IOM Helsinki regularly sources goods, works and services from Finnish and international suppliers, contractors and service providers. IOM upholds honesty, integrity and fairness in all aspects of its business, and expects the same in its relationships with its vendors. IOM General Procurement Principles, Award Criteria and Processes are guided by:
- quality of goods, works and services,
- efficiency and economy,
- equal opportunity and open competition,
- transparency in the process and adequate documentation,
- and highest ethical standards in all procurement activities.
Quotations and proposals are evaluated for compliance with technical specifications, delivery schedule, price, payment terms, and after-sale services. Contracts are awarded to Bidders with the lowest compliant offers providing the best value for money based on required technical specifications. In addition, all IOM vendors must adhere to the IOM Code of Conduct for Suppliers, which outlines IOM’s strict policies against conflict of interest, fraud, corruption, and the exploitation of child labor.
