IEEE's core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. This requires a commitment to innovation and excellence on the part of IEEE suppliers as well. In addition, IEEE has a number of conditions that all current and potential suppliers must meet. Below is a summary of the standard practices and information that IEEE requires from its suppliers.
All suppliers are expected to abide by the IEEE Contractor Guidelines and Code of Conduct and may be required to enter into a formal written agreement with the IEEE for services.
