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 across the world, WFP needs to be able to rely 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. Also, please ensure that the items offered are within the WFP core procurement requirement -- a list can be found in Doing Business with WFP, both for 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 supplier 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
