It’s time again for the Procura+ awards which recognise sustainable and innovative public procurements which lead to real improvements in public goods, services, processes and infrastructure. They are co-ordinated by ICLEI, in co-operation with the EU-funded Procure2Innovate project. Call for applications is now open from public authorities that have procured sustainably and innovatively within the last two years. This year launches the new Procurement Initiative of the Year award, recognising effective actions that involve strategies, tools or projects. More information on PPI and on the Procura+ website. And you can read about previous finalists and winners on our site here and here.
