The Act on Public Contracts states how state and municipal authorities and other contracting authorities shall put their contracts out to tender.

In Finland, numerous amounts of contracts are put out to tender yearly and an increasing rate of corporations participate in competitive tendering.

Therefore, competitive tendering offers a considerable opportunity, and ensuring due process guarantees the best possible outcome for the corporation. Entrepreneurs often need professional help in drawing up tenders, in assessing the tendering process and the procurement decision, and in the possible petition of an incorrect procedure or procurement decision.
