KONEPS is a single window for public procurement which provides integrated bid information for businesses. In the past, bidding information was made available in gazettes and newspapers. Now, however, it is legally required to be publicized in KONEPS. The bidding information includes estimated costs, technical specifications, and evaluation criteria. KONEPS is also a single repository of vender data for the entire public organization. With just a one-time registration with KONEPS , businesses can participate in all bidding opportunities. KONEPS was developed to enable all public organizations to utilize it. Therefore, the central and local governments, as well as state-owned enterprises can easily access it by logging on to KONEPS . In particular, PPS provides one-stop service through KONEPS by linking it with external systems. For example, KONEPS has links with 191 external systems including 21 surety companies, 16 construction associations, 8 certified authorities, and others.
