HiQ was the only company which received a full score in the Swedish Tax Agency’s procurement for services within IT Applications. Following a decision by the Administrative Court of Appeal to reject an appeal, HiQ is once again one of the four companies chosen as winners of the procurement.
“It’s a huge thrill for us to know that HiQ is so highly ranked by the Swedish Tax Agency and obtains the trust to continue to help the Ageny to develop systems and services which simplify operations for the tax payers of Sweden”, says Lars Stugemo, CEO and President of HiQ.
The procurement includes services within IT Applications and can be utilised by the Swedish Tax Agency, the Enforcement Authority, the Election Authority, the Swedish E-Identification Board, the Council on Advanced Tax Rulings, and the Taxation of Research Workers Board.
In the contract award decision HiQ has received the highest possible score within all areas by the Swedish Tax Agency. The areas are; Assignment Organization, Analysis and investigation, Agile Teams, Development assignment and Agile Team Java Development. The procurement was appealed by two competing consulting companies to the Administrative Court and then to the Administrative Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal has now decided to reject first appeal and not to grant a trial permit of the second appeal. The Contract can now be endorsed as soon as the standstill period has expired.
“The Swedish Tax Agency, together with the other authorities, is one of HiQ’s most important clients. It has been a long process since we won the procurement in September 2019 – and now we are looking forward to continuing assit the Tax Agency become even more efficient and to develop even smarter services. This is a win for both Sweden and all its tax payers”, says Erik Ridman, Director of Communications at HiQ.
