These instructions define, among other things, how the procurement process is organized, the role played by the various process participants and the supplier selection criteria. Suppliers are selected in tenders, which allows the Bank to use objective selection criteria. To ensure transparency of the procurement process, the substantive and commercial evaluations of bids are done by independent Bank units. The chief risk ensuing from inappropriate cooperation with suppliers involves a limitation on the ability to render banking services. [GRI 103-1, 103-2, 103-3]
