If the express Interest button appears in grey and can not be clicked, it indicates that the express interest button is read-only. It implies that the option to express interest in the procurement opportunity has been disabled.
The express interest button is disabled in the following cases:
- The procurement opportunity does not accept electronic submissions through e-procurement systems.
This specific procurement opportunity requires submission by hard copy or email. The instructions to participate in the procurement opportunity are provided in the tender details and/or documentation.
- The supplier's profile is not registered with the UN organization issuing the procurement opportunity on UNGM.
Either the registration on UNGM has not been finalized or the supplier's profile does not match the UN organization according to the UNSPSC codes selected in the registration form. In case of any doubt, suppliers are advised to contact UNGM using the contact form on the Help Centre.
- The supplier has mistakenly registered as a Trade Promotion Entity or is registered as an Individual Consultant.
The registration as a Trade Promotion Entity and as an Individual Consultant on UNGM does not enable electronic participation in procurement opportunities.
To participate in procurement opportunities, suppliers are required to register via the registration process dedicated to suppliers.
If the account created as a Trade Promotion Entity and as an Individual Consultant needs to be deleted, suppliers are advised to contact UNGM using the contact form in the Help Centre.
