Learn about what e-procurement is and how it is valuable for public sector buyers, suppliers and ICT vendors.
The Norwegian government has set out public sector targets for e-procurement, in alignment with broader European initiatives. Within Norway, Difi (Direktorat for forvaltning og IKT) is officially empowered to develop frameworks and tools for encouraging the adoption of e-procurement in the public sector. This mandate is supported by legislation passed in 2012, which requires that Norwegian public sector entities must utilize electronic invoicing for all procurement activities.
