The UN is a promising market for UK companies as the UN overall procurement volume (goods and services combined) of the various UN organisations is worth around £12 billion per year. UN procurement is suitable for small as well as larger companies because payment is guaranteed. In addition, English is the working language and the UK has an excellent reputation among the UN agencies, being the UN's ninth largest supplier in 2015. Although these organisations present huge purchasing opportunities, it is essential to be well prepared and familiar with the purchasing process. It is important to know how to register your company to be invited to bid, and to know which international organisation could be most interested in your company's products or services.
