02 Jun Asseco enabled the validation of the e-signature on the SzuKIO website
Asseco Data Systems has integrated the qualified electronic signature validation service with the SzuKIO.pl website – a search engine for public procurement decisions. The new functionality will significantly facilitate the contracting authorities and contractors to meet the obligation to verify and confirm the validity of electronically signed bid documents.
The SzuKIO website is an original search engine that allows to reach a specific fragment of any judgment of the National Appeal Chamber, the Court of Justice of the European Union or the Courts. The extensive content of the search engine database is especially useful during procedural processes related to public procurement.
From 2018, all procedures with a value exceeding the EU threshold are carried out using e-documents with a qualified electronic signature. The ordering party is responsible for checking its validity and correctness. Currently, the only provider of qualified validation of electronic signatures and qualified electronic seals in Poland is Asseco Data Systems. Thanks to the integration of the Asseco qualified service with the SzuKIO service, users can automatically, reliably and effectively confirm the validity of an electronic signature.
“Contracting authorities usually do not have the possibility to check e-signatures that raise their doubts. Without appropriate tools, the contractor is also unable to convince the contracting authority, KIO or the court that the submitted documents are correct. The qualified validation service implemented by Asseco will allow to resolve any disputes arising in this respect, as the contracting authority has evidence that is recognized by the National Appeals Chamber and courts” – said Maciej Tomaka, CEO of SzuKIO.pl
Certification can be obtained online around the clock through an automated process. The service enables an easy and quick way to obtain confirmation of the result of electronic signature validation as part of the tender procedure.
“SzuKIO gathers specialists in the field of public procurement, who deal with documents that function almost exclusively in electronic form in this area. Many of them are signed correctly, but they do not give a positive result of verification with the use of individual programs. The qualified e-signature validation service will be an invaluable tool for quickly determining the correctness of digital documents” – said Artur Miękina, Key Projects Sales Director at Asseco Data Systems.
Each subscriber of SzuKIO can use the qualified e-signature validation service without the need to order an additional service.
