Public procurement is a negotiating area gaining in importance at both the multilateral and the bilateral level. The size of procurement spending stands at double-digit percentage points of GDP in most developed economies. However, despite the size and importance of these markets, the factual information available to trade negotiators remains scarce. Although public procurement patterns can be derived from traditional national accounts statistics, these figures fall short of capturing the international dimension of public procurement. This chapter puts forward a basic conceptual framework for data collection on public procurement that would best serve the future negotiating agenda in this area.

Keywords:   public procurement, procurement spending, patterns, data collection, future negotiating agenda
