Press release 24 May 2018: Public procurement services under one company
Public procurement expertise in Finland will be brought together under a single company. In the future, the state, municipalities and forthcoming regional governments will be able to obtain public procurement from a single place. This will help to develop procurement expertise and combine purchase volumes into a larger unit, which will in turn boost procurement efficiency and save tax funds. The change will also enable more uniform modern public procurement practices, making it easier for all companies, even small ones, to participate in public tendering.
