Traditional procurement model often involves identifying the problem, outlining a solution, and seeking out relevant service providers. Innovative Procurement is more flexible than traditional procurement because it focuses on understanding each challenge, its context, and people’s perspectives: Instead of buying a specific product or service, the local authority is given an opportunity to focus on addressing challenges rather than a predefined solution.. It encourages the thinking of the long-term value of data and the solution’s impact, and it an open-minded attitude. Despite of the uncertainty of this new process, innovative procurement helps the local government to have a greater influence on products and find solutions that are specific to solving particular challenges.
