Public procurement – tender
Combined, public authorities purchase goods and services in excess of 430 billion NOK annually. Municipal governments alone purchase for over 160 billion NOK. State, municipal and county governments and statutory bodies are subject to regulations of public procurement when purchasing goods or services, or when performing construction work or developments.
Procurement regulations are intended to ensure that suppliers have equal access to the public market and that there is competition on equal terms, which contributes to limiting public expenses and prevention of corruption in the public sector.
