Project idea title Sustainable Balkan-Mediterranean Green Public Procurement through trained net-workers
Specific problem to be addressed Green Public Procurement is increasingly used by authoroties to advance energy savings. However, few public organizations in the Balkan-Med area use networking to purchase ‘green’. There is insufficient information about the benefits of green procurement and the phobia that through the inclusion of Environmental criteria competitive issues arise. In most tenders, the technical evaluation is based only on the Technical specifications without taking into account the total lifetime cost.
Main project activities planned Our proposal improves the public administration skills in implementing GPP with: Good GPP Practices in a practical Guide linked to the needs of the different purchasing public organisations; establishment of Balkan-Med GPP Network of trained net-workers, supported by multiple e-platform with sections about Good Practices, GPP experts and local actors database, training modules and additional source and contact information.
Expected outputs and results After surveying among the participating countries with the help of the project partners the project will issue a Guide with Good GPP Practices presenting in detail how the administration in the partner countries develops and implements in best way GPP purchases. Trainings, round tables and multiply e-platform with blended learning tool, databases of good practices and net-workers, etc. will enable the Network establishment and synergies among the administration.
State you area of expertise/ interest We are searching for project partners – public bodies which purchases are partially or fully funded by the state - local and regional authorities or group of bodies, umbrella organizations and Universities or their departments with focus on green procurement and environment protection and other stakeholders interested in environmental legislation content and delivery. CCI Vratsa is also a reliable partner in the BMP both Priority Axes.
