1- Competitive bidding and the process of selection

Whenever practicable, procurement is effected on the basis of international competitive and fair bidding. The PTS at WMO often selects the potential vendors through its own database, the HMEI and UNGM. For contracts with a value greater than CHF 100 000 or equivalent, prospective suppliers are sent an Invitation to Bid (ITB) (in the case of goods), or a Request for Proposal (RFP) (in the case of services). Bids must be submitted in an approved manner; as indicated clearly in all our tender documents. The technical bids/proposals are opened at a Public Bid Opening Meeting. This is usually indicated in all our tender documents. Selection is made on the basis of conformity to specifications, technical acceptability, quality, delivery schedules and price.
