Monitoring Sustainable Public Procurement Implementation
Sustainable Public Procurement (SPP) is increasingly used by procuring entities to advance sustainable development. However, few public organizations have yet developed and implemented effective monitoring systems to measure their SPP activities (and the proportion of their procurement that can be considered sustainable or green). In addition, information about these monitoring systems is often scattered or not available externally. This report contributes to closing the gaps that exist in the field by presenting a number of outputs produced by the 10YFP Programme on SPP. These outputs include recommendations for enabling frameworks and efficient SPP monitoring systems at the organization level; recommendations for an international framework to report on SPP progress; and case studies presenting in detail how governments at different levels – and in different parts of the world – monitor their SPP programmes.
