Regional authorities took an interest in procurement development

Demand for procurement development services remained high in 2019, resulting in net sales of €345,000 (€338,000 in 2018). A total of 23 development assignments were completed in 2019. The largest by value were for the city of Helsinki, the National Police Board of Finland and Traffic Management Finland Ltd.

The development assignments involved control and organisation of procurement, analyses of key indicators and current status, planning, contractual management and development of supplier cooperation, for example. Individual customer challenges are resolved through a project-natured approach, while more extensive and longer-term assignments are realised as procurement development services. In this service form, a development manager from Hansel works in the customer organisation for a predetermined period.

The procurement development unit was also actively involved in the operations of the Competence Centre for Sustainable and Innovative Public Procurement (KEINO). The total value of the work done for KEINO was €139,000. Hansel’s developers were also involved in the implementation of an operational programme of the Ministry of Finance and the Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities called Effective Public Procurement (Vaikuttavat julkiset hankinnat) or Procurement Finland (Hankinta-Suomi).
