Each year Lnu buys chemicals for amounts that require a public procurement according to Swedish law. If we do not follow these regulations, we risk high costs for fines and damages.
Primarily, you should buy the cheapest options that are listed in the product list. When you have the need for chemicals not listed of course you can buy them as well from the contracted suppliers. In exceptional cases , you can also buy from suppliers other than the adopted , but this will require clear justification of this (as an example, if a project is dependent on having the same chemical throughout the project and this can only be delivered by another supplier).
In the document "Kemikalieavtal i korthet" you will find information on where and how to order chemicals, contact details etc.
Further information will be given at information meetings held in Kalmar 18/4 at 3.15pm, room A137 and in Växjö on 19/4, 3.15pm room N1017
There is a possibility to have separate information meetings with your institution. Please contact Anna Sverresdotter Aldén, email@example.com
The procurement of chemicals at Lnu started in 2014, with a group of representatives for the various institutions. They have gone through the different needs, requirements and preferences and this has resulted in a contract where eight companies have been adopted as suppliers to Lnu.

Limit (procurement card) The public authority responsible for payment – central billing
Can be ordered by members of staff who make a number of smaller purchases on a regular basis, partly in order to avoid invoices and partly in order to avoid having membership cards at each respective place of purchase, which is often required in order to be granted a purchase invoice. Comes with the possibility of optional purchase limit. Receipts are to be reported together with an invoice. The application is to be signed by an authorisered signatory (chief financial officer).

A card-less card account that can be used by multiple persons at the public authority. Used for card purchases where a physical card is not required, for instance when buying things on the internet. The application is to be filled in by an administrator, who will be responsible for the account. The application is to be signed by an authorised signatory (chief financial officer), since the public authority is responsible for the payment. The administrator controls who gets to use the account.
