TeliaSonera has completed its procurement plan for 2003 to cover its requirements for the management and development of applications and infrastructure services.
In 2002, about 70 nominated IT/Telecom suppliers were contracted. For 2003, the number that TeliaSonera will sign contracts with has been limited to just 20.
Other aims for 2003 are to limit the Group's purchasing to those selected and to cut down on the percentage of hourly-rate based resources purchased.
Instead, the company is concentrating on procurement of defined projects and studies at fixed prices, restricting the exposure to risk and offering better management of costs.
