All items displayed on UN WebBuy have been selected through international tenders complying strictly with United Nations financial rules and procedures.
In addition, UN WebBuy suppliers, freight forwarders and other business partners maintain their own data on the system, thereby ensuring low transaction cost and efficient processing of client requests.
The system currently has approximately 4,000 active users generating hundreds of quotations automatically online every week.
How it works
The UN WebBuy system is an easy-to-use and configurable interface, requiring no additional software. Suppliers enter and update technical information on available products using UN WebBuy’s e-tender feature.
At any time and in moments UN WebBuy customers can generate tailor-made, on-line quotations including freight and cargo insurance to the required destination. Quotations are saved for future reference and documentation can be produced in Acrobat PDF format.
Orders are placed directly through the website and their progress through the various logistic stages can be monitored using the "track and trace" feature.
UN WebBuy is open to all organizations in the United Nations System and development partners, such as non-governmental organizations, international financial institutions and their borrowers, and donor governments.
