Definition

Gender procurement involves the introduction of gender equality requirements in public procurement, in order to use these as an instrument to advance gender equality. It is a question both of ensuring that all citizens are offered equal services, regardless of gender, but also a matter of increasing the efficiency and quality of services, since making the integration of a gender perspective a requirement encourages providers to develop and offer services that are in line with gender equality objectives.
