UNICEF Supply Division is responsible for offshore procurement on behalf of UNICEF country offices, headquarters and Procurement Services partners, and for oversight of all UNICEF procurement. UNICEF procured $2.14 billion worth of supplies and equipment in 2011 alone, including $1.62 billion worth of offshore supplies.
All UNICEF procurement supports UNICEF goals and priorities for children and women. UNICEF maintains the highest level of integrity in its procurement activities. The organization evaluates and registers suppliers with which it does business. It also ensures that all potential suppliers are subject to the same conditions and that information received is confidential.
Information on key commodities, large contract awards, and top supplier countries can be found in the Supply Annual Report 2011. Please consult the Supply Catalogue for specifications for the 2,000 standard UNICEF commodities.
Suppliers should also refer to pages under the relevant programme areas, e.g. Immunization, Medicines, etc., where other useful information may be posted, such as details of supplier meetings.
