Procura+ Awards - Rewarding innovative procurement

The winners of the Procura+ Awards have strong potential for replication and scaling up and are an excellent source of recognition and inspiration for any public authority using using sustainable and innovation procurement instruments to purchase cutting edge solutions.

Applications to the Procura+ Awards 2021 are now open. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2021.
