The Swedish government has proposed a change for Swedesurvey. The parliament is expected to take decision on the change in June. The proposal is that the international services will be concentrated to Lantmäteriet, the Swedish mapping, cadastral and land registration authority.
The reason for the proposal is Swedesurvey´s limited possibilities to recruit required personnel from Lantmäteriet for the international consulting services the company is providing.
Ongoing projects and projects that Swedesurvey recently have been awarded or tendered for will be accomplished without any changes and at the same time no further bid proposals will be submitted. The change will thus be made gradually.
