Good practices on public procurement

COCOREADO brings together national and local public authorities across the EU to share their experiences with specifying tender requirements for sustainable public procurement of food.

Collaboration between procurement officers, kitchens, and actors of short supply systems is crucial for a successful transformation of food supply systems. 

A set of four criteria is used to assess whether a case can exemplify good sustainable public procurement, including: I. Value of the public contract II. Price-Quality, III. Clearly described sustainability criteria and IV. Contract management measurement.

COCOREADO has collected good examples of public procurement practice in Europe to derive common solutions that can be implemented in future sustainable public procurements.
