  • Public policy and procurement strategy (e.g. group purchasing and cross-border coordinated purchases)
  • Public-private partnerships
  • Vendor selection criteria
  • Use of PfI and PCP for the development of cures, apps and organizational innovations
  • Innovative initiatives, practices, procedures and organisation models of public procurement in the
  • health sector, including the procurement of medicinal products, medical devices and services
  • How to find alternative capacity and suppliers quickly under supply capacity constraints (i.e. so called reverse marketing approach in times of crisis)
  • How risk management needs to change in the future

The Special Issue welcomes empirical research built on either primary survey data or secondary data, and case studies providing examples of how to optimize public purchasing processes. We also welcome conceptual papers (e.g. critiques of existing theories/ frameworks which may not prove relevant/useful in times of crisis).
