Public Spend Forum Europe – Public Procurement Highlights from this Week

Public Spend Forum is dedicated to public sector procurement and aims to be a global community and knowledge network for improving public procurement and the public sector market. In Europe alone, we are talking about well over a trillion Euros of money from taxpayers and citizens being spent by governments and public sector bodies. Worth doing well, you might consider.

Part of the PSF site is dedicated to Europe-related issues, and that is where you will find our articles and news stories from this week, and, on this occasion, from the holiday period. It will require a one-off, quick registration to view them. Please join us – follow the links in the summaries below.

They are are structured into two sections: more general business and behavioural skills, and technical areas of expertise, which relate to the different stages of the end-to-end procurement process.

Latest Corruption Perceptions Index - Transparency International

Transparency International has published its latest annual Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI). The index ranks 180 countries and territories by their perceived levels of public sector corruption. It uses a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean. Country movements up and down the CPI ladder have been tracked over the years, and it’s not unusual for the average score to be below 50, in fact this year, that involves more than two-thirds of countries in the index. The table clearly shows where each country sits, and that is followed up with analysis.
