PUBLIC PROCUREMENT ASSESSMENT IN THE HEALTHCARE SECTOR Procure’s goal is to make current healthcare procurement practices more resilient and efficient across the European Union, and to ensure that public health and care procurement systems can respond to future emergency crises and pandemics. 

PROCURE is an EU Project that brings together 26 partners from 13 EU countries, including public and private organisations (public buyers, central purchasing bodies, regional health agencies, alliance of private hospitals, vendors, etc.) and other supporting organisations involved in healthcare public procurement, to undertake an assessment of public procurement practices to ensure they are managed effectively and efficiently.

The PROCURE assessment will focus on the impact the COVID-19 pandemic had on procurement organisations and practices from the 13 participating EU Member Sites. By means of comparison with the procurement processes prior to the pandemic, PROCURE will determine what changed and identify new strategies, action plans and policies that have been incorporated into public procurement as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
