This practical step-by-step toolkit for implementing gender-responsive public procurement (GRPP) in the EU is designed for contracting authorities at national, regional and local level, including EU institutions, bodies and agencies.

It supports public sector buyers in advancing gender equality through the use of GRPP. It is also designed to be useful to policymakers and practi­tioners working towards gender equality and gender mainstreaming, at both the EU and the national levels.

The toolkit serves as a practical guide on how to incorporate gender equality and apply GRPP across the different stages of the procurement cycle. For each step of the procurement process, each target group can access a variety of tools, with real-life exam­ples given on how GRPP is applied and how the tools can be used.
