Procurement Process


AU-IBAR invites Expression of Interest from business entities/individuals as a first indication that they would like to engage in further bidding for supplies and services. It also provides AU-IBAR with a preliminary idea of value that can be weighed against AU-IBAR's expectations.

The EOI includes not only a range for the potential price of services/goods , but also the anticipated timing for closing the transaction, the transaction structure and any other areas that would help AU-IBAR decide if the qualified contractor would be a good fit.
