Overview of TBC's tendering procedures
TBC tenders for over 85% of its purchases. The TBC tendering process is fully explained in its Procurement Manual. (English / Thai).
Open tenders are issued for:
1. Regular camp supplies where the supplier is responsible for delivery to camps.
Tendered commodities include cooking oil, charcoal, salt, and fish paste. There are two tenders per annum for each camp. Where possible deliveries to camp are required each month, but due to bad road conditions to some camps it is necessary to deliver wet season supplies during the dry season, to be stockpiled in the camp.
2. Rice (25% White Rice)
