The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS)

How we operate

UNOPS is a self-financing organization. Our business model is built around the delivery of services that increase the effectiveness of peace and security, humanitarian and development projects.

Our service lines focus on sustainability and national capacity development, while our financing promotes lean, effective delivery. Our flexible structure and global reach means that we can quickly respond to partners’ needs, while gaining the benefits of economies of scale. 

If we can help our UN partners to further improve their delivery with the support of our specialized services, we help to deliver more for less - more value for money.
