Procurement at the IPI

We procure goods and services in accordance with the principles of public procurement law – in a fair and transparent manner.


The IPI is subject to the Federal Act on Public Procurement (PPA) and applies the General Terms and Conditions of the Confederation (available in German, French or Italian). We are committed to procuring in a socially responsible manner. It is therefore highly important to us that health and safety regulations, working conditions and environment law are respected, men and women are treated equally and corrupt dealings are avoided.

You can find information on contracts we have awarded as follows:

  • Planned and awarded contracts which exceed the WTO threshold of 230,000 Swiss francs are published on, the information system for public procurement in Switzerland.
