Good Practices and Strategies

image of Public Procurement for Innovation

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.




As part of the Public Service Reform Plan, the government is reforming the public procurement process to deliver greater value for money through increased use of common procurement frameworks, centralised purchasing, increased professionalism and more innovative use of technology. The government has established an Office of Government Procurement (OGP) as an independent body under the aegis of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform to drive a new consolidated and integrated approach to public procurement.
