The goal is the most benefit for the money

We are constantly working to create more benefit for the SEK 53 billion that goes to purchases. In order for us to succeed in this, it is important that the supplier markets work well.  We have received a mandate from the government in our role as employer to work specifically for functioning supplier markets in the form of increased productivity, innovation, competition and efficiency in the markets for investment, operation and maintenance. Market analysis is an important part of achieving this. The overall purpose of the market analysis is to investigate competition in the markets in which we operate and to describe what we are doing to develop different submarkets.
