EU project P3ITS recently published its handbook on "Pre-Commercial Procurement for Intelligent Transport Systems" (PCP for ITS). In simple terms, it describes in five steps the tasks to be performed before launching pre-commercial procurement for ITS. PCP is an underutilized tool for public authorities to include research services and innovation into their procurement. Its wider use would have a highly positive impact on the deployment of new ITS products and services.
