Supply Annual Report 2015

2015: Agile, resilient and sustainable supply chains for children

Improving accessibility, bridging financing gaps, generating savings and strengthening supply chains with governments

In 2015, UNICEF, in collaboration with governments and partners, procured a record $3.428 billion in supplies and services for children, including $1.755 billion of supplies procured on behalf of 102 governments. The 2015 Supply Annual Report provides an overview of key UNICEF Supply activities that focus on competition, transparency and collaboration to achieve sustainable markets to achieve value for money, working with governments and partners to build strong supply chains and build technical capacity, effective emergency response to support the millions of children caught in crisis and conflict, and real-time innovation to prepare and respond to health emergencies.

The 2015 Supply Annual Report shares insights on UNICEF’s rapidly expanding supply financing solutions area of work, which helps address market uncertainties and influence lower prices for life-saving commodities and strengthen countries’ financial self-sustainability to ensure the timely availability supplies. Notably, these efforts contributed to price savings of over $422.8 million in 2015, bringing UNICEF’s cumulative savings since 2012 to $1.068 billion.

As in previous year’s, the report with its annexes is a useful reference on UNICEF procurement across key commodity groups and lists UNICEF suppliers by country.
