The European Institute for Gender Equality defines gender-responsive public procurement (GRPP) as ‘a gender mainstreaming tool to promote gender equality through public procurement.

GRPP is procurement that promotes gender equality through the goods, services or works being purchased.

EIGE, in its work on gender mainstreaming and in particular gender budgeting, seeks to promote gender equality in how public resources are collected and spent.

This report outlines the methodological approach for EIGE’s 2022 data collection exercise, which aimed to measure the state of play of GRPP in the EU.
