OVERVIEW

SPP IN FLANDERS

The Government of Flanders has been working on SPP since 2008, when it set a target of 100% SPP by 2020 for its own public procurement. Since 2015, SPP became a part of the overall strategy on procurement of the Government of Flanders (Flemish Plan on Procurement).

SPP HIGHLIGHTS

  • Integrated Plan on Public Procurement, making SPP a part of an overall strategy
  • Minimum criteria for 9 product groups – Guidance and criteria suggestions on 17 product groups (in cooperation with the federal government and other regions)
  • Monitoring on SPP tested in one departement (Department of Environment, Nature and Energy) – implementation within contract management system (eDelta) for other departments and agencies is being prepared (implementation planned in 2018)
  • Framework agreements integrating social and environmental clauses are open for local authorities (where possible)
  • Climate plan for the Government of Flanders with focus on transport (smaller and more efficient fleet / decrease of kilometers driven) and energy use (more efficient buildings and infrastructure / increase of Green Energy use)
