Hello Procurement Forum members,
You might have noticed some changes when logging in this morning. We made some small adjustments to make using the Forum more intuitive.
1. If you look up to your right you'll see two icons allowing you to change the view in the public space - either collapsed to get a quick overview or expanded if you want to start reading straight away.
2. Commenting on posts is now easier. You can do so right under every post without any further clicks. Give it a try!

All the best,

In Ihobe, the Environment Agency of the Basque Government, are working in the definition of the next Green Public Procurement Program that will replace the previous one in force between 2011-2014.
The new GPP Program will broaden its scope to mobilise all public administrations in the regions, not only the central government like the former one, and to include measures to embed GPP in the core of public organisations and make it more efficient.
