See the handling fees that are applied to supplies and services procured by UNICEF.
Handling fees are charged in order to defray the incremental direct and indirect costs that UNICEF incurs by providing services. The fees are established based on total projected annual procurement for a commodity group. However, special fees may be applied when:
- procurement for a specific partner is projected to exceed $100 million per year or
- a multi-year agreement is established.
See below fees for least developed countries (LDCs) and, further below, for UN agencies.
