I.2) Joint procurement

 

HILMA instructions: 

  • This section is used for stating whether the procurement is to be carried out as a joint procurement by several contracting authorities. A joint procurement can be carried out using a separate central purchasing body, such a Hansel Ltd in the case of central government. In this case, both the joint procurement and the use of a central purchasing body must be announced. On the other hand, if the joint procurement will be carried out using a central purchasing body as a so-called procurement ring, for example, only the section stating that the contract involves joint procurement is to be filled out. 
  • In the case of a joint procurement that involves a procurement entity based in several EU or EEA countries (for example, a Finnish and Swedish procurement entity), the procurement law applied to the procedure must be stated. 
  • When joint procurement is used, at least one set of additional contact details must be added in the contact details.

  • The contract involves joint procurement
    • Fill out the details of the joint procurement if applicable
