Guidance on innovation and public procurement

Public procurement is a key driver for innovation in the local economy.

Innovation and public procurement

Public procurement has the potential to drive forward innovation in the local economy - particularly in the manufacturing and construction industries - and more generally in relation to sustainable development.

The Cabinet Office Efficiency and Reform Group have published three helpful guidance documents to help public sector officials embed innovation into public procurement.  

The documents are helpful for understanding the benefits of seeking and procuring innovative solutions, and provide detailed examples of steps to be taken throughout the procurement process.
