Innovative Public Procurement and Health Care: Nordic Lighthouse Project
Responsible organisation
2011 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This report focuses on the use of innovative procurement in the health sector in the Nordic countries. It presents six Nordic cases demonstrating best practice within innovative procurement. The report argues that despite challenges particularly relating to navigating the legal framework, there are benefits associated with the use of innovative procurement. The use of dialogue between procurers and suppliers is highlighted as a key benefit in innovative procurement as it leads to increased knowledge of possibilities available in the market and hence better solutions. As innovative procurement practice is still relatively new across the Nordic countries, there is a need to disseminate best practices and to develop procurement guides to assist the implementation. The report has been prepared by DAMVAD.
