What are e-procurement systems?
E-procurement systems facilitate the procurement processes conducted by UN organizations by digitally handling the different steps of the procurement process: sourcing, solicitation, bid opening, evaluation and award.
How do UN organizations use e-procurement?
UN organizations use different e-procurement systems and may use them differently:
either as a stand-alone system;
or integrated with UNGM.
When a UN organization's e-procurement system is integrated with UNGM, the UNGM portal will become the entry point for the UN organization's e-procurement system.
Currently, 14 UN organizations have their e-procurement systems integrated with UNGM: FAO, IFAD, ILO, ITU, PAHO, UN Secretariat, UNESCO, UNICEF, UNOPS, UNRWA, WIPO, WTO, WMO and WHO.
