The Ministry of the Vice-presidency and of the Economy and Finance, through the Public Procurement Advisory Board, has set up a Public Procurement Services Platform for the various contracting authorities of the public administration of the Generalitat of Catalonia and of its associated or dependent public sector, as well as for economic operators in public markets.cap.detail.organs.search = Show tenders of the contracting authority and linked entities
The Platform has been designed as a single, comprehensive and integrated portal for the dissemination of information relating to the procurement activity of the public administration of the Generalitat of Catalonia and for the dissemination of the contractor profiles of its contracting authorities, in accordance with the provisions of the legislation on public sector contracts. The Platform has been created as an open system that can incorporate other government authorities in Catalonia, which can also post their contractor profile and use the services available on the platform for public and private operators.
The information and the design of the software application of the Platform have made it possible for economic operators in public markets, particularly companies, to access a series of services and features enabling access to information and secure transactional relationships between contracting authorities and business, with the ensuing reduction in public procurement costs.
Lastly, as required by article 53 of the Consolidated Text of the Law on public sector contracts, approved of by Royal legislative decree 3/2011, of 14 November, the IT application containing the contractor profiles associated with the Platform has an electronic device allowing reliable tracking of the start date of the public dissemination of the information included and its integrity. This ensures that the information can be securely published on the Internet to all legal intents and purposes, under the terms set down in the aforementioned Consolidated Text.
