About UNDP Procurement Training

United Nations Development Programme offers specialized procurement training courses to the UN system, non-governmental organizations, charities and development financing institutions. Courses are scheduled regularly in New York, Bangkok, Dubai, Vienna and Copenhagen. In addition to scheduled courses, UNDP can arrange tailor-made courses at your location on a cost-recovery basis. UNDP’s procurement training courses offer the opportunity for practitioners to improve their knowledge and skills in various aspects of public procurement. All workshops employ modern participatory adult learning methods. Each training module commences with an overview of the rules, procedures and/or theory of the subject in question, and is then followed by case studies, group discussions or exercises. This creates a forum for the participants to apply theory and methods to real cases and to foster productive discussion. The courses are organized by the Quality Assurance and Professionalisation unit, which is responsible for the design, development and implementation of procurement professionalisation, training and quality assurance initiatives at individual and organizational level in UNDP. Course tutors are drawn from both UNDP's own staff as well as its roster of external experts.
