History Ordered works shown in the contract with the company Concrete sums for concrete tasks Supervision conducted by the inspection board Satisfactory mark – contractual sum Good and very good 10% and 20% bonus for company
History Prices established by mutual agreements with companies Until 1991 punched cards to describe works/objects of the contractual tasks (addendums) Cards – concrete works, number of repetitions within certain period, concrete prices (not a current practice)
History Hyperinflation of the beginning of 90s Prices for works changed every month Factors/coefficients were used, difficult to estimate Coefficients for usability, level of difficulty New technologies, new approach
History Acquaintance with the Finnish system -> change (ca 1991) The manual for green areas classification and maintenance in habitats -> translated and implemented Classification into 4 categories of maintenance intensity. Based on result. Same classification used nowadays, constantly upgraded for procurement purposes.
History 1996 the procurement law. Number of repetitions and description of concrete works discarded.
