Note:The OECD average values do not include data for the United States as it does not traditionally rely on public procurement of infrastructure at the Federal level.
Why is this important?
Procurement strategies based on strategic choices ensure infrastructure delivery in a way that maximises the value generated for society as a whole. For quality infrastructure investment, procurement processes should be directed towards generating broader value in terms of economic, environmental and social benefits. Procurement can also be used strategically for incentivising innovation, in particular in the transition towards low-carbon infrastructure and the adoption of digital technologies.
