For Procurement Professionals

You have BIG questions to ask.
And a BIGGER decision to make.

Anyone can deliver a flight plan or permit. But do they have the knowledge and global resources to fully support your flight operation—even if the mission faces an unplanned challenge? Do they have a plan for emergency management and disaster preparedness? What types of redundancies do they have in their systems? Are they compliant with FCPA? Are they proactively safeguarding your sensitive data?

Choosing the right partner is an important decision, and we know you have a lot of questions to ask.

Whether you are gathering requirements for an RFP, or are ready to send one, we are looking forward to speaking with you.

Ethics and Compliance

Depending on the scenario, a so called “facilitation fee” paid to an airport employee may be considered a bribe under international anti-bribery laws. And if your handler pays a bribe on your behalf, you may be liable.

At Universal, we’ve set a high standard among trip support providers with our industry-leading Ethics and Compliance program. By partnering with us, you can be confident we are taking the right steps to help keep your organization in compliance.
