About the National Programme for Supplier Development
The programme is a joint collaboration by significant entities with unique strengths, networks and focus areas – representing both the public and private sector:
- Difi (Agency for Public Management and eGovernment)
- Norwegian Association of Local and Regional Authorities (KS)
- Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO)
- Innovation Norway (IN)
- The Research Council of Norway (FR)
In Norway, public agencies procure goods and services for close to 58 billion Euros every year. Innovative Procurements is a new method for public procurements. In Innovative Procurements requesting pre-defined solutions from the market is discouraged. Instead, needs and functions are communicated to the market, which in turn responds on how to best solve this.
Through Innovative Procurements, mapping and defining needs are emphasized, the market is invited for dialogue, and challenged to come up with smart solutions.
