Procurement files

On this page, we share our main procurement files in the field of digitisation, so you can see how we work or find inspiration. We would like to offer the following advice: a procurement file is always linked to a specific project, so it is best to carry out your own analysis regarding what you include in your dossier. If you wish to copy certain elements from the VIAA dossiers, this is of course possible, but VIAA cannot accept any responsibility for the results of your project. We are learning continuously as well, which means that the newer dossiers have also evolved compared to the older ones.
