dc.description.abstract Generally, policies dealing with public procurement, innovation or preparedness are worked on and crafted separately. However, looking ahead to and planning for potential crises Finland might face necessitates the consideration of procuring innovative solutions to challenging problems. Nevertheless, for public authorities, investment in preparedness is a balance between serving the current needs of the community, reducing disaster risk, and also looking ahead to what the future needs might be and being ready for those needs. Public authorities must deal with uncertainty and simultaneously take a long-term view, while using public money efficiently and effectively. In Finland, the National Emergency Supply Agency (NESA) collaborates with public and private organisations to facilitate preparedness activities. This type of association is a step to civil preparedness through policy intervention, such as through the use of innovation oriented public procurement. Preparedness is however everybody’s business; both public and private enterprise. The private sector can take on a more expansive role as part of civil preparedness through their own investments and in partnership with public authorities. This report is intended for those with an interest in the different aspects of public procurement, innovation, preparedness, supply chains and public-private partnerships, as well as scholars working in these areas. The challenges listed herein can be used to inform those who work with the public procurement process while the recommendations are useful for those who look to develop this space. Our investigation sought to bridge the divide between policy and existing practice, as well as how it can be improved. We brought together information from various entities, mainly from Finland, with an interest in this larger subject area. Contributions were made by subject matter experts, industry representatives, public administration officers, practitioners and scholars. We distilled the information gathered and brought to light the challenges and hindrances, and then looked ahead by offering recommendations. sv
