Procure

Creating a good local economy through procurement
  • Governance Governance
  • Economy Economy

The aim of Procure is to explore how to harness the spending power through procurement of public / anchor institutions in the partner cities to bring about economic, social and environmental benefits for businesses and people which in turn will have a positive impact on the city and its local economy.

Over the two years, the partners will meet together (both at a European level and at a local level through local stakeholder groups) to discuss and explore a number of topics which they can then put into practice in their partner cities through the development of local partner Integrated Action Plans.

The topics to be explored include:

1)      The regulations and law at both European and national level, and what cities are able to do around innovative procurement

2)      How to analyse procurement spend and develop a procurement strategy

3)      Developing and utilising social criteria and environmental criteria in procurement

4)      How to raise awareness of, and engagement in, procurement amongst local businesses and Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs)
