Summary of decisions 16 February 2017: The procurement strategy for the second phase was presented

The procurement strategy for the second phase of the West Metro project was presented to the Board of Länsimetro Oy at its meeting on 16 February 2017. The procurement strategy will take into account experiences from the first phase. The goals of the strategy include ensuring adequate competition and clear contract scoping. The procurement strategy will also emphasise dialogue between the different parties during the procurement phase and cooperation with the contractor during contract implementation. Länsimetro’s procurements will be announced in the public procurement system HILMA.

The report commissioned by the Board was presented to the Board. The Board will continue to discuss the matter in its next meeting in March.

The Board also approved Länsimetro Oy’s financial statement as well as a proposal that the organisation responsible for building the West Metro will move into shared premises during the spring.

The Board also approved a policy to draw up a summary of decisions made after every Board meeting. According to the City of Espoo’s corporate group guidelines, the City’s major subsidiaries must prepare a public summary of decisions made at Board meetings.

The next meeting will be held on 1 March 2017.
