Procurement assignments

Procurement assignments

A procurement assignment is initiated by means of the authorised procurer sending the procurement request form(only in swedish) to the Procurement and Purchase Office. Be careful to fill in all of the mandatory fields, to avoid getting an error message. When the assignment is received, the authorised procurer will receive confirmation within 1-2 days. If you do not receive confirmation, please contact us at

The responsible procurement officer in the Procurement and Purchase Office will then contact the procurer to let her/him know when the procurement can be commenced and together they will create a procurement schedule. Note that the procurement assignment must arrive in good time before the good/service is to be delivered. This is because the procurement process takes time and the Procurement and Purchase Office always has a queue of procurements to deal with.

If you want to know more about public procurement, see our procurement guide.

Ordering from framework agreements with renewed competition

Some framework agreements (especially the States framework agreement) have an order for suborders called renewed competition. An order for suborders is the set of terms that state which one of the suppliers under the framework agreement you should order from. Renewed competition means that the suborder is subjected to competition among the suppliers that are adopted under the framework agreement.

Renewed competition shall be dealt with as ordinary procurement errands. If you have a need to do a renewed competition you send us a procurement assignment by filling in the form procurement request.
