- ‘How to register in the United Nations Global Marketplace’ - includes United Nations vendor registration platform, requirements, criteria, and processes. The training aims to build capacity among representatives of member states to provide assistance to suppliers’ wishing to be registered in the UNGM.
- ‘How to access procurement related information in the United Nations’ - participants learn how to navigate and find UN procurement-related information, such as annual statistics, reference materials, business seminars, training opportunities and related contact information that are available on the Procurement Division’s and/or UNGM websites.
These training and briefing sessions are aimed at educating and enabling representatives of member states so that they can, in turn, support the vendor community from their respective countries to participate in the United Nations procurement activities.
