This guide focuses upon designing Smart Public Procurement Frameworks. It should be read alongside the city stories below from around Europe demonstrating how designing smart public procurement works in practice.
Whilst a growing number of Member States, Regions and cities are developing Strategies and Action Plans around public procurement, examples of effective implementation are rare. This is largely due to the complexity of the theme of public procurement, and the significant amount of time it takes to realise change in public procurement processes, practices, and cultures.
This guide explores the key challenges to implementation of public procurement frameworks and how these challenges can be, and are being, overcome by cities across Europe:
Below is a tool to complement the guide.
Here are practical examples to illustrate the concepts.
