UNFPA Census Procurement



UNFPA PSB conducting a Census Workshop

Proper procurement and logistics planning is essential for successful implementation of a census. Yet planning can be complex and require logistical coordination with multiple project activities, programs and counterparts. UNFPA Procurement Services Branch, with years of extensive experience, is a leader in the procurement of census goods and services, and partners with governments to provide planning, procurement and logistical services that ensure a successful census operation.

With our multi-lingual team of experts, UNFPA Procurement Services Branch (PSB) provides a trusted, centralized solution for census-related procurement and logistics. UNFPA PSB staff utilize their considerable knowledge and experience to customize services to meet the specific needs of each country census project. Services are available in English, Spanish, French, Arabic and other languages.

 Our continuously updated international network of prequalified vendors and suppliers undergo a rigorous quality control and selection process according to specific technical requirements unique to census projects. Access to our network enables us to quickly react to urgent requests and cut down on response time, which is critical in the census planning process. Core areas of UNFPA’s work include taking a role in supporting countries that are conducting their first census in post-conflict situations or those that require technical assistance or support for other reasons.
