Trafikverket considers that collaboration is an important factor in the development of the construction industry towards a higher productivity and level of innovation.

Collaboration means that the work is performed in close cooperation between client and supplier(s), in order to ensure an effective working method, the right quality, improvements and goal fulfilment.

This document describes how the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket) and the supplier market in contracts and technical consulting services shall and should operate with different tools to enable collaboration prior to procurement and when contracts have been procured by Trafikverket. The target group is all employees who work from planning to the completion of a project or assignment.
