The fourth GreenS’ Roundtable  was celebrated in Seville, on  19 of April 2017. On the ocassion of the  beginning of Pilot processes implementation in the frame of GreenS project, we thought it was an opportunity to bring together some of those local governments which have expressed their willingness in taking part in this phase of the project, in order to lay the foundations for an effective assistance service and profit-making of the know-how and resources generated as a result of the implementation of WP5 devoted to Pilot Experimentation on GPP’s.

 

Among the attendeess, we had  technical staff working in the areas of Purchasing and procurement of the municipalities,  as well as representatives of Energy Agencies from some Provincial Goverments in Andalucía, most of them belonging to our Regional Network for Green Public Procurement, created  within GreenS project some months ago.

 

The agenda of this roundtable included a first contextualization of the project, through which we tried to explain how, after a first phase of diagnosis and identification of needs in relation to GPP on the part of local governments, the GreenS consortium has worked on the generation of a number of resources whose objective is to make easier the greening of Public Procurement processes by local administration.

 

After this contextualization, there was a time specifically devoted to explain which ones are these resources, illustrating by means of some concrete practical cases how and where within the licitations local administration can integrate GPP criteria in order to make their Public Procurement greener.

 

Representatives from local governments, provincial governments and energy agencies attending the event  also took the floor  to tell their state-of-art in relation to GPP, expressing as main handicaps the lack of political determination and the need of specific technical resources to address the drafting of a green tender.   Most of the attendees were very interested in the assistance for the drafting of electrical supply licitations, though this group is not object of GreenS’analysis.

 

Finally, FAMP and APEC encouraged the attendees to advance in the specific identification of services and products likely to be piloted with the support  of “GreenS helpdesk”, as well as in the identification of training needs in the field of GPP that could be satisfied through training activities to be included within FAMP’s Continous Training Plan, addressed specifically to the local community.
