Applying good procurement policy
Competition is the foundation of good procurement policies. Open, transparent and fair procedures for awarding public sector contracts for the procurement of consultancy, as well as goods/plants, works and services help create dependable and stable market conditions for private enterprises. They also form the basis for establishing accountability, enhancing the cost-effective use of public funds. This is a matter of concern for Nefco, its owners, and its countries of operation.
Nefco’s requirements for procurements, managed by Nefco or by Nefco’s clients, for both public-sector and private-sector operations are sound economy, cost-efficiency, transparency, and accountability. Competitive tendering methods are used to ensure the correct use of funds. Where Nefco procure consultants for expert advice and services and Nefco’s clients procure contractors for public projects related to modernisation and repair of municipal infrastructure services, such as heating, water supply, and wastewater treatment, or schools, day-care centres and hospitals, the focus is always on high-quality performance. Procurement procedures are flexible, transparent, and require accountability.
Open, transparent and fair procedures
Transparency is at the heart of all of our procurement procedures. As such, Nefco ensures proper use of funds and resources are managed with the highest level of integrity. Nefco demands high ethical standards and transparent actions from clients, consultants, service providers, suppliers and contractors.
