Amgros was established by the former Danish counties as a procurement service for the healthcare area in 1990. Since 1st January 2007, the organisation has managed pharmaceuticals procurement for all public hospitals in Denmark.

Together with other healthcare stakeholders, Amgros’ mission is to provide the conditions for better healthcare. The core task of Amgros is to ensure that Danish public hospitals have the right medicine and the right medical devices. They do this by organising and conducting efficient tendering procedures, negotiations and procurement for their owners in the Danish regions. We do all this in close collaboration with many other healthcare stakeholders. This means Amgros and their partners save Danish society billions of DKK.

Suppliers submit their bids through Amgros’ electronic tendering system. This means that suppliers can submit bids and keep abreast with ongoing calls for tenders in a single place. The tendering system also helps secure suppliers transparency and equal treatment. They use different instruments in the tendering procedures, negotiations and procurement, depending on how long the medicine has been on the market and the area of treatment the medicine concerns.
