Summary :

This selection of good practice case studies was developed between September 2019 and March 2020. The work builds upon previous and current activities related to SRPP at European, national and local government levels.

Good practice cases were sought from public buyers across Europe and beyond, and as a result, 71 cases from 27 countries are presented in this collection, from 22 Member States plus 5 non-EU countries. They address a diverse selection of products and services, as well as encompassing all aspects and phases of public procurement (including the pre- and post-tendering phases) and a broad range of public buyers, ranging from local governments to central purchasing bodies and hospitals.

The collection is sorted according to sectors to help the reader navigate more conveniently. Good practice cases that cover more than one sector or relate to policies or processes are grouped together at the end. Sectors covered by this collection include: cleaning services; construction; food and catering services; furniture; gardening services; healthcare; information and communication technology; social services; textiles; plus transport, mobility and waste.
