In 2020, the iProcureNet project conducted an online survey among European public procurers. The aim of the survey was to learn more about existing (cross-border) joint public procurement initiatives throughout Europe, to collect examples and to identify good practices and pitfalls to be avoided.
The survey was run among all sectors of procurement, assuming that insights into obstacles and good practices in other sectors can feed into iProcureNet’s study of the security sector.
An overall of 41 responses from 14 countries (Germany, Ireland, Romania, Turkey, Estonia, France, Switzerland, the US, Portugal, Italy, Finland, Greece, Slovakia, and one unspecified) was obtained.
