This report released by the Government of Australia Information Management Office provides a summary of the issues, key learnings and challenges associated with the five public E-procurement implementations that participated in the review of public E-procurement implementations. This information was used to shape future direction for E-procurement in the Australian Government.

The report begins with a summary of key learnings and benefits of implementing E-procurement systems.  The case studies are organized in a common way incorporating the following three framework components – as noted in the report:

  • “E-readiness refers to the current use and potential levels of adoption of e-procurement in government, shaped and constrained by technological and institutional environments and events at the local, national and trans-national levels. This concept addresses why particular e-procurement activities have been implemented

  • E-intensity refers to the uptake of e-procurement, such as the size, growth and specific forms that are actually adopted. This concept addresses what e-procurement activities are currently being undertaken

  • E-impact refers to the ways in which e-procurement has transformed business models and value chains in government agencies. The concept addresses key outcomes from its use, major impediments to further progress and goals and objectives for the future”
