Procurement

The UNRWA Procurement and Logistics Division (PLD) is responsible for the procurement, distribution and provision of all food, goods and services required to support over four million Palestine refugees in all of our areas of operation.

UNRWA PLD is based at the Agency's headquarters in Amman and in each UNRWA field office in Gaza, West Bank, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.

PLD provides Palestine refugees with high-standard goods and services, while striving to achieve the best value for the money UNRWA receives from its donors. In support of this aim, the UNRWA procurement process is transparent, fair and in line with general UN procurement practices.
