The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS)

Doing business with UNOPS

Annually, UNOPS procures around $1 billion worth of goods and services in order to support the delivery of our projects. We do this with more than 5,000 suppliers from over 170 countries, including many micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.

Our suppliers play a vital role in our efforts to help people build better lives and countries achieve peace and sustainable development.

‘Doing business with UNOPS’

Learning outcomes:

  • Improve knowledge of what UNOPS procures, how we procure and how to become a vendor to supply to our organization;
  • Enhance awareness on ethics and fraud prevention in procurement, including ethical standards of UNOPS personnel and ethical behaviour of suppliers;
  • Learn about UNOPS vendor sanctions policy and the consequences for vendors that engage in proscribed practices;
  • Learn about sustainable development and UNOPS approach to sustainability.


UNOPS has developed an online course with the aim of improving the knowledge of our current and potential suppliers on how to do business with us, including our expectations on sustainability and ethics. We strive to enhance our procurement outcomes through additional competition, transparency and value for money.

The online course is free of charge and is available in English, French and Spanish. Accessible through standard web browsers on computers and portable devices, the course takes approximately 1–1.5 hours to complete.
