Public procurements closer to entrepreneurs
The Act on Public Procurement and Concession Contracts obligates the procurement units of the City of Rovaniemi to arrange competitive bidding for its procurements that exceed specified thresholds, and this should also be notified openly. The principle objective is the more efficient use of public funds and the improvement of the competitiveness of enterprises. Another objective is safeguarding equal opportunities for enterprises to offer their goods, services and construction contracts for the procurement units. The City of Rovaniemi uses an electronic competitive bidding system. Bids for tender that exceed national and EU thresholds can be found from the Hilma service and the website tarjouspalvelu.fi/rovaniemi.
“With market dialogues, we strive to achieve an open dialogue with entrepreneurs before commencing bidding. In this way, we obtain the best and most up-to-date information about what happens in the sector and in the field”, tells Procurement Lawyer Anu Kulmala
