The IBM Global Procurement Ombudsman process
The purpose of the Ombudsman Office is to provide an avenue for suppliers and others to address procurement-related concerns and issues that, for any reason, cannot be resolved satisfactorily through normal business channels.
As an objective and impartial organization, the Ombudsman assists in resolving procurement-related concerns and issues. The intent of the Ombudsman Process is to foster more open,effective, and productive relationships with our suppliers. If you have a concern, we want to hear from you.
Do your best to define your concern. Then raise the concern to whomever you feel most comfortable: Local IBM Procurement or The IBM Ombudsman.
The IBM Global Ombudsman has representation worldwide including the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, Africa, Asia Pacific, Australia, and the Middle East.
Concerns will be handled promptly with care, respect, and sensitivity. You may raise a concern by contacting an Ombudsman directly. Please refer to the contact information below:
