detailed verification and monitoring systems, after having briefly explained the overall approach of the municipality.

Reference tool on Supply Chain Social Performance Management Systems
The GSCP Reference tool on supply chain Social Performance Management Systems (SPMS) has been developed by and for buying organisations (retailers and manufacturers) to support them in monitoring and improving social compliance
performance in the whole supply chain.
The Reference tool is based on best existing practices, common approaches and shared standards, and is designed to reflect and be aligned with relevant international standards and in particular with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. It can be used either to provide a general framework for an organisation wishing to create a SPMS, or as a benchmark for an organisation seeking to improve or develop an established SPMS.

EU GPP case study: Innovative Smart Energy and Intelligent Mobility Solutions
In September 2010, a cross-border project was launched to promote the procurement of innovation in Italy and France. Partners in the Alcotra Innovation project identified a common need for new approaches to i) smart energy systems and ii) intelligent mobility. Issues surrounding the intermittency of renewable energy sources and non-simultaneous energy generation and consumption were chosen as target areas for innovative solutions within smart energy systems. A parallel objective was to tackle issues related to traffic. Specific aims included finding intelligent ways of monitoring poor road conditions and facilitating sustainable travel. The Pre-Commercial Public Procurement which sought to meet these objectives stipulated the use of the Living Labs method, meaning that prototypes must be tested in real life scenarios by end users on their own premises. In June 2012, the contract was awarded to 2 economic operators to explore smart energy solutions, along with 3 consortia to work on the area of intelligent mobility.
