Procurement below the thresholds and of B-Services regardless of value

The provisions of Chapter 15 of LOU contain procedural rules for, among other things, procurements that are not covered by the EU Directives, i.e. procurements below the thresholds and procurement of B-Services, regardless of value.

These rules are sometimes called ‘Sweden’s national procurement rules’ and are based on, for example, the provisions that Sweden had for public procurement before the EU’s procurement provisions were adopted.

The fundamental principles for public procurement, which are described in Chapter 2, also apply to procurement under Chapter 15 of LOU.
