You are a public authority and have recently implemented procurements and/or related initiatives with remarkable innovation elements, or economic, environmental and social impacts? You want your work to be widely recognised? Then submit your candidacy for the 2021 edition of the Procura+ Awards, an initiative of ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability in cooperation with the EU-funded Procure2Innovate project. The application period is still open until 31 March 2021. The awards are divided in four categories: Innovation Procurement of the Year, Outstanding Innovation Procurement in ICT, Sustainable Procurement of the Year, and Procurement Initiative of the Year.

Winning a Procura+ Award can be an excellent way to prove your commitment to innovation and sustainability, and to let others know about it. Participants in previous editions highlighted that taking part in the Procura+ Awards helped them to benchmark themselves, get recognition, and advocate for pushing for more sustainable and innovation criteria in their tenders. Read about the 2020 Procura+ Awards winners and runners up here.

The awarded public authorities will receive a unique trophy and have the right to promote themselves with the award title. The rewarded procurement activities will be widely disseminated using a variety of ICLEI publications and channels, as well as other channels, platforms and media outlets.
