network for electronic procurement, to enable connected buyers and suppliers to easily communicate with each other.
The recommendation follows a previous SFTI decision to use PEPPOL as the messaging standard for the following electronic documents: catalogue, purchase order and invoice, which are united under the concept of Svehandel.
The Agency for Digital Government (DIGG) participation in PEPPOL are focused on the introduction of eInvoicing, e-procurement and the establishment of common infrastructure designed to facilitate cross-border trade.
The Swedish government has decided to mandate eInvoicing to the public sector, forbidding paper invoices, and will implement the EU Directive on e-invoicing in public procurement into national law by April 1st 2019.
Use of PEPPOL in Sweden
The following PEPPOL components are currently in use in Sweden:
- Transport Infrastructure (Access Points and SMP providers)
DIGG has the role of a PEPPOL Authority, which means that the DIGG is responsible for the registration of companies that wish to become an Access Point (AP) or a Service Metadata Publisher (SMP). DIGG is also responsible for reporting, securing Sweden’s national interests, aligning overarching interests in the e-business space with other agencies (e.g. SFTI http://sfti.se/tjanster/englishpages.1925.html , SALAR https://skl.se/tjanster/englishpages.411.html and Kammarkollegiet https://www.kammarkollegiet.se/en ), quality assurance of the operators’ services and ensuring the long-term adoption of e-procurement using the PEPPOL network as the platform.
The long-term goal of Swedish involvement in PEPPOL is to:
- Facilitate cross-border electronic trade – for both the public and private sectors.
• Increase public sector utilisation of e-invoicing and e-procurement through the use of open standards.
• Provide technical infrastructure to overcome the barriers that often prevent connectivity today.
