Public Procurement Notices
Public procurement notices data contain the announcements published in HILMA, an electronic forum for publishing contract notices, maintained by the Ministry of Employment and the Economy of Finland. Public contracts are supply, service or public works contracts into which the state, municipalities or federations of municipalities, state enterprises and other contracting authorities, as defined in the procurement legislation, enter with external suppliers. Contracting authorities are required to publish the contracts exceeding a threshold value in the HILMA database. FSD collections contain data beginning from the year 2007.
