the E-catalogue

From January to August 2018, 1,034 orders were placed through the online purchasing platform, an increase of 13.13% compared with 2017.

These 2018 purchases accounted for a turnover of 12,611,416 euros including VAT (an increase of 24% compared with the first eight months of 2017).

Nice detail: in 2017, the last four months accounted for more than 50% of the total turnover.

What is the E-catalogue?

The E-catalogue gives Brussels public institutions the opportunity to participate in group purchases for IT products and services, which means they do not have to launch an open call for tenders every time.  
Not only convenience and time savings, but also money is a determining factor in the increasing use of this application. After all, much larger volumes can be fixed in group purchases, which reduces costs and creates economies of scale. In other words, buying through the E-catalogue is simple and inexpensive!

The BRIC is delighted with these figures, which confirm its pooling strategy in order to ensure efficient IT management for the entire region.
