A Dutch-language version of the Public Procurement of Innovation Guide has been released, providing Dutch procurers with the chance to benefit from the document's advice, tips and instruction in their native tongue. The guide provides an in-depth look at procuring innovation in the public sector, outlining paths to success and ways to avoid common mistakes.
The translated version is available from the PPI Platform Guidance page, along with versions in Hungarian and Spanish, as well as English. Sure to be of interest to procurers, policy makers, consultants, private companies and others who have a stake in successful PPI, the guide offers explanations of procedures, definitions and answers to common questions, a selection of case studies, and useful resources for further reading. It is written to be of use to both those starting out in the field, and those looking to improve their current processes.
The latest EU procurement directives are discussed in depth in the document, providing an easily digestible overview of legal requirements in Europe. It is hoped that through providing the guide in an array of European languages, a wider array of procurers and stakeholders will be able to put the document's recommendations into action.
