Public authorities can now submit their candidacies to the 2021 edition of the Procura+ Awards, a prestigious recognition of procurements and related initiatives with remarkable economic, environmental and social impacts, or innovation elements. The Procura+ Awards is an initiative of ICLEI, in co-operation with the EU-funded Procure2Innovate project. The application period is open until 31st March 2021.

The awarded public authorities will receive an unique trophy and have the right to promote themselves with the award title. The rewarded procurement activities will be widely endorsed using a wide variety of ICLEI publications and channels. Furthermore, a case study on it will be produced and disseminated on the Sustainable Procurement Platform and the Innovation Procurement Platform. Winners will be granted free entry and a presentation slot at the next conference organised by ICLEI.

Participants in previous editions have highlighted that participating in the Procura+ Award helped them to benchmark themselves and to gain visibility. For winners, it was an excellent way to prove their commitment to sustainability and innovation, as well as to earn internal and external recognition. 

In Haarlem, we are honoured to receive this Award and we are excited to share our experience with procurers from across Europe. Working with our suppliers and other stakeholders to achieve a better, innovative and sustainable city has been a great endeavour and we are happy to be able to share this more widely.” said Danielle de Boo, Manager of the Project- and Contract Management Department, City of Haarlem, winner of the Procurement Initiative of the Year Award, at the Award ceremony for the Procura+ Award 2020.
