Abstract

Public procurement, which is a considerable part of the local demand, may have favorable effects on the national innovative capacity. But traditional public procurement model is quite far from encouraging innovative procurement. In this sense, this article mainly aims to discuss elements of a new model for public procurement which stimulates and facilitates procuring innovative goods and services. In the paper, we initially argue the importance of demand for innovation. Subsequently, we examine the public procurement process and put forth the rationales for applying innovative public procurement. Then, we compare the current point of views about the issue between EU and Turkey. At last, we propose a new model for public procurement process by considering the shortcomings of current model and conclude the paper with policy recommendations for future.
