1. Understanding Local Authority eProcurement Developments. A Pragmatic guide for SMEs
2. Sustainable eProcurement with SMEs. A Guide for Local Authorities.
In addition, two small pocket guides have been developed for use by SMEs on the subjects of Sustainable Procurement and Understanding Local Authority eProcurement Developments. Although this guide takes a comprehensive look at sustainable eProcurement, it is particularly focused on the implementation of sustainability in procurement initiated by LAs. From this perspective it highlights possibilities for LAs to involve local SMEs.
To structure this guide, use has been made of a procurement model that is based on Van Weele (2005), which has been augmented to explicitly deal with sustainability.
