Electronic ESPD – What is it?

Electronic European Single Procurement Document (eESPD)

The new Electronic ESPD (eESPD) went live on the 28th of January 2019.

The Office of Government and Procurement provided the following information note about the new electronic format:

European Single Procuement Document Information Note

The European Single Procurement Document (ESPD) plays a crucial role in the digital transformation of public procurement. The ESPD is a tool that makes it easier to participate in public procurement. It is a single self-declaration form of suitability, financial status and abilities of a company used as preliminary evidence in all public procurement procedures in the EU above the EU threshold. The ESPD enables the participating companies to declare that they are not in a situation in which they may have to be excluded from the procedure, and that they meet the selection criteria.

This note contains information on how the European Single Procurement Document (ESPD) is to be used.

All public bodies must now issue and accept the ESPD form for all procurement exercises above the EU threshold. In its electronic format, the ESPD is known as eESPD.
