The core of Norway’s e-procurement infrastructure is a PEPPOL-based transport infrastructure, components and services, through which buyers and sellers exchange e-procurement documents.
Doffin Norwegian tender publication service
Suppliers can use Doffin to find public tenders in Norway. Doffin is a national publishing platform that fulfils Norwegian directives for public sector tenders above specific contract values to be published electronically.
TED EU-wide tender publication service
