Quantifying the implementation of green public procurement in the Metropolitan City of Rome (Capital) to assess the achievement of the objectives set by the Act
The system provides for the interaction between the procurement managers, the heads of Department IV (GPP Coordination Group) and accounting managers.
The responsible officials must insert the environmental criteria in the procurement procedures for the goods, services and works that fall within the product categories identified as priorities by the Action Plan.
The heads of Department IV use the data reported on the internal information system (SID) to carry out a periodic reporting of GPP implementation and carry out random checks in order to verify that the environmental criteria are used correctly and that the information on the green public procurement is entered correctly.
They have visibility of GPP attachments on the SID and can change the information entered by procurement managers. They provide technical support for the inclusion of environmental criteria in the tender documentation.
Accounting managers verify that the process of entering information on SID by procurement managers is correct and that the documentation included contains the relevant regulatory references.
Over the years the system has been applied and also tested in order to improve its effectiveness, achieving a shared system between the departments involved in the procurement phases.
