UNIDO procures goods and services for:
1) implementation of its Technical Cooperation Programmes (TC Procurement), and
2) maintenance and functioning of the Vienna International Center including UNIDO Headquarters (Non-TC Procurement).
Procurement is administered by the Procurement Services Unit, Operational Support Services Branch, Programme Support and General Management Division (PSM/OSS/PRS), which is responsible for solicitation of offers, awarding and management of contracts and purchase orders in close cooperation with UNIDO substantive branches. In addition to the centralized procurement, UNIDO Representatives in the field are authorized to procure locally goods and services for the requirements of the field offices.
Procurement for the technical cooperation programme encompasses a variety of technically complex products and services required for implementing UNIDO's integrated technical assistance programmes and stand-alone projects.
Procurement requirements for maintenance of the building and facilities of the Vienna International Center and functioning of the UNIDO Headquarters include repair, modification and renovation of buildings; repair of roads and foot paths; carpentry works; electrical, electromechanical and electronics engineering works; heating, ventilation and air-conditioning works.
