Prior Information Notice — New Framework Agreements for Payment and Account Holding Services for the Government 2022
Direktoratet for forvaltning økonomistyring (DFØ) is an ordinary government administration body under the Ministry of Finance. See www.dfo.no for further information on DFØ and our organisation. DFØ is responsible for, amongst other things, entering into and managing framework agreements for payment and account holding services for government entities. The framework agreements are connected to the government's group account scheme in Norges Bank, and are obligatory for all government entities to use. There are approx. 190 entities that have made call-offs on the current framework agreements. The transaction volume is approx. 80 mill. payment transactions a year.
DFØ currently has framework agreements for payment and account holding services with accompanying additional contracts with three banks. These contracts expire on 31 December 2022, and DFØ would therefore like to enter into new framework agreements with banks by May 2022, so that all government entities are able to have a new framework agreement by 31 December 2022. We aim to announce the contest in November 2021.
