To do business with WFP, a vendor must be on the WFP Registered Supplier Roster - both to receive tenders for food, goods and services and submit bids.

To fight hunger worldwide, WFP relies on a strong supply chain of reliable and reputable suppliers. With no space for trial and error, the agency requires that all potential suppliers apply to the WFP Registered Supplier Roster. The registrations are submitted through the United Nations Global Marketplace portal --

To be considered for registration, potential suppliers of food, goods and services must provide correct information and ensure that the items offered are within the WFP core procurement requirements. A full list can be found here, which covers food, goods and services.

Submitting a completed application through the UNGM does not mean that a supplier will be automatically added to the WFP supplier database.

Registration will depend on WFP's evaluation of a company's experience, its ability to perform and financial soundness, as well as the relevance of the goods or services offered. WFP reserves the right to publicly post the details of tender awards, including the supplier's name and total contract value.

What does registration on the WFP Supplier Roster mean? 

Registration does not imply invitation to every tender issued by WFP - only those for which the registered vendor is qualified. It means that a company is in our database of potential suppliers for a specified commodity. 

Registration status is not indefinite. WFP reserves the right to delete a vendor from its database in the event of poor performance or non-competitive offers.
