The BII workshop welcomes the European Commission Directive on electronic invoicing in public procurement (2014/55/EU) , and supports the objective of the Directive to remove market access barriers in cross border public procurement.
As one of its key measures to increase the uptake of electronic invoicing in the European market, the proposed directive calls for the establishment of a European Standard (EN) for a Semantic Data Model for a European Core Invoice.
The BII workshop has a number of deliverables that are relevant for e-Invoicing in public procurement and the proposed initiative to develop a European Standard (EN) for a Semantic Data Model for a European Core Invoice. These deliverables are relevant not only for the Semantic data Model itself, but also for the methodology relevant for it development and adoption.
|CWA16558 Annex BBII Guideline; Capturing Of Business Requirements||Describes a methodology for how to identify and describe business requirements.This deliverable is currently under review and revision in CEN WS/BII3.|
|CWA16558 Annex CBII Guideline; Conformance And Customizations||Describes a methodology for how to adopt and make use of the BII Profiles in a specific business context, while still preserving interoperability.This deliverable is scheduled for review and revision in CEN WS/BII3.|
|CWA16562 Annex BBII Profile 04; Invoice Only||This profile describes a process comprising only a supplier initiated electronic Invoice. It is intended to support use cases where the invoicing is electronic, but where automation of matching it to other documents is not required.The Invoice is a self-contained document with respect to commercial and fiscal requirements.It is not a primary objective of this profile to facilitate automatic order matching and/or cost allocation; the profile assumes limited or no procurement data content and limited or no aligned and synchronized identifiers in the system to match the transaction.This profile may cover Invoice factoring arrangements but is not designed for self-billing.The profile includes a semantic information requirement model for the invoice transaction.|
|CWA 16562 – Annex CBII Profile 05; Billing||This profile describes a process comprising an electronic Invoice and, potentially, an electronic Credit Note, or just an electronic Credit Note. It is intended for situations where invoicing is electronic but where matching of the Invoice to other electronic documents may not be practical. The Invoice and Credit Note are self-contained documents with respect to commercial and fiscal requirements.Billing anomalies are notified externally and then resolved by the issuing of a Credit Note and/or a Corrective Invoice. This profile is also used when a Credit Note needs to be exchanged for other reasons than for correcting an Invoice.It is not a primary objective of this profile to facilitate automatic Order-Invoice matching and/or cost allocation; the profile assumes limited or no procurement data content and limited or no aligned or synchronized identifiers in the system to match the transaction.The Invoice may be expressed as text rather than identifiers and codes e.g. the Invoice may contain items (goods or services) with item identifiers as well as items with free text description.This profile may cover Invoice factoring arrangements. This profile can be used with little or no integration to ERP systems.The profile includes semantic information requirement models for the invoice and credit note transactions.|
