Mandate roles ensure that the persons preparing and sending grant applications have the right to represent the organisation.

You can log into the e-service with your personal banking IDs, a mobile certificate or a certificate card after you have been authorised. In addition to e-Authorizations, organisations need their business ID to use the e-services.

The mandate for transactions required when using the regional administration e-services is called Työllisyyden, ympäristön, elinkeinotoiminnan ja liikenteen valtioavustusten hakeminen (Applying for government grant for employment, environment, business activities and transport). The mandate theme is specified by the identifier OHJAUS.

Persons without separate authorisation can act on behalf of an organisation only if they have an existing mandate for transactions or a right based on register data.

The authorisation is subject to the valid instructions of the service.
