Abstract: This report presents the main output of the Work Package 3, titled ‘Development of the framework models for sustainable procurement and catering services’. The work done here is part of the project ‘Innovative Strategies for Public Catering: Sustainability Toolkit across Baltic Sea Region’ (StratKIT, 2019-2021,, financed via Interreg BSR programme). The framework model shows how Public Procurement and Catering Service (PPCS) provision depend on specific country-based legal and market contexts while administered by public authorities and operating as a bundle of activity centres aka domains. For analytic and communicative purposes, the framework model appears as a tree shaped infographic (tree model), presented in its generic form in the cover image. The tree model depicts each country’s sustainability dynamics which are collated into one BSR infographic, the BSR dynamic sustainability model. This report leans on public and organizational as well as personal data and gives hands-on ideas of customized developments in the sector. Furthermore, this report includes the outcome of BSR level stakeholders’ workshops conducted in late November and early December 2020. The local StratKIT PPCS cases often represent the flagship developments or those aiming at increased sustainability within their countries. The ensemble of this report consists of six chapters presenting the societal role of the PPCS sector, addressed by sustainability visions, issues and orientations in StratKIT countries and as an aggregate, the BSR dynamic sustainability model entailing its networks and innovations. The authors would like to thank Anna Post (University of Gothenburg, Sweden), for her valuable contribution regarding Sweden. Finally, the authors greatly appreciate the essential input of the PPCS providers in StratKIT countries, whether Project Partners (PPs), Associated Organizations (AOs) or voluntary collaborators promoting their sustainability interests for the benefit of all.
