Alf Xabier Josefsen is a Doctor in Administrative Science candidate at the University of Lapland. Josefsen has benefited the Marine and Offshore industry using his engineering experience combined with the research in structures and hydrodynamics. As a legal-project manager, Josefsen has been active in taking his cutting-edge ideas to different projects based on business life. At the EU level, he has researched Contract Management and Public Procurement solutions to increase control and improve performance.

Josefsen's research at the University of Lapland scrutinizes the roles of Public Procurement and its Contract management. His research suggests the need for a greater understanding of engagement in public procurement strategy and management and the necessity for greater triangulation in public procurement research. He asserts that the anticipation of the risks in regulatory and management will optimize the contracting system to reduce its acts of corruption. Josefsen reveals that the usual controls apply in public procurement systems must be accompanied by other types of measurements, which cover not only legal aspects but also of the internal management system and official behaviors.
