Purchases and procurements

Purchase order under a framework agreement

If one of UiB's framework agreements meet your need, you are obliged to use it.

Purchase management system

The good or service must be ordered using UiB's purchase management system. An overview of local purchasers per unit can be found here.  

Local purchasers will find more information on how to proceed here (information currently only available in Norwegian).

Framework agreements have different terms and conditions

Framework agreements vary, and will have different terms and conditions. For instance, agreements can be made with just one or with multiple suppliers. Also, routines for placing orders and internal routines for how to proceed differ. Therefore, it is important for local purchasers to keeps themselves well informed about the terms and conditions of each agreement by using the agreement portal, Avtaleportalen. Some purchase orders must be placed by a technical department. If in doubt, please send an issue to the Procurement section (Seksjon for innkjøp) via Issue tracker.
