Swedish term or phrase: upphandling till / gälla till
Hi again,

The following sentence appears at the beginning of a document describing a construction job, written as part of a bid invitation:

"För entreprenaden gäller även särskilda överenskommelser vid upphandlingen till denna handling."

I can't tell how "till denna handling" relates to the rest of the sentence: should it be parsed as

1) "gäller ... till denna handling" ("apply to this document"?)

or

2) "upphandling till denna handling" (not entirely sure what this would mean)

?

The problem with the first interpretation is that 1) I can't find many examples of the phrase "gälla till", and 2) the phrase beginning with "för ..." already looks like it could be the complement of "gälla"

Thanks for any assistance

Explanation:
I wonder if the final "handling" might even be an accidental left-over in the drafting, and that "till denna" refers back to "entreprenaden".
