The ONF (Office National des ForĂȘts - National Forest Office) is the French organization which manages over 12 million hectares of forest, of which 4.5 (equivalent to a third of the total area of forest) are located in France and 8 in overseas countries (mostly in Guyana). The ONF is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Ministry for the Environment and Sustainable Development. The ONF employs around 11,000 professionals throughout France, covering the economic, environmental and social requirements of the clients and partners with whom they are associated in sustained management of natural resources, with regards to the three key principles of: economic efficiency of wood, noble and recyclable materials; environmental management, by way of actions which go beyond basic conservation (management of biological reserves, development of biodiversity); social responsibility and prevention of risks such as the forest fires which engulf the Mediterranean landscape each year.

"The new site has made the [tender] process easier and more secure for all participants. It covers the whole procurement process from start to finish, and it is all encapsulated in a single piece of technology. eTendering is fully embedded in NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency policy and is now used for all its procurement exercises. It makes the Agency a leader in the adoption of eProcurement systems in the public sector."
