When public authorities and municipalities buy goods and services, it must be done from procured agreements. The process of establishing an agreement takes place through a procurement.
Public procurement is governed by laws and regulations to, among other things minimize corruption and conflict of interest, ensure good quality of demanded goods and services and equal treatment of suppliers.
The Procurement and Purchasing Office is responsible for the procurement activities at the university.
