Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Horizonal collaborative public procurement is where two or more public organisations collaborate to perform a procurement activity. A conceptual framework of 4 pillars is provided relating the objectives of collaborative public procurement to different forms and activities of CPP, to examine impact on performance of CPP. Barriers and enablers to CPP are also investigated. The framework is novel; prior work has focused only on specific pillars or the relationship between objectives and organizational form of CPP. The framework is tested empirically to verify the content of each pillar and test linkages between pillars.
