From tender to contract

FMV procures both goods and services. The procurements are often in the technology area and for the long-term. Weapon systems, such as aircrafts, ships or tanks, are developed in stages over several years.

Acquisition work includes studies of various options, analyses, planning, design, construction and monitoring. We also procure a large amount of services by qualified consultants.

The procured goods are used in defence training, exercise and maintenance activities, or placed in storage to be used in a crisis or war. Some equipment is also used in the Swedish Armed Forces' peacekeeping operations in the context of Sweden's involvement in international collaborations.

Procurements, intended not only for defense purposes, and that  exceeds an official threshold of 1,234,000 SEK, are advertised in the EU’s Official Journal


Since FMV is a public procurement authority, there are rules and principles that FMV has to follow. The main framework is the Public Procurement Act (LOU) that applies to all public organisations. FMV also complies with the law for the procurement of defence and security (LUFS).

The basic principles of both laws are a businesslike approach, competition and objectivity. The framework also includes rules about procurement, tendering, confidentiality, bid opening, the qualification of tenderers and the award of contracts, etc. FMV shall also check that a new supplier is registered for VAT and does not have tax liabilities.

FMV also signs general agreements with suppliers for the Swedish Armed Forces and other governmental authorities.

Conflicts of interest, secondary employment, kickbacks and bribery

Both in business and management there are reasons to discuss concepts such as ethics, business morals, customer-supplier relationships etc.

This is especially true for FMV, whose employees represent an authority that is extensively involved in the procurement of goods and services at very high monetary levels.

Social responsibility

FMV takes certain basic rights of employees into account when procuring.

The supplier shall in performance of work for delivery, comply with their national legislation in terms of working and employment conditions for their employees. Such working and employment conditions must at a minimum comply with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) conventions.

RFI is a way for FMV to gather information about which products and services the market can offer.

The RFI allows us to obtain information about potential solutions in several different areas. RFI may result in a development of complete specifications.

RFI is a type of market research where suppliers have the opportunity to describe their services and/or products. FMV has no obligation to implement a contract in connection with an RFI.
