Abstract
The concept of e-procurement has many different meanings ranging from shopping on the
internet (through reverse auction) to collaborative initiatives taking place in virtual
meetings. There are many forms of e-procurement that can be found in the literature. In this
paper we define the most important forms of e-procurement. Next, we present the main
barriers of implementing an e-procurement found in the literature. Furthermore, we present
a matrix with the main barriers of e-procurement classified in four main categories. Finally,
we elaborated for managers some guidelines in order to overcome the barriers of
implementing e-procurement.
Keywords: e-procurement, purchasing management, barriers.
