CALL FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
As a mean to increase the uptake of strategic public procurement, the OECD is working closely with the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO) of the European Commission in an initiative aimed at promoting the use of strategic procurement in the context of Cohesion Policy.
Indeed, in order to promote the use of strategic procurement, a project has been launched to offer practical "hands-on" support to contracting and/or managing authorities in EU Member States for strategic procurement. The lessons learned from this project will feed into guidance and tools for wider dissemination. Managing authorities and/or relevant authorities responsible for public procurement in all European Member States are invited to express by 25 May 2018 their interest in receiving targeted support on strategic procurement. The short form for the expression of interest and supporting information can be obtained by sending an email to the Public Procurement Unit of the OECD (Matthieu.Cahen@oecd.org and Paulo.Magina@oecd.org).
