Pilot Procurements

CircularPP will deliver 5-8 circular public procurements based on improved competences from the capacity building activities and best practices within the BSR area. The tenders will be coordinated and managed by partner cities supported by mentors according to the following steps:
1) Pre-procurement stage – includes a definition of the needs, defining the needs, early marked engagement activities, publication of preliminary information and preparation of procurement documents.

2) Procurement Stage – delivering the different procurement procedures, awarding the contracts and consulting the market if necessary. Here lies a transnational value as all municipalities involved in the pilots will cooperate among each other.

An evaluation of the tender processes will be conducted with a report about the main lessons learned.
