After delivering the report of targeted improvements from the demand side, having analysed the market situation, as well as drafting the roadmap for improvement on functional requirements, the next step in the methodology of preparation activities for the procurement implementation is to carry out a feasibility plan to uptake a collaborative PPI and to reduce risks associated with the implementation of PPI. It includes key aspects such as financial modelling, legal framework, and risk reduction strategy.

Preliminary Contract and financial assessment model: this guide-template of contract model identifies and explains essential clauses that have to be part of the final tenders of Mancomunidad del Sur (Spain) and Zagreb City Holding (Croatia) if they want to buy innovative solutions that are ready to be marketed.

Common risk management strategy: this report provides an overall vision of risk management in public procurement of innovation, a brief description of the main types of risks that can be faced in these procedures and, finally, a risk management strategy in the PPI4Waste project.

Training on PPI: as part of the PPI4waste project, a series of national training workshops are organised to help building capacity in public procurement of innovation and show how this can be applied within the municipal waste sector. Some training material is available to support the implementation of similar training activities in other territories.
