Links I Liked [Public Procurement]

1. Osborne-Clark asks for a change in how public procurement is carried out, particularly on innovation.

2. UK Government will impose 'Cyber Essentials' certificate to all its contractors handling sensitive data. "...Or equivalent" I would say until 2019.

3. Spanish authorities ask for information about economic operators hired by Catalan Government to prepare for secession (Spanish only).

4. Bidders will ‘say everything’ to win foreign aid contracts. Only foreign aid contracts? Really? And note what smaller suppliers have to say about framework agreements...

5. Update on Trump's "Buy American" policy.
