Abstract [en]

This master thesis evaluates the possibility for Semcon AB to establish a business within the public sector of Uppsala. The need and prerequisites for technical life science consultant services has been investigated by interviewing experts in their field. The study is explanatory and contributes with an understanding of the current situation and the outlook for consultants in in the public sector, with Region Uppsala as the targeted customer.

The results show that the need for consultants lies within IT, logistics, medtech, and construction. A consultant should preferably have a combination of these competences. Another possibility is to aid the public sector with the difficulties in specifying the requirements of a procurement. There are different ways of establishing a business with Region Uppsala. Either by a framework agreement, as a subcontractor, or by innovation procurement.

One aspect of successful collaboration between a consultant company and the public sector is the attitudes toward consultants. The result indicates generally positive attitudes. Despite this a concern of knowledge disappearing when the assignment is finished exists. Therefore, transparency as well as constant feedback and evaluation is highly important.
