Priceless Procurement: Valuing what matters most

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


How do we value priceless societal outcomes in public procurement?
As the non-financial aspects of human and planetary health rise in strategic importance, Hamilton argues that in many public service categories, it is necessary to remove price from the evaluation criteria to stimuate public sector innovation and foster cross-sector collaborations; Priceless Procurement creates room in the system to award contracts to bids generating the most social value within the pre-defined publicly available funds.
