Procurement of innovation

Innovation is about leveraging the competitive market to entice unique and explorative ways of delivering marketable products and services that translate into commercial outcomes and business value. It provides opportunities to innovators to solve government challenges.

To support the increased focus on innovation, the City has aligned its procurement function with business economic development.

The City approaches innovation in two ways: government-led (solicited) and market-led (unsolicited).

To learn more about these approaches, please read our frequently asked questions fact sheet.
