UNOPS goal is to make sustainability an integral part of all its procurement practices. Procurement is sustainable when it integrates requirements and criteria that promote social progress, economic development, and the protection of the environment.
In addition to promoting sustainability, we help develop national capacity through employing local workers, providing on-the-job and specialized training, and expanding the procurement capacity of local authorities.
UNOPS also brings industry standards and operational excellence to development, ensuring our projects fully adhere to procurement regulations, respect our fundamental values and ethical standards, and provide our partners with transparent and cost-effective procurement services.

UNOPS Procurement Manual
The goal of the UNOPS procurement process is to ensure that best total value is achieved when procuring goods, services and works while at the same time supporting UNOPS operations and mission. Four guiding principles underlie the UNOPS procurement process, ensuring the achievement of best value for money and the impartial and equitable treatment of suppliers.
This manual governs the procurement of all goods, services and works. It also governs the standards of conduct for all UNOPS personnel involved in the procurement process.
