Abstract

This report was undertaken at the request of the Management and maintenance

department of Swedish National Road Authority (Vägverket Region Sydöst) in

Jönköping.

In 1992, the management and maintenance of Swedish roads were laid out on

external contractors. When putting out a tender for the work, the foundation is

from a national set of rules which are in constant change. This report is limited to

winter road upkeep.

The trend in the invitation for tenders is that it is moving from the more

conventional executional demands towards the less controlling demands. The

downside of functional, less controlling demands is that it is difficult to articulate

how to measure them. The order authority therefore has to find ways to make

sure to get what has been paid for.

In connection to the invitation for tender of winter road upkeep for 2005, the new

set of rules, ATB Vinter 2003 was deployed.

The main purpose of this thesis is to see which the big changes in the set of rules

are and how these changes affect the organisation and activities of the contractor.

It is also studied how the changes in execution is perceived by road users and how

it affects the possibilities of the contractor to come as a newcomer to a new area

of administration.

Interviews and examination of sets of rules has led to a list of a number of

changes that the contractors feel affect their work in any sense.

Views from road users that have come in to the order authority have been

scrutinized to see how they have experienced the change. When selecting which

areas of administration to examine, care was taken to ensure that one was where

the same contractor secured a renewed contract for the area over the gap of

changing rules and the other one was area where the contractor was a newcomer.

The result shows a number of changes and how these affect both the contractors

and the road users.

The report describes how winter road upkeep is maintained in the south of

Sweden and the cooperation between buyer and contractor.
