Public procurement offers an enormous potential market for innovative products and services. Used strategically, it can help governments boost innovation at both the national and local level and ultimately improve productivity and inclusiveness. Based on good practices in OECD and partner countries, this report analyses the state of play of procurement for innovation and provides a flexible framework focusing on 9 areas to promote it.




The National Development Plan (2014-18) specifies procurement innovation as a cross-cutting strategy targeted to generate a higher economic and social value to enhance the conditions for the development of business activities. Procurement innovation is also conceived to provide the demand of good and services for specific needs in a more efficient way through innovation. This part of the governance strategy will be complemented with accompaniment services for the SMEs in the implementation of the necessary processes and investments to achieve higher quality standards.
