Today's society has a tendency to consume Information and the Web, as one of the most significant technologies of our times, represents the main channel to access it. As a result of this, one can perceive that the Web, and the inherent websites, must be accessible to all, in order to maintain the imperative social equality [1-3]. After the creation of several legislations by several European organism towards the regulation of public procurement, a need for e-procurement platform arisen. With this, a new set of concerns with accessibility and usability features also grew, mainly due to the obligations created by the published regulations. In order to connect its e-procurement plataform to European PEPPOL program and improve the quality and Web accessibility and usability compliance levels, ANO alongside with UTAD created a project where both institutions collaborate towards reaching the referred goals. Given the complexity of anoGov/PEPPOL project, a work model had to be planned and implemented, in order for the both ANO and UTAD could perform their inherent activities in a more efficient manner.
