Here at AFD, we monitor the proper use of our financing. To do so, we impart the general principles of our competitive bidding procedures to the contracting authorities which receive AFD financing. We provide all the corresponding template documents as well. We also offer an e-learning platform to our contracting authorities (and those supporting them) where they receive training on all procurements steps to follow when AFD finances contracts in foreign countries.
AFD Group would like to develop balanced relationships with its suppliers, in line with its commitments.
Three key principles guide our procurement approach: fairness and transparency in access to AFD’s public procurement contracts and in our supplier selection, the aim to find the best cost-quality-risk ratio for the parties, and a commitment to sustainable and solidarity-based purchasing.
