How can I become an ADB supplier? (corporate procurement)

Guidance for suppliers of ADB's institutional requirements

  • Individuals and firms interested in supplying goods or services for the institutional requirements of ADB must register in the ADB Supplier Information Management Portal.
  • Suppliers must be a citizen of or incorporated in an ADB member country and not be on the ADB sanction list or the sanction list of another multilateral development bank.
  • Registration gives suppliers an opportunity to be in ADB's database and to maintain close collaboration with ADB.
  • Approval of registration in the supplier management system is neither a commitment from ADB to invite registered suppliers to bid nor a guarantee from ADB to award a contract. But it is a pre-requisite to the conclusion of any contract or purchase order for the provision of institutional goods and services.
  • Prospective suppliers will be requested to provide:
    • General information such as complete name, nature of business, year established, address, contact details and contact persons.
    • Scanned copies of applicable documents (curriculum vitae and valid ID, business registration, articles of incorporation or partnership, memorandum of association, legal documents indicating current officers of the firm).
    • Complete copies of company financial documents (audited financial statements for the past two years, annual reports).
    • Financial data and bank details; and
    • Completed ADB supplier questionnaire.

If you are interested to become an institutional (corporate) supplier of ADB, please send us a message of intent by email at [email protected]. Our team will send you an invitation to register through the supplier portal.

After suppliers register

  • Upon successful completion and approval of your application through the supplier portal, you will be given a username and password to access the supplier portal, which will enable you to manage your profile, receive alerts and notifications, and monitor your transactions.
  • Registered suppliers can participate in the solicitation and bidding process with a greater chance of being short-listed than those that are not registered.
