Procurement of Innovation platform


Procurement Transformation Institute

Ireland’s newly created competence centre for innovation procurement is the Procurement Transformation Institute (PTI). Established by two private entities, Arvo and iDDea, PTI is located in Cork. PTI seeks to increase the awareness of innovation procurement across Ireland – among procurers, policy makers and innovative suppliers.

PTI as a non-for-profit institution provides knowledge and procurement support for the public and private sector, while the founders and their strategic partners are focused on growing a community of buyers and sellers to promote and accelerate innovation procurement in Ireland and Europe. Enabling engagement across various local, regional and national public procurement contracting agencies and stimulating innovative partnerships with the Irish supply base, and in particular small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), PTI is driving the modernisation of public procurement in Ireland through competency development plans and peer-to-peer learning for procurers – and suppliers – on innovation procurement.
