This case deals with issues of evaluation and adoption of Internet technologies in a U.S. federal government context and describes in detail a pilot project to explore the feasibility of the adoption of an application service provider solution for the procurement of several federal agencies support determined with a variety of different legacy transaction systems. The pilot of the Internet Payment Platform (IPP) of the eMoney group from the United States Treasury Financial Management Service involved three federal agencies and subsets of their suppliers. Participants saw many benefits from the use of the IPP, but agreed that for full operation, it had to be changed to better serve the public procurement context. The project manager is weighing the pros and cons of conducting further pilot test with the same commercial software as before, or the preservation and adaptation of a new commercial package or building a new system from scratch.
