Description

The procurement landscape

Irish Government Procurement represents over €17 billion annually of public money with 94% of public spending remaining in Ireland and 54% being spent with SMEs.

The Programme for Government 2020 commits to ensuring strong value-for-money for the taxpayer whilst seeking to minimise the environmental impact and optimise the community benefits. It commits to the development and implementation of a sustainable procurement policy, updating all frameworks in line with green procurement practice, and mandating the inclusion of green criteria in all procurements using public funds.

The Climate Action Plan 2019 requires every public body to have a climate mandate, a key element of that is using public procurement to deliver change. Ireland’s public sector is a in position of significant influence to stimulate the provision of more resource-efficient, less polluting goods, services and works within the marketplace. Building upon these actions, the 2021 Plan contains additional commitments on green public procurement including the update of all procurement frameworks in line with green procurement practice by 2023.

The recent National Development Plan 2021-2030 is the largest ever delivered in the history of the State with €165 billion set to be invested in infrastructure projects. It has a particular focus on housing, climate, transport and healthcare projects for the decade ahead.

The Public Procurement Conference 2022 will once again bring together key stakeholders from across the Irish procurement sector to discuss the latest developments and their implications for procurement in your organisation.
