Romanian Post says it has opened a public consultation on the acquisition of the necessary technical assistance to digitalize its operational and administrative processes. The consultation, submitted via the Romanian Electronic Public Procurement System (SEAP), is aimed at technology companies and is intended to identify the best solutions for the post to employ.
Per Romanian law, the procedure will take place following a fixed timescale:
– May 28- June 11 – Registration of all national and international companies that offer technical assistance services, by submitting declarations of intent to email@example.com.
– June 14, 12pm – Online conference on the digital transformation of Romanian Post, accessible at the following link: https://cnpr.webex.com/meet / conferintacnpr1.
– June 28- July 9 – Individual online debates with the participants registered in the procedure.
– July 21 – The final report of the public consultation will be submitted to SEAP.
Upon completion of the public consultation, Posta Romana says it will carry out a public procurement procedure to select a final solution. It has secured a financing agreement worth 200m lei (US$49.7m), of which 89.1m lei (US$22.1m) is allocated to digitalization, which the post states will provide the funding necessary to begin one of its largest investment programs in the last 40 years.
“With the digital transformation of business processes, correspondence, courier, financial services, etc, the Romanian Post will be able to strengthen and consolidate its position in the market and also actively participate, as in its entire history, in the vast social transformations, similar to the ones of financial inclusion and digital literacy of the Romanian population in the rural and small urban area, to which, as a vehicle, the Romanian Post fully committed itself through its own transformation,” noted Horia Grigorescu, general director of Romanian Post.
