This paper highlights the findings from the KNUT project (Electronic Procurement ofTelecommunications Services for the Swedish Public Sector). The project creates a service to make the whole public procurement process electronically from analysis of needs, through development of request for proposal (RfP), contract administration and feed back, as well as a model for public procurement of telecommunications services outgoing from end-users’ and organisational needs. The study includes a detailed analysis of the procurement process. Among the results is a new way of looking at the pros and cons of procurement from centrally negotiated framework contracts versus local procurement with the help of the KNUT service.
