Enter into and follow up a purchase agreement

If a purchase of over NOK 100,000 is needed and no relevant framework agreement exists, a formal procurement process consisting in several steps must be carried out.

If you want to buy something that is not covered by a relevant framework agreement, you must consider whether a procurement process is needed to draw up a new agreement or whether it’s just a single-purchase case.

  1. You can make a single purchase without any agreement if:

    • The cost of the purchase is under NOK 100,000
    • We don't need to repeat the purchase
    How to complete the single purchase:
    • Go to My Order and select "Enter Requests".
    • Select the appropriate categories in the system, describe your request and submit. Your local purchaser will then assist you.
    • The following process includes checking with several providers before making the final order. It is not necessary to document the competition.
  2. You must initiate a formal procurement process if:

    • The cost of the purchase is over NOK 100,000
    • There is no framework agreement for what you need to buy
  3. Further process for purchases of NOK 100,000 - 500,000

     

    • Guidance, guidelines and standard templates that the local purchasers must use are located in the NAP group Purchasers. Do you need access to the templates and purchaser guidance, please contact us.
    • The Public Procurement Act, the Procurement Regulations part 1 and internal guidelines must be complied with in order to ensure a professional implementation.
    • Please contact the Section for Procurements for advice and guidance if necessary.
    • Otherwise, the process is carried out just as for purchases of over NOK 500,000 (read below):
