The United Nations International Computing Centre (ICC) was established in 1971 by a Memorandum of Agreement among the United Nations (UN), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the World Health Organization (WHO), pursuant to resolution 2741 (XXV) of the United Nations General Assembly. It was created as an inter-organization facility to provide electronic data processing services for themselves and other Users.

Initially, ICC functioned as a Service Bureau providing mainframe services to a limited number of users. Over the years, ICC has broadened the range of services to include internet hosting, managed storage and other services.

The International Computing Centre (ICC) has 45 years of experience providing Information and Communications Technology (ICT) services to United Nations programmes, funds and entities. Its mission is to provide ICT services to the United Nations family, maximise the sharing of infrastructure, systems and skills and generate economies of scale to benefit its over 40 Clients and Partner Organizations,including United Nations and related not-for-profit entities.

ICC now has over 400 staff with ICC Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland and offices in New York City, USA, Brindisi and Rome, Italy and Valencia, Spain.
