About UNOS:
Located in Richmond, Virginia, UNOS is a non‐profit, scientific and educational organization* that administers the
nation's only Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN), established by the U.S. Congress in 1984.
Through the OPTN, we:
• collect and manage data about every transplant event occurring in the United States;
• facilitate the organ matching and placement process using UNOS‐developed data technology and the
UNOS Organ Center; and

transplantation policy.

UNOS was awarded the initial OPTN contract on September 30, 1986. UNOS is the only organization to ever
manage the OPTN, and has continued to administer the contract for more than 22 years through five successive
contract renewals. UNOS provides the OPTN with a functional, effective management system incorporating the
Board of Directors, committees and regional membership to operate OPTN elements and activities.
