Replacing paper-based procedures electronically enhances the quality of services of contracting authorities and establishes a system of publication, awarding and managing contracts, which is a function of the principle of transparency. E-procurement also means faster order, shortened deadlines for submission of tenders, evaluation and awarding of the contract, thereby increasing the efficiency of the contracting authority. It also increases cost-effectiveness, as contracting authorities realize cost savings through reduction of transaction costs and the amount of waste, because they reduce paperwork and provide better control over expenditure for procurement.

Except for the overview of legal framework for e-procurement system in BiH, analysis of the portal e-procurement, this brief presents recommendations for e-procurement system improvements.
