Procurer training, 12 June, Ljubljana (Slovenia)

The first training for public procurers was organized by Umanotera in Ljubljana on 12 June and 6 applicants attended it. The training has been set as fairly interactive course which required partaking from all participants through the day. The training has been held by Vida Ogorelec and Alenka Burja from Umanotera and Matjaž Uhan from Ministry of the Finance.

After a short presentation of the project GPP 2020, the first morning session started with the SWOT analysis about the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the mandatory regulation on GPP (that came into force in 2012). Participants gave valuable insights on the positive and negative aspects of the implementation of this peace of Slovene regulation. Afterwards, one PPT presentation has been considered anyway that explain in depth the EU GPP policy and GPP criteria development, its benefits, relations to other policies etc. The next large part was dedicated to the mapping of the environmental impacts of three products groups: paper, vehicles and buildings that provoked rather considerable debate. The whole afternoon session has been devoted to work in groups on two already executed tenders; one on IT equipment and the other on air conditioners. And finally, during the event only organic food and drinks has been served.

Attendees evaluated the training with the highest marks in all aspects.
