SPP in the procurement process

As a procurer, you are responsible for the implementation of your organisation's policies in the field of sustainable public procurement (SPP). SPP is tailored to the individual circumstances of the situation. As a procurer, it is therefore important that you are fully aware of the themes your organisation wishes to emphasise and their chosen level of aspiration. You can set minimum requirements, for instance, but you can also formulate more aspirational award-based invitations to tender. 

From prescribing to inviting

As a procurer, you are expected to maintain a certain level of aspiration with regard to SPP. Your organisation may, for example, have agreed to implement minimum environmental criteria for all public procurements, or perhaps innovation is high on the agenda.
