The Peppol Coordinating Authority is a committee within the Peppol organisation that takes on the tasks, in particular, of technical specification within the network, server administration and overall contract management. The Peppol Coordinating Authority in turn passes on specific tasks to so-called Peppol Authorities. These are distributed throughout Europe. In Germany, the Peppol Authority is the Coordination Office for IT Standards (KoSIT). It pursues, in particular, the tasks of informing and advising companies and administration, as well as contract management in Germany. It also provides specialist and technical support and represents German interests within the umbrella organisation in Brussels.
