United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) – a global initiative that aligns institutions of higher education with the United Nations in furthering the realization of the purposes and mandate of the Organization through activities and research in a shared culture of intellectual social responsibility.

United Nations Global Marketplace (UNGM) – is the procurement portal of the UN System. It brings together UN procurement staff and the supplier community. The UNGM acts as a single window, through which potential suppliers may register with the 20 UN Agencies using the UNGM as their supplier roster. These agencies account for 95% of the total UN procurement spent, the UNGM therefore provides an excellent springboard to introduce your goods and services to many UN organizations, countries and regions by only completing one registration form.

It provides the tools you need to successfully bid on international contracts financed and/or implemented by content providers such as the United Nations, the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank and other multilateral banks, the Millennium Challenge Corporation and national governments.
