The implementation of e-Government in public administration allows the development of more service channels with its suppliers and relationships with its citizens, promoting a safe service and securing the confidentiality of information. Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is a new way of developing systems that promotes a shift from writing software to assembling and integrating services. By adopting an SOA approach and implementing it using supporting technologies, companies can build flexible systems that implement changing business processes quickly, and make extensive use of reusable components. In this paper we describe the approach we followed in adopting an SOA in an autarchy with regard to the implementation of a process of public procurement integrated with the existing systems. We present the steps followed, the difficulties and the advantages of this integration, pointing out the facilitator role of Web services in the design and implementation of the Service.
