Management and Quality Plan

The Project Management and Quality Plan will enclose all the required information needed to adopt a smooth and efficient management of the project from the administrative and budgetary points of view. Through revision of project progresses and reports to the EC the Management and Quality Plan will be implemented to all project procedures (data, reporting, dissemination and communication activities, etc.) in order to ensure compliance with quality standards (ISO 9001 and 14001).

Dissemination & communication Plan

This deliverable aims to present the dissemination and communication strategy and the associated actions that will be implemented during the XPRESS project.

XPRESS Interactive Portal

This deliverable aims at explaining the structure and functionalities of the XPRESS ́ portal including the sitemap, interactions and interfaces. Indicator for success: Analysis of the XPRESS tool to collect key information about existing and potential new GPP projects and to share information with potential new agents

First draft of the RES Survey (RESS)

The main result showed in this deliverable will be the first draft of the RES Survey (RESS) which will be implemented in Task 2.3. It will come up from 10 co-creation workshops that will be organised in each partner country with innovative SMEs and local authorities. The workshops will serve for mapping needs and build new ideas for collaboration.

Report on dissemination activities M12-24

This report describes the promotional and dissemination activities conducted during the second year of the project. It provides an overview of different tools used for communication and promotional purposes, new materials/tools created during this period, overall dissemination performance in the different channels, among other relevant results such as participation in events and publications.

XPRESS dataset

Description: This deliverable aims to describe the characteristics of SMEs, Public authorities and projects, for the various countries involved in the XPRESS project, secondary source dataset collected from national databases on GPP projects. Indicator for success: key information on the interaction between innovative SMEs and Public authorities on existing and past GPP projects.

Initial Analysis of the barriers to investments in innovative RES

In task 3.1, the data collected within WP2 is analysed with a view to identifying strategies, drivers and barriers of green procurement with respect to the involvement of innovative SMEs. The analysis presented in deliverable D3.1 follows the principle of triangulation, combining the insights obtained from case studies, database research as well as a quantitative survey. This approach provides several angles on the central issue, and combines the perspectives from both the public purchasers and the suppliers. Deliverable D3.1 will contribute to strengthening the conceptual foundation of the project, providing the basis for developing a number of main assumptions and hypotheses about the challenges with and opportunities for stimulating RES uptake through SME friendly GPPs. These assumptions and hypotheses will in turn provide useful input to both the stakeholder café’s and policy co-creation workshops during the second half of the project period. Indicator for success: Feedback from the relevant stakeholders on the identification of the key barriers for involvement of innovative SMEs in green public procurement Linked to Task 3.1

XPRESS strategy

This deliverable aims to shape the way XPRESS elaborates the RES Survey in terms of the type of questions submitted to the relevant stakeholders in order to collect the database that will be later analysed within the other WPs. Indicator for success: first draft of the RESS survey (Task 2.3).

Framework definition and recommendations

Description: this deliverable is focused on presenting the preliminary activities needed to define the goals and the data collection methods that are the first step for the environmental, economic and social assessments. Indicator for success: Feedback from XPRESS partners and relevant stakeholders on the methodological clarity and completeness of the data collected.

Dataset for good practice examples

Description: This deliverable provides a description of the secondary source datasets collected on past and existing GPP projects to support the sustainability assessment based on the life-cycle approach (LCA-Life Cycle Assessment, LCC-Life Cycle Cost, SLCA-Social Life Cycle Assessment) which is the core for the analysis in WP4. Indicator for success: key information needed as input for implementing the LCA analysis.

Report on dissemination activities M1-12

This report describes the promotional and dissemination activities conducted during the first year of the project. It provides an overview of different tools used for communication and promotional purposes, new materials/tools created during this period, overall dissemination performance in the different channels, among other relevant results such as participation in events and publications.

Initial Multivariate Statistical Analysis

The deliverable provides analysis on the causal impact of GPPs on innovative SMEs financial constraints and how LCA of RES-technologies influence financing conditions. Indicator for success: Results from the multivariate analysis are available and a discussion containing the results is published and made available to a broader audience.

Initial assessment of the RES innovations and GPPs on SMEs financial constraints

Description: Based on data collected in WP2 this deliverable provides a descriptive, univariate assessment on how RES innovations and GPPs affect SMEs financial constraints and help local governments implementing their needs for RES innovations. Indicator for success: Feedback from XPRESS partners and relevant stakeholders on the statistical analysis of the impact of RES innovations and GPPs on SMEs access to finance.

Plan and Recommendations for Ethical, Data and Risk Management

The Plan provides recommendations for: Ethical, Data and and Risk Management. This document serves as a guide for all partners to provide guidelines about how to manage data, ethical and risks issues. It includes a detailed Project Management Plan, Gantt chart and a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). It will include a schedule per task, responsible partner related subtasks, related deliverables, and dependencies on other tasks. The aim is to describe the mechanisms used during the project implementation and ensure high quality and ethically sound nature of project deliverables and activities. At least 2 revisions will be done in the course of the project (one just before the end of the first reporting period and one just before the end of the second (and final) reporting period).
