The European Investment Bank has published a technical note surrounding procuring Intelligent Transport Systems for urban mobility.
The paper focusses on some of the difficulties that may be encountered such as a lack of strategic context or interoperability, technical problems during implementation, poorly performing systems and limitations on the reuse of data.
It says that, by providing detailed insights into ITS procurement practices and principles as well as putting forward a series of practical recommendations, this technical note may help build up the capacity of local authorities to procure ITS in a more efficient manner.
It adds that it may also help local authorities to specify requests for EIB technical advisory services and to seek financial support for the implementation of appropriate invest.
