In the framework of PAPIRUS project an international workshop for EU funded PPI projects, was held on 19th November 2015 in Brussels. The aim of the workshop was to exchange knowledge, experience and share best practices on PPI implementation. The participants of the workshop represented the following PPI projects:
- Public Procurement Administration to Reach Ultimate Sustainability (PAPIRUS) - the overall objective of PAPIRUS project is to promote, implement and validate innovative solutions enabling the European community to achieve sustainable construction. The project implied an introduction of a new public procurement process focused on providing materials characterized by near zero energy consumption for the repair and construction of buildings in four European locations (www.papirus-project.eu);
- The Smart Procurement European Alliance (SPEA) project focuses on improving energy efficiency in municipal buildings in order to incorporate energy saving and renewable energy to these buildings and to develop sustainable management procedures in the cities of the European Community (http://www.speaproject.eu/, www.sustainablebuildings.eu);
- Supporting public procurement of building innovative solutions (PROBIS) - general objective of the project is to promote bidding through innovative solutions aimed at increasing energy efficiency and sustainability of European public buildings (http://www.probisproject.eu/).
The last session of the event was an interactive discussion regarding barriers and challenges that each project has experienced when implementing public procurement of innovation. Below is a summary of the results from the workshop and challenges that have been discussed among the representatives of the PPI projects. We hope that these findings and lessons learned will help you to plan and implement PPI projects and minimize in time the challenges they carry.

Omsorgsbygg is launching a new procurement within the PAPIRUS project trying to put to use all the experiences from the other procurements.
– There was interest from the market and more than 30 people joined the market event in Oslo. In addition we had 15 one-to-one meetings with suppliers after the event. In the end there were very few bids and it was clear that the suppliers were not ready to deliver all the documentation we were asking. Main lesson learned is not to stop the communication with the market after the tender is launched, and to simplify everything, says project coordinator in Omsorgsbygg Lene Lad Johansen.
Now the plan is to put all the experiences and lessoned learned from all the PAPIRUS procurements and do a new tender in Oslo. All of the four procuring partners have had low interest in the tender after launching. The complexity of the documents made it time consuming to participate in the contest.
Omsorgsbygg is planning a new procurement to replace windows and insulate the façade of three kindergartens in Oslo. The process and documents will be simplified and there will be a new market event as well as a conference to address questions after the tender is out in the market.
