French public procurement award recognises exemplary purchasing policies

6 October 2015

The French Government is inviting applications for a public procurement award that recognises the best initiatives in the field of public procurement in France. Now in its eighth year, the award is separated into two categories: best procurement initiative, and most sustainable public procurement.

Each category has three sub-categories that indicate at which level the public procurement has been carried out: state public services, territorial public services, and public hospital. The deadline for applications is 20 October 2015, with the award ceremony set to take place in Porte de Versailles, Paris on 19 November. Each application will be examined by an esteemed panel of procurement experts, including former award winners.

Over €100 billion is spent each year in France by the government, meaning that public procurers have significant purchasing power to shift the market towards sustainable and socially beneficial ways of working. The French government aims to use the power of procurement to help meet its diverse policy objectives.
