FIDIC publishes business practice documents such as policy statements, position papers, guidelines, training manuals and training resource kits in the areas of management systems (quality management, risk management, business integrity management, environment management, sustainability) and business processes (consultant selection, quality-based selection, tendering, procurement, insurance, liability, technology transfer, capacity building).
