Competitive bidding processes
Valtori organises competitive bidding processes and procures competitive ICT services for its customers
Valtori's customers can concentrate on their own core business, as they do not have to take care of competitive bidding processes and procurement – we will do this for them. Efficient procurement processes promote customer satisfaction and competitiveness.
Our services are a combination of our own service production and commercial services provided by our trusted partners. We customise services to meet the needs of central government. For this reason, Valtori has established a partner and supplier network that supports competitiveness. Through this network, Valtori obtains the required services at competitive prices and terms.
General principles of procurement and competitive bidding
When purchasing basic IT equipment and consulting services, we use Hansel’s framework agreements. For high-volume purchases, Valtori arranges a bidding competition as an online auction. Most of the bidding competitions are implemented using the online bidding system of Cloudia.
The starting point for complex purchases is a technical dialogue, through which the market supply is clarified, an open competitive bidding or a negotiation procedure in which bidders are asked to participate. We request price information from at least three suppliers, even for small, direct purchases. In addition to price, Valtori emphasises quality.
