To help you out the P3ITS project is releasing its PCP for ITS handbook describing all you need to know before launching a Pre-Commercial Procurement (PCP) process in the ITS sector.
When: Thursday 9 June from 14:00 to 17:30 Where: ITS European Congress Lyon (FR)
PCP is an underutilised approach to procure innovative products or services. In this regard P3ITS has engaged in a dialogue between procurers and ITS actors to investigate how it could be used for ITS deployment.
After the closing session P3ITS will organise its free final workshop to share and discuss with European ITS delegates its results consolidated in a handbook. The main objective of this handbook is to guide practitioners in the preparation of a PCP programme or process and make sure that all actors (procuring authorities civil servants consultants legal experts and suppliers) are aware of the process. The workshop will also be an opportunity for you to hear the future use of PCP in the EU presented by the European Commission’s representative.
P3ITS is a project funded by the European Commission – DG Information Society and Media.
