When public authorities buy goods and services, it must be done from procured agreements. The process for signing contracts or framework agreements takes place through procurement governed by the Public Procurement Act (2016: 1145).
If there is no contract or framework agreement
If there are no procured framework agreements or contracts for the products or services you wish to purchase, a procurement must be carried out.
It is the total cost of your planned purchase that determines how you proceed.
Step 1. Calculate contract value
The first step is to calculate the contract value. The value of the contract is the total amount included in the purchase and that will be paid to the supplier. The value must include the contract's total term, incl. shipping, installation, accessories and any extensions and options.
The value is calculated excluding VAT.
Step 2. Select procurement procedure
The total value of the purchase determines which procurement procedure is relevant.
