EFICIA is now referenced via SCC by the UGAP and its building energy management solution is available in the UGAP multi-publisher catalog.
This referencing is a new step in EFICIA’s development strategy and its ambitions to continue its expansion and increase its network of partners.
What is UGAP?
UGAP is a public industrial and commercial establishment (EPIC) placed under the supervision of two ministries (Economy and National Education). UGAP is a French public purchasing center and is the main organization to perform this function.
Because of its status as a central purchasing agency and because it operates on a purchase-for-resale basis, UGAP allows its contract holders to address the entire public procurement market through the signature of a single contract and to benefit from a reduction in their administrative, commercial and financial costs.
Why go through UGAP for a public contract
Going through the central purchasing office allows you to benefit from certain advantages:
Simplification of public procurement: UGAP takes care of the execution of orders and the relationship with suppliers, thus reducing the costs of procedures, deployment and management.
Legal security: the regulations relating to public procurement are respected
An immediate purchase: the public purchaser is exempt from advertising and competitive bidding procedures, regardless of the amount of the purchase
Contracts are notified
The central purchasing office provides a tool for making estimates and orders, and for tracking them online
