Strategic uses of public procurement to achieve broader policy outcomes

This chapter describes the significant role that public procurement can have in leveraging secondary policy objectives. It assesses the extent to which Adherents are balancing the pursuit of such secondary policy objectives against the primary procurement objective of achieving value for money. The analysis focuses on the trade-offs that Adherents are making throughout the procurement lifecycle to realise the desired outcomes from the application of broad strategic policy objective. The chapter includes an assessment on the existence of strategies on Green public procurement, innovation goods and services, support to small-to-medium enterprises (SMES), responsible business conduct, and women owned enterprises.
