17.01 Overview

UNAIDS contracts with non-commercial entities (such as government institutions, NGOs, research institutions, non-profit academic institutions and UN agencies) to support their activities in accordance with the priority programme objectives as reflected in the UBRAF.  
For these types of contracts, the commercial templates described in previous chapters are not applicable; specific non-commercial contract templates and procedures have been established.

There are three types of non-commercial contracts used by UNAIDS:
  1. Programme Funding Agreement (PFA)
  2. UN Agency to UN Agency Agreement (UN to UN)
  3. Direct Financial Contribution (DFC)
