10.06 Works and construction contracts

Procurement of works typically involves both a goods and a services component, usually with an element of engineering (civil or otherwise) defining the full requirements.

Procurement of works is not discussed in detail in this Manual. Contracts for works should be handled by a competent agency on behalf of UNAIDS, or in close consultation with the HQ Procurement Coordinator. It must follow UN agencies best practices for establishing the best procurement process and contractual arrangements. 

The Procurement Requestor must consult with the Procurement Coordinator when the procurement of works is required directly by UNAIDS (e.g. information technology, small security enhancements or construction).
