Roadmap of bio-based procurement instruments

The scheme shows a general roadmap of the procurement process. Each phase of the process requires different activities, frameworks, and guidance. Various instruments that exist in the context of public procurement of innovation are especially helpful when it comes to procuring bio-based products and services. An inventory was made of the available instruments for procurers. These instruments were grouped on the basis of four different phases that were distinguished as a roadmap towards the integration of bio-based products and services into public procurement:

Phase 1: Enabling procurement of bio-based products and services

Phase 2: Pre-procurement and preparation of tenders

Phase 3: Procurement procedures

Phase 4: Post-procurement stage
