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 most recent IRSPP meeting took place on November 20-21, 2015 in The Hague, The Netherlands. There were 31 participants from 15 countries. The details from the 18 cases available at the meeting will be progressively updated on the IRSPP6 page.

IRSPP7 will be held on 25-27 September, 2017 in Milan, Italy.
