Deadline for Submission October 13, 2017, 5PM EST

Innovation Partnership: Procurement by Co-Design is a unique program that offers healthcare-service providers something rare: the opportunity to participate in the development of innovative solutions before procuring them. In turn, technology and service innovators with scalable business models can gain unprecedented access to end users and validate use cases to remain competitive.

Using a collaborative design approach, the program targets complex systemic problems while complying with the Broader Public Sector (BPS) procurement guidelines.

Grants available

Select teams will receive grants based on the recommendations of an independent judging panel:

  • $15 – 25k for committing to using the procurement by co-design process
  • Up to $50k towards acquiring the co-designed validated solutions
