Direct award of contract

A direct award is a procurement without requirements on tenders in a certain form. However, there are certain requirements for documentation for direct awards from SEK 100,000 and up. The most common situation in which direct award is used is if the purchase amount is less than SEK 700,000.

Here you will find support material that you need to carry out your direct award. Start by reading the document Guidelines for direct award.

Support material in English will be available shortly.
