PPPI Service Point

In September 2012 the Austrian Federal Government adopted the Austrian Action Plan on Public Procurement Promoting Innovation (PPPI). Its aim in exploiting the large procurement volumes (about 40 billion Euro p.a. in Austria) is twofold: to encourage industry to deliver innovative goods and services on the one hand, and to supply public bodies and citizens with advanced and (eco)efficient goods and services on the other. The responsibility for the ongoing implementation of the PPPI Action Plan lies with the Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW) and the Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT).

In September 2013 a PPPI Service Point has been established within the Federal Procurement Agency (BBG). The PPPI Service Point is initiated and financed by the Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW) and the Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT). It acts as point of single contact for PPPI issues in Austria, initiates and conducts PPPI pilot projects and offers services in the fields of further education & training as well as a PPPI online platform.
