Built for purpose: Towards a more efficient and effective public procurement system

This chapter is centred on the Principle on efficiency, which calls upon Adherents to implement sound technical processes to satisfy customer needs efficiently. The analysis focuses on how Adherents are emphasising value for money through centralisation processes such as collaborative procurement tools like framework agreements. The uptake of other efficiency tools such as e-catalogues and e-auctions is also analysed. This chapter included an assessment of the overall digital transformation undertaken by Adherents, in order to improve procurement procedures through monitoring, forecasting and simplifying procurement procedures.
