Applicable to the Contracts for Procurement of Goods and Services Awarded by the Domain of the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology as of 1.1.1998 (with Amendments of 16.4.2013). T&C's of suppliers are expressly excluded.
Basic Procedural Principles:
The client only awards public commissions for services in Switzerland to tenderers who comply with job security regulations and the conditions of work for employees, and provide equal payment for men and women. The bidder and the instructing party undertake to take all necessary measures to avoid corruption, in particular that no payments, gifts or other advantage will be offered or accepted. Should this integrity clause be disregarded, the contractor must pay a contract penalty. This will amount to 10 % of the contract value, a minimum of 3 000 CHF per contravention. The bidder should take note that a contravention of the integrity clause generally results in the annulment of the tender and the premature termination of the contract for important reasons by the instructing Party.
