Efficient new hospital construction projects place high demands on the procurement of goods and materials. Procurement is therefore an important element of the new hospital construction.
Calls for tenders in connection with hospital construction must be conducted in a professional and coordinated manner. This means that a broad range of needs and requirements have to be met in the area of efficient procurement and operations. These needs and requirements take into account everything from efficient cleaning and canteen operations to patient safety and energy efficiency at the hospitals.
Procurement must be structured appropriately based on a holistic view, i.e. taking into account 'total cost of ownership'.
