One of the tools available for contractors and consultants to locate prospective international development opportunities is the UNDB Online (http://www.devbusiness.com).
Before discussing the searching and browsing features of the UNDB Online, it is important to note the relationship between the online and print editions.
However, the UNDB Online is almost a carbon copy (no pun intended) of the print version.
What exactly does the UNDB Online have to offer in terms of content?
Because the UNDB provides a wide range of regional coverage, the country listings are also quite extensive--almost every developing counsector listing contains almost 40 industry sectors.
The UNDB Online allows the user to browse current procurement notices and to search for specific project listings.
Searching the UNDB Online is fairly straightforward.
The UNDB Online does a good job of providing assistance for search questions: the online search help guide is quite useful for addressing and explaining the various search options.
However, should the user end up with more results than necessary, the UNDB Online provides a seventh search option-the Refine option.
The last three Refine options can be somewhat difficult if you are not familiar with and/or do not have access to the print version of the UNDB. The time-sensitive search criteria category is also based on having specific information that is often only found in the original project announcement (which is published in the print version).
