The City of Vantaa puts out to tender its procurements in accordance with the legislation on procurement as well as in accordance with other law and criteria related to procurements.
Procurement notifications exceeding the national threshold value are published on the public procurement notification channel HILMA either nationally or throughout the EU, depending on the value of the procurement. In tendering, the city uses the online tendering system Cloudia. Invitation for tenders made on Cloudia and other documents are available online at: Cloudian tarjouspalvelu. Cloudia is also used in small-scale procurements.
