Transportation and Hospitality

Travel and Shipping Services

The IMF provides a range of travel services to facilitate a large volume of international business travel to more than 189 countries. In addition, the Fund provides relocation services to staff upon appointment and/or repatriation as well as to staff who are posted outside the US and wish to ship or store their household goods. These services are provided with the assistance of vendors but the IMF maintains a core staff of transportation experts who oversee and ensure the smooth running of the operation as well as:

  • Develop and oversee travel and shipping policies
  • Play a key role in often complex contract negotiations with airlines, hotels, and other travel and shipping service providers
  • Ensure that vendor companies provide the appropriate standard of service quality and customer satisfaction
  • Report on trends and data associated with budgets for these areas

Hospitality and Event Services

Hospitality and event services includes a number of essential services to promote a good working environment and facilitate the conduct of important business meetings and conferences, including: food and catering services (cafeterias, bistros, private dining), event and conference planning, audio visual services (e.g., video and audio conferencing, presentations), hotel services, and mail and messenger services. Most of these services are also outsourced to vendor companies, with management oversight by IMF staff who:

  • Plan and manage a number of major events each year, often with complex requirements involving sensitive protocol considerations
  • Oversee vendor performance on hundreds of routine smaller events and activities
  • Ensure that vendor companies provide the appropriate standard of service quality and customer satisfaction
  • Manage contracts and budgets for hospitality and event services
