Our purpose is to enable and promote companies who seek to establish and expand their global sourcing abilities and supply procurement. We provide for global communication between companies that are seeking to establish sustainable supply chains in the global market. Through a centralized chain of web management we provide for increased sourcing capabilities and expanding supply operations on a global level. We support the possibility of companies utilizing shared services on a global level through communication and centralization of web services. We seek to link companies together through our provided web services to meet the individual need of businesses that are seeking the global market for their operational supply. We also support the effective collaboration and possible converging of businesses with similar global interests. One of our goals is to increase and support communication of businesses that are seeking to maintain efficient and profitable operating models through global wholesale sourcing. Through a centralized chain of web management we desire to alleviate the need to spend time searching the web, but instead provide an easily accessible chain of global suppliers.

The United Nations
The United Nations, including its many affiliated organisations, represents a global market of over USD 6 billion annually for all types of goods and services. The UN Global Marketplace acts as a single window, through which the business community may register with the UN system, providing an excellent springboard to introduce your goods and services to many UN organisations, countries and regions. The database facilitates the interchange of supplier information within the UN system as information is made available to all UN organisations, and it acts as an important procurement tool to shortlist suppliers for competitive bidding.
Please note, however, that even though the Global Marketplace is open to all procurement staff, some organisations do have their own supplier database. Therefore, it is important that potential suppliers also register with UN agencies that do not directly support the UN Global Marketplace.
