Vendor Registration

The United Nations Procurement Division (UNPD) is pleased to announce that registering with UNPD is now a “One-Step” fully “On-Line” process. In its continued partnership with the United Nations Global Marketplace (UNGM), UNPD and UNGM have worked together to provide vendors with a powerful yet easy-to-use tool to prepare and submit an on-line application for registration with UNPD. In addition, the registration criteria has been revised and now allows vendors to select the level of business activity they wish to participate in that best matches their capacities, business scope and commercial strategy.

Why Register?

After making yourself familiar with the UN business opportunities at the United Nations Expression of Interest website, registering with UNPD is the first step to be considered for participating in tendering exercises in an easy and systematic way. Since the UN Secretariat is currently implementing a new ERP system, registering with UNPD through UNGM will provide access to all UN Secretariat entities, including Field Missions, Offices away from Headquarters, Economic Commissions and Tribunals.
