The Supreme Administrative Court confirms the allocation decision for municipal adult education – AcadeMedia and the City of Stockholm can start to sign contracts

The Supreme Administrative Court of Sweden has rejected all applications for review of the procurement for municipal adult education. This means that AcadeMedia’s companies that participated in the procurement can begin to sign contracts with the City of Stockholm.

As communicated in the press release 10 November 2019, these contracts are replacement contacts for AcadeMedia. The current contracts with the City of Stockholm have an annual turnover of approximately SEK 180 million. The new contracts are estimated to have a turnover in line with previous years. The contract period is two years with an option to extend for a further two years starting 1st January 2021 continuing until 31st December 2024 at the latest. The contracts were awarded based on criteria related to quality and fixed prices.

  • We are happy that we now have the long-term conditions to, together with the City of Stockholm, meet the social challenges we have ahead of us. In the wake of the corona pandemic, unemployment is rising rapidly, especially among young people and those born abroad. Municipal adult education plays a crucial role in strengthening the adaptability of individuals who already are or at risk of being unemployed. Municipal adult education also contributes to faster integration as well as ensuring that the business community’s and the city’s skills needs are met, says Christer Hammar, Head of AcadeMedia Adult Education.

Facts: AcadeMedia’s companies that can sign contracts with the City of Stockholm are Eductus, Hermods, Kompetensutvecklingsinstitutet, Movant, and NTI-skolan.
