Doing Business with the Embassy
Companies wishing to do business with the Embassy should provide the Procurement Section with a copy of a Vendor Registration Form (PDF 9.64 KB), their references, company profile, brochures and catalogs in English. The documents should be in Acrobat PDF format and submitted to this email address: BaghdadGSOProcurement@state.gov
- The Procurement Section of the Embassy is the only office authorized to place orders for goods and services on behalf of the U.S. Government. All orders from other persons are considered unauthorized and private, and the Government accepts no responsibility for paying those orders.
- The Embassy is required to provide vendors with a copy of a Purchase Order Form OF-347 (PDF) or contract signed by a Contracting Officer for all orders valued above the equivalent of USD 500.00. The Purchase Order/Contract is the order, and vendors should not attempt to deliver goods/services prior to receiving one of these documents. The Government has no obligation to receive or pay for any goods/services without a valid contract.
- The Government does not make advance payments – payment is made exclusively after receipt of the goods/services.
- Payment is made in local currency, i.e. Iraqi Dinars or in U.S. Dollars by Electronic Funds Transfer (ETF).
- By U.S. law, the Embassy makes payment within 30 days from receipt of a proper invoice.
- Invoicing instructions are available here (PDF 40.17 KB)
The Embassy does business only with duly registered companies. If a company wants to do business with the Embassy, it must be able to present a copy of the company’s registration with the pertinent Iraqi ministry.
