As a central procurement resource for the United Nations system and its partners, UNOPS emphasizes efficient, transparent, cost-effective and sustainable delivery of goods, services and works, in line with public procurement best practices. On a yearly basis, UNOPS procures over USD 1 Bn worth of goods, services and works on behalf of our partners. These include a broad base of categories, including life-saving pharmaceuticals, mine action equipment, vehicles or road construction services. 

Procurement Group (PG) is part of Implementation Practices and Standards (IPS) and is based at UNOPS HQ in Copenhagen. It leads the organization’s procurement practice and is responsible for: articulating strategy, policy positions and innovative solutions for procurement at UNOPS; enabling the operationalization and managerial oversight of UNOPS procurement activities through appropriate systems and reports; strengthening the knowledge, skills and career development of procurement practitioners; and leading the implementation of sustainable procurement across the organization. 

Since 2015, UNOPS has been a leader in sustainable procurement, and sustainability is now one of the core principles of UNOPS Procurement. We have implemented best practices such as: 

  • Sustainable Procurement Framework, effective as of 1st January 2020, which requires that most of our procurement processes incorporate sustainability and gender mainstreaming considerations. 

  • Delivering Responsibility in Vendor Engagement programme (DRiVE). DRiVE is UNOPS supplier sustainability assessment, inspection and corrective action-planning programme. Its overall scope is to ensure UNOPS vendors operate responsibly and in accordance with high standards of integrity, with a focus on human rights, labour standards, equal opportunity, code of conduct, health and safety, quality management and environmental management. 

  • Possibilities Programme, which is UNOPS supplier diversity and inclusion programme. 

With the introduction of the Contribution Goals and the related Contribution Indicators, UNOPS has signaled its commitment to ensuring that public procurement supports the Agenda 2030 and the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Procurement Group’s Sustainable Procurement Team is focused on ensuring this becomes fully engrained in all our procurement activities. This role will ensure that our teams have the right resources not only to implement sustainable procurement, but to actively measure and report on it.
