The United Nations Global Marketplace - UNGM - is the procurement portal of the UN System. It brings together UN procurement staff and the supplier community. The United Nations represents a global market of over USD 14 billion annually for all types of goods and services.

The UNGM acts as a single window, through which potential suppliers may register with the 20 UN Agencies using the UNGM as their supplier roster. These agencies account for 95% of the total UN procurement spent, the UNGM therefore provides an excellent springboard to introduce your goods and services to many UN organizations, countries and regions by only completing one registration form.

The UNGM also enables suppliers to keep abreast of upcoming tender notices and by now subscribing to the tender alert service to receive relevant business opportunities directly in their e-mail. Further the UNGM facilitates the interchange of supplier information within the UN system as information is made available to all UN organizations. The UNGM acts as an important procurement tool as well to shortlist suppliers for competitive bidding.
