Competitive Bidding and Management of Contracts for Winter Operation Activities in Norway

Outsourcing of road operation and maintenance activities to contractors through competitive bidding started in Norway in 2003. The price level was reduced between 10-30 % for contracts subject to competitive bidding compared to earlier when works were carried out through own forces. However, there is a concern within the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) related to keeping up the quality of work, the consequences related to road safety and road user satisfaction.
