Becoming a supplier to UNICEF
UNICEF is interested in diversifying its supplier base and finding new suppliers that can provide quality goods at competitive prices. Here is how you can take part in our work to serve children around the world as a new supplier or service provider.
Business opportunities are posted on the United Nations Global Marketplace (UNGM), where tender notices from other UN organizations are also available. To see UNICEF opportunities, click on “Show more criteria” and enter UNICEF as the selected UN Organization.
All applications to become a supplier with UNICEF must be made via UNGM. There is no charge to register as a supplier.
All procurement follows public procurement principles, and products must comply with recognised technical standards.
UNICEF reviews supplier applications and determines interest based on the relevance of products and services. For reference to products procured by UNICEF, please view our Supply Catalogue.
UNICEF strictly enforces a policy of zero tolerance concerning unethical or fraudulent acts of suppliers. Accordingly, any UNICEF supplier suspected of involvement in proscribed practices may be suspended or forbidden from continuing business relations with UNICEF. More information can be found in our Procurement Policies.
Suppliers may be requested to provide a complete copy of their audited financial statements, with comparative figures for the previous year. UNICEF evaluates financial viability, ethical and legal issues to identify and mitigate fiduciary risks.
