Abstract

Governments are major customers and thus have a unique capability to shape supply chains and promote innovation in the supply base. However, the operations and supply management (OSM) literature has largely neglected the role of government procurement in stimulating innovation. We empirically examine the Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI), a UK policy for public procurement of R&D. The SBRI helps in addressing market and systems failures and creating markets for new technologies, but its full potential remains unrealised. More generally, we demonstrate the importance for OSM to embrace a wider set of actors in the understanding of supply chain phenomena.
