Report on the government’s use of joint public sector procurement frameworks


Report no. 17/2023

The purpose of the study is to assess whether purchases made by five selected ministries have to a satisfactory extent been made through the framework agreements. The report answers the following questions: 

  • Have the ministries procured goods and services through the framework agreements, as they are required to?
  • Have the ministries established procedures that facilitate utilisation of the framework agreements? 

Rigsrevisionen assesses that two out of the five ministries examined in the study that have procured goods and services under the framework agreements have done so to a satisfactory extent. The remaining ministries have not. This is not satisfactory. The consequence is that the government does not fully realize the savings potential of procurement under framework agreements.

 Rigsrevisionen initiated the study in March 2023.
