Public spending can be a powerful force for change.

At UNOPS, we believe more transparent, sustainable and resilient procurement models can strengthen supply chains, empower institutions and be a catalyst for realizing sustainable and inclusive development.

Diversifying supply chains not only makes them more resilient, but also provides businesses owned by women, young people, people with disabilities and ethnic minorities opportunities to prosper.

We specialize in helping our partners tap into the unique opportunities that public procurement offers to accelerate the shift to low-carbon economies, recover from the socio-economic impact of the pandemic, tackle corruption, and reduce inequality.
