The PAHO Procurement and Supply Management Department (PRO) is responsible for the timely and efficient acquisition of goods and services in a competitive and transparent manner. PRO purchases a wide range of products and services for health-related activities and for administrative support of PAHO's headquarters and field offices. PRO also purchases on behalf its Member Governments under reimbursable procurement procedures, including the PAHO Revolving Fund, and the PAHO Strategic Fund.
PRO has integrated PAHO's e-tendering system, In-Tend, and the Organization's supplier database with the United Nations Global Marketplace (UNGM). UNGM is the procurement portal of the UN System and a website where suppliers can register. Over 25 UN Agencies use UNGM as their supplier roster. By registering with UNGM, suppliers will have access to PAHO tenders and those published by all other UN agencies.
Now, for a supplier to bid on a PAHO procurement opportunity, the vendor also must be registered with PAHO on UNGM. Register here with UNGM: www.ungm.org/Vendor/Registration.
