How to Engage with our Procurement Process

Our Procurement Strategy

The US ITER Project Office (USIPO) based at Oak Ridge National Laboratory conducts its tendering process for in-kind design and equipment contributions in accordance with US law and policy, our DOE Contract and the appropriate procurement arrangement with the ITER Organization. Most acquisitions are conducted as competitive, best value procurements, with evaluations based on technical and price factors. Awards are made to financially responsible, technically responsive and capable suppliers worldwide.

Typical technical factors for evaluation include the level of understanding and capability of meeting requirements, the supplier’s quality program, and past performance/previous experience.
