Until recently, Danish policy interest in public procurement has mainly
been driven by efficiency and cost-effectiveness concerns. Public-procurement
policies have in general focused on the utilisation of economies of scale as a Means of achieving lower prices on goods and services. Attempts to develop mandatory procurement systems have also been gradually developing, while the focus on innovation has been relatively modest in Danish procurement policies until recently. This picture is currently changing, as several initiatives emphasising
public procurement as a means of stimulating innovation have been launched.
Whether this gradual change of focus in Danish procurement policies will make a
deep and lasting impact on the role of public procurement as a driver for innovationis, however, yet an open question.
