FAO
 

The formal foundation of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations took place in the first session of the FAO Conference in Chateau Frontenac in Quebec, Canada, from 16 October to 1 November 1945. In 1951, the FAO headquarters were moved to Rome, Italy. With the presence in over 130 countries, FAO has 191 member nations, one associate member and one member organization, the European Union. The FAO leads international efforts to defeat hunger and since its establishment have focused special attention on developing rural areas, home to 70 percent of the world's poor and hungry people. The FAO helps developing countries and countries in transition modernize and improve agriculture, forestry and fisheries practices and ensure good nutrition for all. 
FAO is composed of six departments: Agriculture and Consumer Protection; Economic and Social Development; Fisheries and Aquaculture; Forestry; Corporate Services, Human Resources and Finance; and Technical Cooperation.

The Procurement Service (CSAP) located at FAO Headquarters in Rome, Italy is responsible for all FAO procurement activities. The main goal of FAO procurement is to efficiently support FAO’s mandate of achieving a food-secure world by raising levels of nutrition, improving agricultural productivity, bettering the lives of rural populations and contributing to the growth of the world economy.  As such, the primary focus of FAO procurement is in the areas of agricultural, forestry and fishery products and machinery, as well as services related to technical studies, construction and disseminating information.

Annually, FAO procures more than $150 million of goods, works and services from vendors globally. Within any given project, there can be multiple business opportunities for interested and able vendors. FAO acquires goods, works and services on the basis of a formal contract award procedure generally following a competitive procurement process. The most frequently procured goods include: basic chemicals (fertilizers and pesticides); agricultural produce (seeds, crop, vegetable, seedlings and plantlets); special purpose machinery (agricultural machinery, tractors, spraying devices, irrigation equipment); transport equipment; office and IT equipment. The commonly procured services include: repair and maintenance services; information technology; transportation, storage and materials handling; architecture, engineering, construction and other technical services.
