Abstract
With the aim of exploring improvement of technology procurement efforts and learning about standard-setting challenges in that context, this study takes up the Swedish implementation of cooperative procurement as an exploratory case. With key interviews, the author gleans the details of the case as implemented over more than a decade and lessons learned in that period. An elaborate explanation appears of the rationale behind the dual-level requirements now commonly used in procurements. Further, the case is used as an instrument to characterise some other prevalent approaches to technology procurement in relative terms, followed by a gap analysis assisted by a graphical representation on a four-dimensional frame. The analysis reveals the... (More)

The analysis reveals the distance to the ideal implementation and aids the deduction of remedial policy supplements. One such supplementing instrument is proposed. (Less)
