CASE – WELLBEING SERVICES COUNTY
The wellbeing services county of Päijät-Häme, Education Center Salpaus and municipalities Asikkala, Hartola, Heinola, Hollola, Iitti, Kärkölä, Lahti, Myrskylä, Orimattila, Padasjoki, Pukkila and Sysmä prepared and implemented the public bidding for occupational health care services in 2022-2023.
The goal of the procurement was to find an occupational health care partner that would be able to offer effective and high-quality health services to more than 15,000 employees. In addition, the bidding included the sale of the separate in-house company.
Freia’s experts participated in the preparation of the bidding documents, the determination of the specific needs of the ordering organizations and the writing of the final request for three private providers.
The public bidding was carried out with a negotiation procedure. The discussions were held until the end from the needs of the ordering organizations. However, no offers were received by the deadline and the bidding was cancelled.
Customer comment: “The procurement can be considered successful, even though we did not find a private partner. We are able to utilize the materials and documents in the future and in the development of current occupational health care.”
“As a bidding, this was a demanding and extensive entity that required stretching. The cooperation with Freia was competent, flexible and smooth.”
“Expert help enabled high-quality bidding material. For us order representatives, this was a great learning experience about the market.“
