Our OGP action plan covers activities in the areas of developing public (e-)services, making state information assets (data) available, involving citizens in policy-making, and preventing corruption and conflicts of interest.
Estonia has been successful in creating public services that are easily and securely accessible to all.
Mercell's e tender system (MSS) is used by thousands of public buyers in Norway, Denmark and Sweden.
The MSS system is a web-based Saa S allowing authorities to manage the whole tender process in full compliance with EU Directives and national legislation.
The advanced and smart use of ICT systems is also making governance more open and transparent by enabling people to easily follow and participate in decision-making.
The improvement of e-services has also helped to reduce corruption and deepen accountability in the society and government.
The system meets all EU requirements for conducting an electronic tender process within public sector, and is continuously developed in accordance with the current regulations in the area, as well as national and European best practices in the field.
The Pan-European Public Procurement Online (PEPPOL) project has been developing and implementing the technology standards to align business processes for electronic procurement across all governments within Europe, aiming to expand market connectivity and interoperability between e-procurement communities.
