What is UNOPS?
The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) is an operational arm of the United Nations, supporting the successful implementation of its partners’ peacebuilding, humanitarian and development projects around the world.
With over 7,000 personnel spread across 80 countries, UNOPS provides project management, procurement and infrastructure services to governments, donors and UN organizations, such as the European Union, theGovernment of Haiti, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
Our partners currently rely on our proven expertise to increase the speed, cost-effectiveness and sustainability of over 1,000 projects, often in the most challenging environments.
UNOPS builds the infrastructure needed for development, such as schools, hospitals and roads in post-disaster and conflict-affected areas, as well as in economies in transition. We provide expert procurement support to help governments buy the goods and services they need. We manage projects and programmes of every size, while simultaneously enhancing the capacity of developing countries to manage their own initiatives.

What does the Liaison Office in Brussels do?
UNOPS opened an office in Brussels in July 2009, following the signature of the Financial and Administrative Framework Agreement (FAFA) with the European Commission (EC) which facilitates the cooperation between the two institutions. The aim of our presence in Brussels is to increase understanding and coordination between the Organisation and the EU institutions.
