A public corporation must abide by the Finnish Procurement Act and the EU Directives on procurement. The purpose of the procurement legislation is to enhance the use of public funds because an open and equal tendering process increases the companies’ competitiveness and gives them a better opportunity to offer their products and services to the public sector.
We assist our clients in matters concerning the public procurement. Typically, we advise companies participating in a procurement procedure in the preparation of tenders and represent tenderers who lost the competitive bidding in the Market Court. We also assist contracting entities at different phases of the procurement process.
