How does UNDP do business

UNDP procurement is based on the principles of:

Best Value for Money
Fairness, Integrity and Transparency
Effective International Competition
Interest of UNDP (economy, efficiency, equal opportunity to compete, transparency in the procurement process)

UNDP Procurement is governed by an Internal Control Framework as well as the norms contained in the Financial Disclosure and Declaration of Interest, and Impartiality Statements (FDP). In order to provide a faster procurement process and delivery of goods and/or services, UNDP observes the local and international market, negotiates and maintains local Long Term Agreements (LTA) for goods and services that are frequently used by Business Units and development partners.
