Reference number
Coordinator Sveriges Kommuner och Landsting - SKL Sveriges kommuner och landsting
Funding from Vinnova SEK 280 315
Project duration July 2018 - December 2018
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The purpose of the pre study was to investigate the possibility of establishing a procurment network for the social services operating system. The aim of the network is to increase the municipalities´ ability to make good purchases, and to develop and influence the market. The preliminary study has confirmed that there is a great need and interest for a procurement network in this field. The municipalities need to be able to buy innovative business systems that meet the needs that exist today, for example, to be able to interact with residents, automate and use AI.

Expected results and effects

The results of the preliminary study has already resulted in an approved application to Vinnova for co-financing for the implementation of the pre procurement network for social services for four years. The funds were awarded to SKL in December 2018 and the work on starting up the network is now in full swing.

Planned approach and implementation

The preliminary study has been carried out according to plan. Workshops with some of SKL´s existing networks has been held. There has been dialogue with five of the most important authorities in this matter, and with the industry organizations such as Almega and IT & Telecom companies. The municipalities have responded to two different questionnaires that have mapped the current situation and needs and supplier dialogues with the four largest suppliers in the market has been held.
