Omsorgsbygg is launching a new procurement within the PAPIRUS project trying to put to use all the experiences from the other procurements.
– There was interest from the market and more than 30 people joined the market event in Oslo. In addition we had 15 one-to-one meetings with suppliers after the event. In the end there were very few bids and it was clear that the suppliers were not ready to deliver all the documentation we were asking. Main lesson learned is not to stop the communication with the market after the tender is launched, and to simplify everything, says project coordinator in Omsorgsbygg Lene Lad Johansen.
Now the plan is to put all the experiences and lessoned learned from all the PAPIRUS procurements and do a new tender in Oslo. All of the four procuring partners have had low interest in the tender after launching. The complexity of the documents made it time consuming to participate in the contest.
Omsorgsbygg is planning a new procurement to replace windows and insulate the façade of three kindergartens in Oslo. The process and documents will be simplified and there will be a new market event as well as a conference to address questions after the tender is out in the market.
