Apart from the adaptations that at a technical level lead to improvements in traceability, usability, accessibility, interoperability, at a functional level the design of both the management tool of the public bodies that host their contractor profiles in the PSCP, and of the platform itself and expands the information published in structured fields and in open and reusable formats, providing, among other improvements, the specific phase of contract execution.

Most relevant improvements

Specifically, the most relevant changes and modifications brought about by this transformation are the following:

Functional evolution:

  • Better adaptation to the LCSP, through the incorporation of the information provided for in the law in structured fields.
  • Publication of batches independently, respecting their character and allowing each one to be in different publication phases.
  • New phases of publications.
    • Under evaluation, where the files are included from the end date of the tender submission period until their award.
    • In execution, which allows information on the various contractual situations to be published in a structured way.
  • Expansion of open data files, guaranteeing greater interoperability and transparency of all information published in the PSCP.

Technical development:

  • New access URL.
  • Updating the infrastructure of the tool and its technical components.
  • Improvement of usability, traceability and accessibility.
  • Technical separation of the e-Licita and PSCP tools, making the two tools independent and thus allowing them to be used individually.

Evolution of e-Billing tools:

  • Incorporation of negotiation phases with specific configurations for each phase.
  • Homogenization of the Digital Envelope and Online Tender Submission tools, both from the point of view of bidding companies and public managers.
  • Expansion of the functionalities of the Electronic Tender Submission tool by incorporating those of the Digital Envelope, thus giving contracting bodies greater autonomy.

News in the implementation of services:

  • Separation of the PSCP and eLicita services, which until now were included in the PSCP registration process. The eLicita tools will be disabled for entities that use other electronic tendering tools to prevent them from being activated by mistake and compromising the tendering process.
  • Renewal of the PSCP web services; during the year 2023 the AOC and its integrated user bodies will have to adapt to the new web services that will incorporate the new features of the renewed tool. While the adaptations are made there will be backward compatibility with the current service.
