The goal for UN Geneva is to provide efficient, effective and expert procurement services, while achieving best value for money and ensuring a competitive, fair and transparent process in accordance with established regulations, rules and procedures. UN Geneva provides purchasing and contracting services to several UN offices located in Europe, Africa and Middle East. The United Nations represents a global market of over USD 17 billion annually for all types of products and services.

Through the United Nations Global Marketplace, a tool to shortlist suppliers for competitive bidding, UN procurement staff are brought together with the vendor community. The UNGM also enables vendors to keep abreast of upcoming tender notices. The Marketplace facilitates the interchange of vendor information within the UN system as information is made available to all UN organizations. 

Through our services and marketplace, vendors have an excellent springboard to introduce products and services to many UN organizations, countries and regions.
