AUSTRIA: The Federal Procurement Agency (FPA) (Bundesbeschaffung GmbG)

Bundesbeschaffung GmbH (Federal Procurement Agency, FPA) was founded in 2001 by the Federal Procurement Agency Act (FPA Gesetz) as a strategic procurement organisation to provide central procurement services to the federal State, in particular to negotiate framework contracts and make them available to the Ministries. Its primary tasks are to bundle requirements to obtain better prices and terms from suppliers and to standardise public purchasing to reduce processing costs and legal risks. The FPA is a non-profit organisation providing free services to their mandatory clients. Federal Ministries are obliged to order from these contracts – unless they are able to obtain the same product to better conditions. Other public sector organisations like universities, communities, states, state-owned organisations may take advantage of FPA’s contracts and services. The health procurement field is one of the BBG’s important growing areas. At the moment, we are counting 64 different legal entities of the Austrian health sector as BBG customers.
