Notice - Statement
IOM is the world leading intergovernmental UN Organization for migration. As part of the United Nations System IOM has developed its own policies, rules and regulations, in the light of which operates in the most efficient, effective and ethical manner. In the framework of its activities aiming to provide assistance and support to the migrant population IOM procures a wide range of goods, works and services, strongly committed in observing the highest ethical standards and guided by values as:
• Efficiency and economy;
• Equal opportunity and open competition;
• Transparency in the process and adequate documentation; and
• Highest ethical standards in all procurement activities.
It has come to our attention that third persons appear falsely as cooperating with, or working on behalf of our Mission. IOM would like to clarify that it does not cooperate in any way with private procurement consultants nor develops any kind of relationship with them that would contravene its policy on corruption and conflict of interest, pursuant to the IOM General Procurement Principles and the IOM Code of Conduct for Suppliers.
IOM procurement ethics focuses on zero tolerance on corruption, avoiding any form conflict of interest and honest representation of supplier’s capabilities. IOM upholds honesty, integrity and fairness in all aspects of its business, and expects the same in its relationships with its vendors. The highest ethical standards shall be employed in all procurement transactions, and Vendors shall be chosen based on IOM’s procurement policies and defined selection criteria.
In order to ensure the above, IOM has established a secure communication channel to enable vendors and service providers to raise concerns confidentially and responsibly. If any supplier has questions about the Code of Conduct or wishes to report a questionable behavior or possible violation of the Code of Conduct, the supplier is encouraged and should contact IOM Athens at email address email@example.com.
