Ordering from printers, agencies and photographers

As a public authority, Lund University must observe the legislation on public procurement. This means that all employees must turn to our procured suppliers when ordering services from printers, agencies and photographers. On these pages you will find information on the framework agreements and contact details for our suppliers.

The agreements include both Lund University’s own contracts and government agreements which apply to several public authorities. The agreements are structured in various ways which affect how they are to be used. Find more detailed information in each category below.

Our agreements

Lund University has procurement agreements within the following areas:

Media and reputation analysis

What to remember when ordering

A consistently communicated graphic profile contributes to clarity, unity and increased visibility. These are factors which positively affect the university’s credibility and good reputation. Be careful always to follow the rules and instructions in the graphics manual when ordering services from one of our procured suppliers, regardless of whether the order concerns printed or digital material.

Templates for product or service specification

The templates below for product or service specification contain a number of points which you need to have considered before you contact the supplier. A good product or service specification increases the likelihood of the delivered product or service matching your needs and wishes.

When is contacting a supplier outside our framework agreements permitted?

The framework agreements must always be followed. A valid reason to engage a supplier outside our framework agreements is in principle only when all the suppliers within a product area have been asked and are unable to supply the desired product or service. To break the framework agreement can mean running the risk of claims for damages. In that case, the organisational unit which violated the agreement has to carry the cost.

More information and good advice are available on the web pages concerning purchasing and procurement. From these pages, you can also access the agreements database in Lupin. Lupin also contains information on all Lund University’s agreements, both its own and the government framework agreements.
