The objective of this effort is to adopt a coordinated approach to both the procurement and administration of banking services and relations for all of the Participating UN Agencies, both on a regional and country-by-country basis.  We recognize that the UN System’s entities have varying needs and requirements depending upon the type of operations and countries involved.  We can broadly categorize the banking requirements into the following categories. While in some cases the categories may overlap (i.e., #1 and #5) we provide this categorization as a premise for the structure of the proposed approach.
