How Does UNDP Do Business

UNDP procures goods and services by soliciting bids through a competitive process. The following methods are used for the procurement of goods and services:

Request for Quotation (RFQ)
This is the most flexible and the least formal method that is used for procuring goods, services and/or works. RFQs call for a written quotation.
RFQ applies to contracts exceeding US$2,500 but less than US$100,000

Invitation to Bid (ITB)
An ITB is normally used when an entity is not required to propose technical approaches to a project activity, or to offer management or supervision of an activity. ITBs are used when an entity has to provide its cost requirements to meet precise specifications sought from UNDP. This is normally the case when UNDP buys goods. It may also apply to work contracts and services that can be expressed quantitatively and qualitatively.
ITB applies to contracts exceeding US$100,000.

Request for Proposal (RFP)
RFP is used when the inputs and/or outputs cannot be quantitatively and qualitatively expressed at the time the invitation is made, for example, consulting or similar services. An RFP may also be used for the purchase of complex goods when one is not sure of the functional specifications and wishes to seek proposals.
RFP applies to contracts exceeding US$100,000.00.

UNDP procurement guidelines categorically prohibit UNDP staff members from accepting any gifts and favours from vendors and partners.


UNDP staff will not accept any gift, honour, decoration, remuneration, favour or economic benefit from any source external to their organisation. This also includes governments, commercial firms and other entities.


This prohibition on receiving gifts and favours extends beyond UNDP policy and is also embodied and institutionalised in the Code of Conduct established by the International Civil Service Commission of the United Nations.
