The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has successfully implemented BiP’s Delta platform and moved from paper based procurement to a full eProcurement, covering the entire project cycle from planning to tendering and award of goods, works and loan-funded consultancy contracts.

The new Delta system allows suppliers anywhere in the world to register and obtain tender documentation for contracts procured under the Bank’s Procurement Policies and Rules with a few clicks instead of waiting for several days.

BiP ensured that EBRD’s strict procedures and checks were put in place and the bespoke modifications to the Delta platform were delivered rapidly through an agile development environment to fulfill the requirements and timescales of the Bank.

“We welcome the opportunity to develop a secure and easy to use service with the EBRD,” said Scott Smith COO of the Global Services Division at BiP. “I believe the EBRD system is a first for the Development Bank marketplace.”

“We have successfully worked with the platform provider to configure their existing system to EBRD requirements and re-draft our standard documentation suitable for an electronic process,” said Richard Gargrave of the Procurement Department.

The EBRD invests in change in more than 30 countries across Europe, central Asia and the southern and eastern Mediterranean. Since its establishment in 1991, EBRD has become the largest financial investor in its region of operations which stretches from central Europe to central Asia and the southern and eastern Mediterranean. EBRD is owned by 64 countries, the European Union and the European Investment Bank.
