Among UNON's key support services is the Facilities Management and Transportation Section, which is responsible for maintaining a comfortable and efficient working environment at Gigiri - both for the benefit of the complex's 3,400 employees as well as for tens of thousands of visitors each year. This involves not only supervising all construction projects, utility maintenance, security systems and the management of the 140-acre grounds, but also the allocation of office space to tenants. The Section is also responsible for managing all UNON internal stores and a vital staff transport service, which runs an efficient fleet of buses for all local UN staff.

The Section additionally supervises the operations of a variety of businesses providing employees at Gigiri with a wide range of duty-free goods and modern health facilities. These include the complex's well-stocked Commissary, a gift shop, the UN petrol station, and a recreation centre, which boasts a well-equipped gym, a swimming pool, a full-sized football pitch, tennis, basket and squash courts. The COU is responsible for issuing passes to staff entitled to use these facilities, and for overseeing the caterers of the two cafeterias and various coffee shops at the Gigiri Complex.
