Last year 19,713 tender notices were published in Finland for a total value of 14 billion euros. Even if the notices for the largest public contracts, above the EU thresholds, are published on TED (Tenders Electronic Daily), national tenders are not unimportant on the Finnish procurement market.
These are contracts below the EU thresholds, but above the national ones laid down in the Act on public contracts. In 2008 the number of national notices was 13,988, for a total value of 6 billion euros.
