Abstract

Public Procurement for Innovation (PPI) is expected to leverage demand-side innovation in sectors such as transport and infrastructure. However, to make that happen, public clients must be willing to apply PPI. How does a public client of the construction industry come to choose for, develop and apply particular PPI procurement approaches? To explore the rationale for PPI from a public client's perspective, the reasoning behind a client's first application of a PPI-like procurement system is reconstructed in a case study. Assuming that the particular features of this system ultimately are related to overall strategy, two major concepts are used to guide this reconstruction: strategic alignment and procedural rationality. The results show how in this case PPI is triggered by, and across multiple levels of strategy is aligned with, ministerial strategy. An additional gain of this study is that it suggests how strategic alignment between a particular procurement system and overall organizational strategy could be achieved in a deliberate manner. The client is commonly viewed as an important driver for innovation. Observing that construction management literature on PPI is limited, the creation of an in-depth insight in a public client's rationale for PPI contributes to the further understanding of the client's role in innovation.
