The purpose of the study is to assess whether six institutions under the Ministry of Culture achieve value for money in their procurement. Value for money in procurement is achieved when the institutions scan the market before buying, for instance, by obtaining quotations from several suppliers and buying standard goods and services across the institution.
The report answers the following questions:
- Is procurement at the institutions carried out in compliance with relevant principles for public administration, current legislation and guidelines for procurement of goods and services, and building and construction projects?
- Are the institutions and the Ministry of Culture managing and following up on procurement in a manner that supports achievement of value for money?
