Simap.ch: The Swiss public procurement platform

The website simap.ch offers a large number of public calls for tender in which private companies can take part. Here is an introduction.

Simap.ch is the online platform used by the Confederation, cantons and communes in the public procurement sector. Public sector authorities awarding contracts can use the platform very easily to publish calls for tender and various related documents.

SMEs and other interested tenderers benefit from an overview of calls for tender throughout Switzerland. They can download publications and documentation or ask questions directly through a forum.

Saving time and money

One of the main advantages of the simap.ch platform is that it relieves procurement departments of a significant share of their administrative workload. And companies have the advantage, in terms of paper publications, of being up-to-date, being more efficient and making significant savings.
