HiQ has signed a comprehensive framework agreement with Kammarkollegiet, the Swedish Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency, that covers the southern region of Sweden.
“We’re so delighted to get this framework agreement that lets us collaborate with a big part of Sweden’s public administration,” says Anna Kleine, Managing Director at HiQ Skåne.
Kammarkollegiet concludes coordinated framework agreements or other joint agreements to streamline the purchase of goods and services that are procured by public authorities often, in large volumes or are of great value. The aim is to save time and money, and to make purchases under favourable terms.
The southern region includes the counties of Jönköping, Kronoberg, Kalmar, Gotland, Blekinge, Skåne, Halland and Västra Götaland. HiQ was chosen as a supplier in the specification areas Usability and Availability, Systems Development and Systems Management, and Testing and Test Management.
“The framework agreement is strategically important because the state purchasing centre at Kammarkollegiet is responsible for coordinating all government procurement activities. Which means that we can work with many Swedish authorities and help them with their challenges of simplifying and improving things for the Swedish people,” says Jerker Lindsten, Managing Director of HiQ Gothenburg.
The framework agreement is valid for up to four years.
