Nuove forme di procurement per la Difesa


This research is aimed at assessing the cost effectiveness, in terms of procurement and processing expenses, of the use of outsourcing, advanced procurement models and innovative forms of contracting on the part of the defence administration. Analysis centres on Italian experiments with innovation in the field of military procurement, at the technical level, through the use of e-procurement instruments, and at the contractual level, through recourse to outsourcing, leasing and intra-governmental collaboration. Finally, the possibility of experimenting with forms of collaboration between the public and the private sector (Private Finance Initiative) for the financing of procurement by the defence administration is assessed on the basis of the most recent international experience.
