Notice Abstract

8723 - E-Invoicing Solution Rochdale Borough Council (RBC), Tameside Council and Stockport Council with the support of STAR Procurement, are looking to identify a strategic partner for a front-end e-invoicing solution that is compatible with the existing Accounts Payable/Financial system within each authority in order to further automate time consuming invoice processes that exist. In 2014, the European Commission introduced a new e-Invoicing Directive 2014/55/EU and European Standard for e- invoicing. This was to try to standardise the various e-invoicing formats used across the EU, which cause unnecessary complexity and high costs for businesses and public bodies. In March 2019, the UK Parliament passed Statutory Instrument (SI) The Public Procurement (Electronic Invoices etc.) Regulations 2019 in order to transpose the Directive into UK law. The SI came into force as of 18 April 2019 and took the effect of amending several pieces of procurement legislation, most notably the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (PCR 2015), to allow for e-invoicing as per the EU Directive The new Regulations required contracting authorities to be in a position to receive and process e-invoices that comply with the European standard on e-invoicing. Each authority currently has a solution to deal with any invoice that is received in an electronic format, but is looking for improved automated solutions that provide enhancement to these existing practices. This soft market exercise is looking for e invoicing solutions that facilitates the secure exchange of information between buyers and suppliers, automates the receipt, transmission, validation and enrichment invoices in any electronic or paper format (PDFs, PEPPOL, XML and most other electronic formats) against Purchase Orders that are issued by each Council. For the purpose of this soft market test exercise, we are actively looking for expressions of interests from suppliers who can fulfil these requirements. Please respond by 17:00 on Tuesday 17th November 2020.
