Financial status and key figures

In 2013, the volume of central procurement implemented under Hansel’s framework agreements continued to grow, reaching €695 million (€687 million in 2012). This represented a growth of €8 million, or 1.2 per cent, over the previous year.

In monetary terms, the growth was most significant in the sectors of financial management, IT services, travel management, and material and facility administration procurement. The sectors that fell compared to the previous year were energy, IT equipment, and office procurement. In the energy sector, figures are greatly affected by electricity prices and weather conditions.

Net sales in 2013 totalled €8.7 million (€8.5 million in 2012). Net sales consisted of €8.3 million in service fees for framework agreement sales (€8.3 million in 2012), €368,000 in income from tendering-related consulting (€173,000), and €58,000 in other income (€16,000).
