Webinar on innovative procurement
2 October 2014, 2.30 - 3.30 pm CET (ONLINE)
For cities interested in innovation procurement, the ENIGMA project has teamed up with the European Commission and the Covenant of Mayors to organise a webinar on municipal innovation procurement. This online event aimed to highlight how new purchasing mechanisms can help your local authority innovate public services.
Public procurement represents 20% of total EU procurement, thus constituting a considerable economic force through which cities can improve their local environment and the quality of life of their citizens. Innovative procurement can decrease the cost of municipal purchasing by 20% while delivering step-changes in city systems and services. The focus of this online event was on two procedures - Public Purchase of Innovation and Pre-Commercial Procurement - which can contribute to your local efforts to improve energy efficiency and decrease carbon emissions.
The one-hour event included the following presentations:
