Definition of the grounds for comparison in the system



How suppliers use Tarjouspalvelu.fi (the Supplier portal) to send procurement object information

  • With the input form (with information specified in the main section, “Criteria for the procurement object”). This is the normal, recommended method.
  • Without the input form (using only the tender documents attached by the supplier. In this case, no precise criteria are set up in the main section, “Criteria for the procurement object”).

NOTE! If desired, you can specify only manual scoring for the criteria and request a separate pricing appendix in the “traditional” way.



Procurement procedure

Partial tenders allowed
  • Select whether partial tenders will be allowed for each object group
    • By default, “No” is selected in this section 
    • If “Yes” is selected, partial tenders will be permitted within an object group and suppliers will be able to submit tenders even if they do not offer certain object groups. This means that they can block off the desired object groups/object rows in the procurement when they use the supplier portal but all of the procured objects within the object group must be offered


NOTE! If you want to allow partial tenders inside object groups, this command is given to the system on the “Procurement object criteria” tab under the text “Partial tenders permitted within object group” on the object group's editing page.


HANSEL feature:

Take receipt of tenders that do not comply with the call for tenders

  • Select whether tenders that do not comply with the call for tenders will be accepted
    • By default "No" is selected in this section
    • If "Yes" is selected, this text will be added to PDF documents generated for the call for tenders and the system will remove all of the checks related to the criteria so that suppliers need not fulfill the minimum requirements set on the call for tenders in order to be able to submit a tender

Use the two envelope bidding procedure

  • Select whether the procurement will use the two envelope procedure
    • By default, “No” is selected in this section 
    • If “Yes” is selected, the comparison will be made in two different phases. All factors except prices are assessed in the first stage, after which the prices are compared. The objective of this procedure is to increase objectivity within the procurement process as the prices do not play a part in comparing quality



Additional information

Specify the deadline by which requests for additional information must be submitted to the procuring entity using the Tarjouspalvelu.fi supplier portal:

  • By entering dates in the form dd/mm/yyyy or by selecting dates from the pop-up window that opens when you click on the calendar icon
  • Or by entering the number of days before the deadline for tenders or requests to participate
  • Or by selecting the same deadline as for the call for tenders NOTE! This option is only in use in the test environment.

NOTE! Suppliers will not be able to submit requests for additional information using the Tarjouspalvelu.fi supplier portal after the deadline.

If applicable, enter additional information about submitting questions (this may include information about when the procuring entity will respond):



Confidential information

Suppliers can propose that specific data be treated as confidential on the supplier portal (on the “Eligibility requirements” and “Procurement object information entry” tabs). “Yes” is selected by default in this section, so the supplier can specify which rows are to be treated as confidential. If no confidential information is to be permitted, select “No” and the supplier cannot propose that any data be treated as confidential.
