We request our potential suppliers to complete and submit online the supplier contact form and the environmental management questionnaire given below as part of the supplier pre-qualification process. We appreciate if the companies could submit separate forms for each group of product they supply: basic commodities, motor transport and spare parts, medical supplies and equipment, general stores and equipment. UNRWA supports the UN Global Compact Initiative - put forward on 31 January 1999 by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan - that would bring companies together with UN agencies, labour and civil society to support ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment, and anti-corruption. We encourage our suppliers to sign up with the UN Global Compact Initiative. Consequently we have included environmental factors in our pre-qualification criteria for approval of suppliers and even in our tendering and tender evaluation process.
