It is important that any procurement is sustainable and open, and that people trust that the government is spending money well and implementing effective policies. These were the conclusions at Open and Sustainable Procurement in Europe, an event held in Tirana on 15 and 16 June 2023.

As many as five representatives of the Coalition actively participated in the conference co-organised by the Albanian Public Procurement Commission, the Open Contracting Partnership and the Dutch and Italian governments.

During the two days, we talked about the main trends in sustainable public procurement. The focus was on the practical side of the implementation. Much space was devoted to technology. Participants learned more about Public Procurement Data Spaces and how to monitor corruption risks. Practitioners from contracting authorities shared their experiences of implementing sustainable procurement. And they are quite diverse, as the conference was attended by participants from more than 20 European countries.

Materials and recordings of some of the sessions can be found here.
