Abstract:
Environmental protection has become an issue of global concern. Guided by the scientific outlookon development and the theory of new normal in its economic development,China has paid due attention tothe improvement of its environment,which has been listed as a key item on its policy agenda. Researchershave done a lot of substantial work on government procurement of such basic public services as elderly care,education and medical care but paid insufficient attention to the procurement of environmental productsand services. On the basis of analyzing the feasibility,necessity and contents of government procurementof services for improving our environment,we have identified a few models of government procurementthrough examining the preliminary practices carried out by some local governments. By so doing,we havefound that there are such problems with government procurement of environmental services:the products andservices are not clearly defined;the fund for the procurement is insufficient;the evaluation of the performanceof the services purchased is unsatisfactory;and the rules and laws governing the procurement are in needof improvement. Addressing these problems,we offer some policy recommendations for how to improvegovernment procurement of environmental services.
