UK "Zanzibar" B2G eProcurement and UBL tieing the knot

The UK government has launched the enhanced "Zanzibar" eProcurement system.

The underlying business transactions and formats in XML are being aligned with the UBL 2.0 work within OASIS that is developed using the ebXML CCTS approach.

This is an import milestone on the road toward international procurement system standards alignment.

The OGCbuying.solutions (http://www.ogcbuyingsolutions.gov.uk/) proposed standard includes 14 XML business documents which are being considered by OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) for incorporation in UBL 2.0 and as such is expected to become a new standard for eCommerce over the Internet.

More on the Zanzibar system is available from the press release - click here
