State eBay is gradually growing. Almost 3,000 transactions are completed every month


The e-market place system went live in February 2015. The number of trading entities is growing every month and their average number of transactions is close to 3,000 per month. Stanislav Čekovský, CEO of ANASOFT, was the guest of Richard Kvasňovský on the TV.TABLET program EKONOMIKA Tu a Teraz (Economy Here and Now).  ANASOFT, as a member of the consortium along with Slovak Telekom and the Press Agency of the Slovak Republic, supplied the Ministry of Interior of the SR with the Electronic Contracting System (ECS) and the electronic (e-)market place is its part.

In addition to the e-marketplace, there are two other tools: the Dynamic Procurement System, whose role is to ensure that as many suppliers as possible can participate in public tenders, and the Electronic Support of Processes, i.e., the provision of information, explanations and the publicizing of good practices.

More than half of the trades which take place in the e-market place have a value of up to 1,000 Euro. Companies trading here most frequently procure goods. In terms of volume, the most transactions have a value of up to 1,000 Euro. The total volumes contracted in the e-market place comprise approximately 16 - 17 million Euro per month. However, Stanislav Čekovský refuted the rumors about the Consortium getting a fee from each transaction.

The following entities are obliged to make purchases via the e-market place as the first part of the Electronic Contracting System (ECS): the state, municipalities, upper-tier territorial units and organizations established by them or related to them through property, if the value of the goods, services or construction work exceeds 1,000 Euro and comprises a sum of 134,000 Euro in the case of the state or 207,000 Euro in the case of other procurers. The upper financial limit for construction work is 5,186,000 Euro.
