The cases address a diverse selection of products and services, encompass all phases of the public procurement process, and include a broad range of public buyers, ranging from local and national governments, to public hospitals.

The report also shows that SRPP is possible in a wide array of sectors, including construction, food and catering, furniture, gardening services, healthcare, ICT, social services, transport, mobility, and waste.
