Who conducts the City of Helsinki’s tender processes?

The competitive tendering of procurements is centralised to the divisions, offices of public officials, and enterprises of the City of Helsinki.

The following procurement units of the City of Helsinki conduct tender processes:
•    City Executive Office 
•    Audit Department
•    Education Division, Culture and Leisure Division, Urban Environment Division and Social Services and Health Care Division 
•    municipal enterprises (Service Centre Helsinki, which provides food, wellbeing and telephone services; Stara, which provides construction services; Talpa, which provides financial management services; and Occupational Health Helsinki)
•    Rescue Department

Each of them has their own procurement team that focus on the unit’s own services. The divisions, offices and enterprises are responsible for preparing their separate procurements and making the relevant decisions.

Other organisations belonging to the Helsinki City Group prepare and decide on their own procurements. They can make use of the contracts of the joint procurement company Helsingin Konsernihankinta Oy (Helsinki Group Procurement Ltd). 

Preparations and decisions regarding joint procurements are made by the City Executive Office and the Social Services and Health Care Division. The City Executive Office is responsible for joint coordination of procurements in cooperation with divisions and enterprises.
