The United Nations may be on the verge of installing an SAP enterprise resource planning system, potentially resulting in one of the largest US public sector deployments to date for the software vendor.

SAP has won the right to negotiate a deal with the organisation, a UN spokesperson said, but a contract has not yet been finalised.

According to a report by Reuters, a German newspaper citing unnamed sources at the UN published a story on saying the deal could be worth as much as $300 million (£204 million).

SAP already has a large presence in the US public sector. Some of its ERP customers within the US government include the Department of Homeland Security and the US Customs and Border Protection agency, a DHS unit that combines the former Customs Service and Border Patrol.
