UNICEF works and devotes a large amount of its resources to improving basic living conditions which will directly benefit children and their families in 158 countries and territories around the world. This includes procuring and providing different kind of supplies for various UNICEF supported programs in the countries.
In 2009, UNICEF procured US $1.75 billion worth of supplies, including $68 million worth of water and sanitation materials.
One of the most important objectives of UNICEF within the water and environmental sanitation program is to reduce the proportion of households that do not have access to affordable, safe drinking water and hygiene by at least one third by 2010. This can save the lives of millions of children.
The achievement of UNICEF's goals in water and sanitation depends upon the procurement and timely delivery of appropriate and affordable supplies in the most efficient manner. Therefore, UNICEF is inviting eligible suppliers to send Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for the following categories of supplies:
1. Water Collection (e.g. well digging, well pumps etc);
2. Water Supply/Distribution (e.g. pipes, pumps, water meters etc);
3. Water Treatment (e.g. filtration, disinfections, mobile units etc);
4. Water Storage (e.g. tanks, containers etc);
5. Water Testing (e. g. bacteriological testing, physical testing, chlorine testing etc);
6. Hygiene & Sanitation (e.g. portable and fixed latrines, etc);
7. Reconnaissance (e. g. surveying and geophysical instruments etc).
The detailed specification of the standard items listed above can be found on the UNICEF online Catalogue at http://www.supply.unicef.dk/catalogue/ - under Water and Sanitation. As and when required, suppliers may also be requested to provide their offers for other water and sanitation products which are not listed in the current UNICEF catalogue.
