Electronic product lists

The City of Helsinki uses the electronic order system Basware Purchase Management. Electronic product lists are preferred for products on the basis of the procurement contract, which the Procurement Centre of the City of Helsinki receives in cooperation with Basware Oyj.

Before delivering the electronic product lists, their content must always be agreed upon with the Procurement Centre. After this, you agree with Basware Oyj on what format the product lists are delivered in.

Basware Oyj recommends that the supplier creates the product lists in either xml format or with the Basware Catalog Feeder application that the supplier can use for free. The products should be set out in product groups according to the UNSPSC codes. Instructions for creating product lists and the definition of UNSPSC product groups are available from Basware Oyj.
