JHS 166 General Terms and Conditions of Governmental IT Procurement (JIT 2015) (abolished)
The Advisory Committee on Information Management in Public Administration (JUHTA) recommends that government agencies, bodies and funds, unincorporated state enterprises as well as municipalities and joint municipal authorities use the attached Terms and Conditions of Public IT Procurement (JIT 2015) when procuring IT products and services. This recommendation consists of the attached agreement terms and conditions. This recommendation supersedes the 2007 Terms and Conditions of Government IT Procurement (JIT 2007).
The General Terms and Conditions of Governmental IT Procurement (JIT 2015) have been prepared as part of the JHS system and published as the recommendation JHS 166. The Public Administration Recommendation System (JHS) was abolished when the Act on Information Management in Public Administration (906/2019) entered into force on 1 January 2020.
The content of the JIT terms and conditions has not been maintained since 2015. Requirements arising from data protection legislation (EU's General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and the Act on the Processing of Personal Data in Criminal Matters and in Connection with Maintaining National Security 1054/2018) and the Act on Information Management in Public Administration have not been taken into consideration in the terms and conditions. Requirements arising from various sanctions, including those imposed against Russia by the Council of the European Union, have also not been considered in the terms and conditions. The Ministry of Finance urges contracting authorities that utilise the JIT terms and conditions to ensure that up-to-date responsibilities and obligations arising from legislation and sanctions are defined in their procurement agreements. For this reason, the JIT terms and conditions should not be included in their original form in invitations to tender and procurement agreements.
The Ministry of Finance will examine the amendment needs of the JIT terms and conditions during 2022.
