DESCRIPTION

TITLE: StartOff
CONCEPT: Enabling the public sector to describe the problem they need solved, not requiring them to pre-define the solution. 

StartOff connects buyers and startups and supports them through the process

Enabling the public sector to describe the problem they need solved, not requiring them to pre-define the solution.

StartOff is a framework for carrying out startup-friendly procurements. StartOff offers guidance and project support to the client and supplier in a facilitated process.

The scheme is administered by DFØ and is carried out in collaboration with the Norwegian Directorate for Digitalisation and the Supplier Development Program.

Compared to other schemes, such as innovation contracts, innovative procurement, innovation partnerships, StartOff deals with more limited issues with shorter project lengths and smaller contract amounts. A StartOff project can result in a further acquisition, but the StartOff project itself is limited to 18 weeks of developing an MVP.

LOCAL LANGUAGE DESCRIPTION: Norsk

StartOff kobler innkjøpere og startups sammen og loser dem gjennom prosessen

StartOff er et rammeverk for gjennomføring av startupvennlige anskaffelser. StartOff tilbyr veiledning og prosjektstøtte til oppdragsgiver og leverandør i en tilrettelagt prosess.

Ordningen administreres av DFØ og utføres i samarbeid med Digitaliseringsdirektoratet og Leverandørutviklingsprogrammet.

Sammenlignet med andre ordninger, som eksempelvis innovasjonskontrakter, innovative anskaffelser, innovasjonspartnerskap, omhandler StartOff mer avgrensede problemstillinger med kortere prosjektlengde og mindre kontraktsbeløp. Et StartOff-prosjekt kan resultere i en ytterligere anskaffelse, men selve StartOff-prosjektet begrenser seg til 18 uker med utvikling av en MVP.
