More information

Public procurement can play a key role in strategic governance, ensuring service delivery that achieves value for money and generates benefits not only for the organisation, but also for the environment, society and the economy. By using procurement strategically organisations can ensure that their purchasing reflects broader goals, for example procurement can steer new developments such as AI and digitalisation, act as a lever for innovation, new technologies and provides access to markets for SMEs, start-ups and social enterprises. Local issues, such as employment generation, working conditions, and the marginalisation of certain groups can be addressed through procurement. It can also be used to address global issues such as child labour and fair trade.

The Procura+ conferences look at the role of procurement in AI; access to markets for SMEs, start-ups and social enterprises; deep tech; digitalisation; e-Procurement; life cycle costing; monitoring; professionalisation; smart cities; social responsibility and supply chain management. Procura+ 2024 will present good practices and approaches for strategic procurement across thematic areas, key product and service sectors such as biodiversity, buildings; construction, energy, food and catering; ICT; mobility and textiles.
