The European Commission has begun to measure procurement performance in countries belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA). Performance is understood in terms of practices designed to maximize value for money (VfM). This paper reports on the performance measurement system currently in use and what the European Commission’s own data tells us about contemporary procurement practices in EEA countries. It explains the methodology devised by the European Commission to operationalize and measure procurement performance at country level. It then reveals which European countries are above average, average or below average in the performance assessment. There follows some discussion on progress made to date in making public procurement more effective across the EEA. The paper alights on priorities for the future.
