Public Procurement As Secondary Policy : Axioms and Perspectives (Hardcover) (Max Rolfstam)
About this item
Recent academic thought reflects an ambition to inform policymakers’ promotion of the use of public procurement as a means to stimulate innovation. This debate has consisted of more operational themes as for instance the role of procurement law and to what extent there prevail legal barriers when public procurement is to be used as a leaver for innovation; how to overcome public risk averseness, the importance of interacting with suppliers and formulating demand for innovation, etc.
The aim of this excellent new work is to provide an extended analysis of public procurement used as an innovation policy instrument. It will be of interest to both academics and policy makers in the fields of public management, public administration and policy and related disciplines.
