Irish Government embraces remanufacturing

July 5, 2024

The Office of Government Procurement (OGP) has launched a new framework that allows public bodies to purchase remanufactured laptops.

This is the first arrangement of its kind in the EU and can be availed of by all public service bodies regardless of size.

The contract has an estimated value of up to €30 million and fully supports the circular economy objectives set out in the Green Public Procurement Strategy and Action Plan 2024-2027. In the region of 60,000 laptops can be procured up to the €30 million value of the framework over its four year term.

The laptops are subject to rigorous manufacturing and testing standards and devices supplied under the new framework come with up to three years of warranty.

Minister for Public Expenditure NDP Delivery and Reform, Paschal Donohoe TD, welcomed the arrangement saying: “The National Development Plan outlined our ambitions to transition to a low- carbon society and this framework supports this.

“This is the first such framework to be established by a central purchasing body in the EU and offers significant environmental benefits, including carbon reduction and resource and water savings as well as value for money.”

Minister of State with responsibility for public procurement and circular economy Ossian Smyth TD, welcomed the arrangement saying: “The public sector now has a way to buy remanufactured laptops from a trusted source, saving money and avoiding waste. This is a change from previous rules that advised always to buy new products. I’m delighted to see this progress.”

The cost of a remanufactured notebook is, on average, 30% lower than the newly manufactured equivalent. This arrangement supports commitments in the Programme for Government aimed at ensuring public procurement leads the transition to the Circular Economy.
