Istekki is an in-house company
Istekki Oy is a non-profit in-house company owned by its customers. This means close partnerships and our customers guiding the operations of the company through decision-making, for example. We also cooperate with private sector companies and seek services for our customers from the market through competitive tendering processes in compliance with the Act on Public Procurement and Concession Contracts.
What does the term ‘in-house company’ mean?
In-house companies are businesses that are jointly or separately owned by public operators, such as municipalities, joint municipalities, wellbeing services counties and the state. In other words, an in-house company is owned by the organisations that use its services. For this reason, the cooperation between in-house companies and their owners is close and the owner customers also steer the operations.
An in-house company such as Istekki is an in-house entity for its owners, which is why the owners can make procurements from the in-house company without competitive tendering. An in-house company is a joint procurement unit for its owners which must adhere to the Act on Public Procurement and Concession Contracts. In other words, it must organise competitive tendering for procurements in compliance with the Act on behalf of its owner customers. Particularly through competitive tendering, in-house companies also cooperate closely with private sector companies.

As stated in our articles of association, our company does not aim to generate profit or distribute dividends to its owners. Instead, it strives to develop and produce cost-efficient services at a high level of quality.
Istekki provides services to its customers by producing them or outsourcing them to subcontractors that are selected through competitive tendering pursuant to the Act on Public Procurement and Concession Contracts. Private sector companies are important partners from which we annually tender and procure goods and services equivalent to roughly 70% of our turnover. We use the services of more than a thousand suppliers. We utilise a life cycle management model for procurement which accounts for the strategic planning and category management of procurements, competitive tendering and the management of the suppliers.
