The International Research Study of Public Procurement (IRSPP) is a multi-national research study of Public Procurement practices and policies which develops international comparative procurement benchmarks and enhances the body of knowledge in government procurement.
IRSPP is a prestigious group of eminent procurement executives and researchers from centres of excellence in procurement around the world who are endeavoring to develop the procurement body of knowledge and the procurement profession.
IRSPP is not a conference; it is an intensive workshop with a carefully selected number of senior practitioners in public procurement. Every two years we assemble senior practitioners (CPO, head of department) from countries and international organizations to exchange ideas and visions by senior practitioners.
Details of the countries and organisations which have participated in IRSPP meetings can be found HERE.
The forthcoming meeting, IRSPP 8 will take place 8-11 September 2019 in Cardiff, Wales, UK. Senior public procurement practitioners from across the globe will share rich case study insights and discuss the procurement of innovation, the main challenges and benefits. https://irspp.wordpress.com/irspp-8-2019-procurement-of-innovation/
