Procurement and Contracting: Guiding Principles
Institutional procurement methods vary depending on the estimated value and/or nature of goods and services being procured. These procurements methods are: open competitive bidding, limited tendering, shopping, and direct or sole source contracting. Where open competitive bidding is used, procurement notices are advertised through this site and/or relevant publications or websites.
With due consideration to economy and efficiency, ADB shall procure quality goods and/or services for its operations at the most competitive market prices available using the most competitive procurement method applicable and giving due regard to the reputation of the supplier or provider, promptness of delivery, terms of payment and availability of adequate warranty and servicing facilities, among others.
In all its institutional procurement activities, ADB staff is guided by the principles of fairness, transparency and integrity.
