Hi, How may I help you?

Comprehensive rules

The total procurement value of goods and services for the public sector amounts to more than NOK 520 billion per year (according to regjeringen.no / government.no).


The Norwegian procurement legislation is mainly based on EU directives that Norway is bound to implement through the EEA-Agreement. The main purpose of the legislation is to contribute to creating value for society, based on fair competition, good business practices and equal treatment of suppliers. The rules are comprehensive and offer both practical and legal challenges for public purchasers and for suppliers to the public sector.
