Government acquisitions are goods-, services- and construction contacts that a state, municipalities, municipal federations, the church, congregations, state owned corporations and other procurement departments that are named in procurement law, purchase outside of their own organization.
The Finnish government´s acquisitions are regulated in acquisition law. In the European Union acquisitions are regulated by acquisition directives.
The main principal in government acquisitions is openness, fairness and transparency.
When a public corporation makes acquisitions it has to make use of the existing competitive opportunities. Government acquisitions must always be made in a manner that abide by the regulations in acquisition law. That is why it is important, not only for public corporations, but also suppliers of goods and services (companies) to have a good understanding of the acquisition process.
