The City of Tampere will make its decision on the further planning of the area after and based on the competition. In purchasing a possible further assignment, the City of Tampere can choose to use direct procurement, because the procurement concerns a service, and the procurement will be made based on the design competition and must, based on the rules of the design competition, be completed with the winner of the competition or, if there are several winners, with one of them. The City of Tampere does not commit to procure further planning through direct procurement. If any further assignment is procured, exclusion criteria will be examined, in addition to which the competitor must prove that they have sufficient finances and funding as well as the technical capacity and qualifications for the task.

Competitors have the right to request, in both the first and second phase, clarifications and additional information on the programme by the time limits specified in the competition programme. Questions must be submitted through and will be answered on the competition website at:
