Planned procurements

Before starting a procurement process, we often conduct a market consultation in order to prepare and plan our procurements with due care. A market consultation includes requests for information, market dialogue and technical dialogue. This allows us to obtain additional information from suppliers for preparing a call for tender. We publish our market consultation notices in the national public procurement channel Hilma.
