    Title

    Economics of Procurement in Space Contracting

    Description

    For the major future institutional missions it is of vital importance for the public procurement authorities to have a solid and consolidated baseline prior to the initiation of the development phase. Such solid baseline needs to be supported and validated through a detailed assessment of the requirements in relation to the technologies available and under development. The new space era should go hand in hand with a new acquisition policy involving a progressive transfer of responsibilities and design authority to industry. This new distribution of responsibilities between the public sector and industry can become a reality as a result of different procurement policies such as joint proposal teams, joint dialogue phases and the concept of procurement as a service. Transfer to industry of the responsibility for the mission related technology preparation activities is another example. The economic impact of such approach could be substantial as it could lead to faster development times and earlier availability of the satellite functionalities / objectives. The session proposed will be structured with presentations and discussions by senior representatives from the public sector and industries, presenting a variety of different approaches proposed by the public procurement authorities and the experiences gained / views expressed by industry.
