Gijón City Council
About the council
Gijón is in northern Spain and has around 300,000 inhabitants. The city has adopted a global management model, which has enabled it to implement a substantially eGovernment policy. However, within its existing model, it did not have a vertical solution for electronic tendering that was fully integrated with the municipal ERP.
The main emphasis was on achieving a comprehensive audit trail and record keeping, as well as financial and economic management.
After a detailed evaluation process, Gijón City Council decided to implement the VORTAL electronic procurrement platform as mandatory for managing all their smaller contacts, as well as the contract of 9 dependent public companies.
