The National Agency for Public Procurement has an overall responsibility for developing and supporting the procurement carried out by the contracting authorities and entities.
Our task is to work for an effective and socially and environmentally sustainable public procurement to the benefit of the society and the participants in the markets. We provide support to contracting authorities, entities and suppliers.
The Swedish Competition Authority is the supervisory body for public procurement.
Public procurement is governed by the Swedish Public Procurement Act (2016:1145– LOU), which is largely based on EU Directive concerning public procurement.
