Capacity development and training
UNOPS supports national capacity development through hiring local workers and expanding the procurement capacity of local governments. Our extensive experience allows governments to benefit from specialized expertise in the procurement of infrastructure, motor vehicles, healthcare supplies and other commodity groups.
UNOPS also collaborates with UNEP and ITC-ILO to offer customized sustainable procurement training workshops to procurers, requisitioners and policy makers across the United Nations system.
Bringing industry standards and operational excellence to development
UNOPS procures high quality goods and services at the right price, while fully adhering to fundamental procurement principles, including fairness, integrity and transparency. Our partners benefit from our technical expertise, global market overview and competitive prices. In addition to the CIPS certification in sustainable procurement, UNOPS has been CIPS-certified in procurement policies and procedures.
UNOPS regulatory framework is established in the UNOPS Financial Regulations and Rules and our procedures are outlined in the UNOPS Procurement Manual. We carefully select suppliers through competitive bidding based on their capacity, adherence to ethical standards and financial health. UNOPS continuously evaluates suppliers and performs rigorous quality checks.
We only work with suppliers that comply with UNOPS procurement policies and procedures and share our respect for fundamental human rights, social justice, human dignity and equality, as enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations and the United Nations Supplier Code of Conduct.
