A purchase orderer requested an IFI to finance a purchase of specified equipment. The purchase orderer who has specialized knowledge of the equipment was required by the IFI to provide several quotations of such equipment by different suppliers to ascertain a fair value of cost of purchase. Based on established industry standards of the equipment, the IFI agreed to purchase the specified equipment based on one of the few given quotations. The quotation thus becomes the purchase cost in the Murabahah sale to the purchase orderer. This selected quotation shall be disclosed to the purchase orderer.
