Procurement, the decree for digitization in the Gazzetta

29/10/2021 – The decree for the digitization of public tenders arrives four years late. The DM 148/2021, published in the Official Gazette, establishes that all tenders will take place on a digital platform and sets the rules for accessing the system, exchanging communications and submitting offers.

The new system, which according to the provisions of the Procurement Code was to come into force in 2017, however, risks never becoming operational. The decree published in the Gazzetta provides for a series of steps before digitization becomes fully operational.

The first step concerns the Agency for Digital Italy (Agid), which must issue some guidelines to define the methods of digitization, the description of flows, data schemes and European standards of interoperability of telematic systems.

Starting from the adoption of the Agid guidelines, the Contracting Stations will have six months of time for the adaptation of their IT systems.

These timelines do not take into account the new Procurement Code that is about to appear on the horizon. In fact, Parliament is debating the delegation bill on public contracts. The new Procurement Code will be born from the criteria contained in the delegation, which will almost certainly cleanse the myriad of existing implementing decrees to return to the single regulation.

Procurement, digital communications

The decree published in the Gazzetta provides that access to the system takes place after user identification via Spid. Through the same system it will be possible to exchange information and send requests for clarification.

The system will be able to handle requests for access to documents, at the same time guaranteeing IT security and the protection of personal data.

Procurement digitalization, participation in tenders

The system will allow economic operators to fill in and submit bids through web interface or through applications prepared for the acquisition of documents. Once the documents have been uploaded, the system will send a notification that the documentation has been received. If all the required documents are not entered, the system will send an error message.

The preliminary activities of the selection board, the opening and verification of administrative documentation, the evaluation of technical offers and economic offers and the acquisition of the awarding decision.
