Data submitted in this category must be aggregated by office, updated at least monthly & satisfy the following minimum criteria:

  • suppliers name

Data Location


Ríkiskaup has a list of recent public tenders and awards on their website:

The awards do not always show who was awarded nor do they always provide a description. Open tenders do show suppliers and the value. Sometimes the data is available on the site in the right field so in all likelihood this is caused by the data not being put on the website, but according to a conversation with Ríkiskaup this is all recorded in a computer system.
