This paper analyses the entry into public tenders within the EU by the Czech companies. This paper investigates which industries have the highest shares of foreign public tenders. This share is compared to the number of hired IT professionals. This paper is based on the thesis that competing in global markets requires skilled labor force in the form of IT specialist. IT specialists (outsourced or employed) can manage electronic supply chain communication and international data interchange. They can integrate systems or adapt them to global opportunities in the public sectors. The dataset is based on the data from the Information and Communication Technologies Questionnaire 2014. The statistical evaluation is based on the probability estimation and detailed summary statistics. Public tenders are a good way for companies from less developed countries because of the lower material and labor costs. The sample of firms is limited to enterprises able to provide goods and services to the public sector. Results suggest that there are differences between industries (services, trade, manufacturing) in the foreign e-procurement and the number of IT workers depend positively on the participation in foreign e-procurement.
