UNOPS

Vendor sanctions

UNOPS, as a subsidiary organ of the United Nations, strives to provide public goods in the development, humanitarian and peacebuilding areas. As such, in spending public resources, UNOPS aims to meet the highest standards of integrity and competency, and demands no less from those who wish to work with UNOPS in carrying out its activities. UNOPS, therefore, will not accept to work with any entity that does not meet those standards of integrity and competency that UNOPS promulgates within its policy and operational framework.

UNOPS is a steward of public funds and therefore both UNOPS and its vendors must adhere to the highest ethical standards, both during the bidding process and throughout the execution of a contract. UNOPS has zero tolerance for proscribed practices, including:

  • Corrupt practice: the offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting, directly or indirectly, anything of value to influence improperly the actions of another party

  • Fraudulent practice: any act or omission, including a misrepresentation, that knowingly or recklessly misleads, or attempts to mislead, a party to obtain a financial or other benefit or to avoid an obligation

  • Coercive practice: an act or omission that impairs or harms, or threatens to impair or harm, directly or indirectly, any party or the property of the party to improperly influence the actions of a party

  • Collusive practice: an arrangement between two or more parties designed to achieve an improper purpose, including influencing improperly the actions of another party

  • Unethical practice: conduct or behaviour that is contrary to the conflict of interest, gifts and hospitality, post-employment provisions or other published requirements of doing business with UNOPS

  • Obstruction: acts or omissions by a vendor that prevent or hinder UNOPS from investigating instances of possible proscribed practices.


Vendor Review Committee

The Vendor Review Committee (“VRC”) is an internal technical administrative body tasked with determining and making recommendations to the Executive Chief Procurement Officer (ECPO) for consideration in rendering the final UNOPS decision regarding Vendor Ineligibility. The VRC shall determine whether vendors have engaged in Proscribed Practices in connection with UNOPS procurement activities.​

UNOPS may determine that certain vendors, their boards of directors and/or individual personnel are ineligible to conduct business with UNOPS either indefinitely or for a stated period of time. This ineligibility may affect any entity or individual who directly or indirectly controls the debarred vendor, or any entity or individual that the debarred vendor controls or employs. The determination of ineligibility is made through an administrative process that permits the vendors/ individuals to respond to the allegations made against them. Sanctioned vendors may apply to the VRC for rehabilitation after at least half of their sanctioned period has passed.

For information on UNOPS vendor sanctions policy, please consult the Operational Instruction on Vendor Sanctions


UNOPS entries to the UN Ineligibility List

The vendors and individuals listed below have been sanctioned in accordance with the UNOPS Operational Instruction on Vendor Sanctions​ because they were found to have engaged in proscribed practices in relation to UNOPS procurement actions. Imposing sanctions is one of the ways in which UNOPS seeks to prevent and combat fraud and corruption in its projects.

UNOPS shares these entries with the Agencies, Funds and Programs of United Nations through the UN Ineligibility list, hosted by UN Global Marketplace.

UNOPS sanctions are separate from any actions that may be taken by any government or international organization under applicable law.​

If you have any questions concerning these entries kindly free to contact the UNOPS Vendor Review Committee Secretariat (VRC Secretariat) via VRC@unops.org​
