Evaluations are commissioned in compliance with the legislation governing public procurement.
The legislation on public procurement governs the commissioning of evaluations.
The FOPH awards evaluation contracts on the basis of a competition, employing an invitation procedure in most cases. With this procedure, the person commissioning the evaluation determines which potential suppliers are to be invited to submit an offer directly, without issuing a call for tenders. The person commissioning the evaluation must (if possible) invite at least three suppliers to submit an offer, and at least one of these must be non-local.
