Knowit became IT contract supplier to HanselPublished 28 May 2015
Knowit Oy has been chosen as a central government supplier and signed contracts with Hansel, government’s central purchasing body, operating in the same role as Kammarkollegiet in Sweden, in three categories.
According to the framework agreement, Knowit Oy can offer services for public organizations during the next four years in the following categories:
- Application/software services and maintenance
- Solution development and maintenance
- Testing services
Through the framework agreement, public organizations can acquire products and services without conducting their own public tendering. The value of procurements in these three categories has exceeded 20 million euros per year. Six to twelve suppliers have been chosen in each category.
- We applied to the categories in which we can help Hansel's clients in the best way. We won the competitive tendering and became Hansel's supplier in all three categories in which we applied. This opens a great number of new doors for us and is an excellent possibility to develop our business, says Ville Särmälä, CEO of Knowit Oy.
In addition to its own consultants, Knowit Oy will exploit the knowledge and resources of Knowit Group’s 1,800 experts and its wide subcontractor network. In the "Solution development and maintenance" category Knowit participated together with Datium Oy.
Hansel is the government's central purchasing body in Finland, operating in the same role as Kammarkollegiet in Sweden. It is a driving force and a developer of public procurement. The aim is to reduce public expenditure by increasing productivity in central government procurement.
