IHI publishes calls for tender for the supply of goods and services.

Interested economic operators need to apply to an IHI procurement procedure or respond to a call for expressions of interest to be preselected as a potential candidate for restricted invitations to tender.

IHI does not respond to unsolicited submissions.


IHI JU applies the relevant provisions of the financial rules applicable to the general budget of the Union, (Regulation (EU, Euratom) No 2018/1046 of 18 July 2018) for the conduct of its procurement activities.

Calls for tender worth €140,000 or more

IHI is part of the Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) database, an eTendering platform for the management of procurement procedures. On this platform are published the procurement documents and questions and answers for procurement procedures of a value of €140,000 or more.

Please follow the links to access all procurement documents which are visible and downloadable. Users must log in to use certain options of the eTendering platform, such as 'subscribing' to a procurement to receive notifications, including the publication of updated documents, and to ask questions related to a given procedure.

It is the tenderer's responsibility to check for updates to the procurement documents on the eTendering platform during the tendering period.

Calls for tender worth €15,000 to < €140,000

For tenders in this range, IHI must conduct a 'negotiated procedure' and consult at least three or five candidates, depending on the value.

IHI does not publish a plan of all tenders in this range for the coming year. It may organise calls at short notice. Please note that IHI is unable to offer a mailing-list service or a notification of the launch of individual tenders.

For tenders in this range, IHI is obliged to publish ex-ante advertisements (advance notices) of individual procurement procedure for a minimum of two weeks on this webpage, to allow suppliers to express their interest in the call for tender. Please refer to the table below for ex-ante publication of current tenders in this range.

Suppliers who wish to express their interest in any published call for tender are requested to send the following information to the contact point as stipulated in the relevant ex-ante advertisement:

  • the company's name and address;
  • relevant business area;
  • title and reference of the tender of interest.

Calls for expressions of interest

Calls for expressions of interest are a means of preselecting candidates who may be invited to submit tenders in response to possible future restricted invitations to tender.

Upon examination of the applications, IHI draws up a list of potential contractors valid for 3 years. Any interested person or company can submit an application at any time during the period of validity of this list, except for the last 3 months.

IHI will use this list for contracts with an estimated value of over €60,000 but below the threshold for the Public Procurement Directive, which is €139,000 for service and supply contracts.

Where a specific contract is to be awarded, IHI will send the procurement documents either to all the candidates on the list, or to certain selected candidates who meet the preselection criteria for the contract.
