The United Nations Development Programme in Ukraine is committed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and operates across a broad spectrum of areas. UNDP in Ukraine also works in a rapidly changing and complex environment, with the COVID-19 pandemic having exacerbated the developmental challenges. In light of this, the continuous attention to transformation and innovation initiatives is a key to catalytic action for the achievement of ambitious agenda and facilitating positive change for the country. UNDP’s Digital Strategy 2019-2021 guides the efforts to leverage digital technologies and improve UNDP’s policy, programme and operational capacities.
The overall purpose of the assignment is to provide inputs and advice to the Country Office (CO) in terms of its digital transformation, as well as improving planning, monitoring and evaluation systems applied by UNDP Ukraine. Under the overall guidance of the Deputy Resident Representative, and in coordination with the Strategic Planning, Partnerships and RBM unit, the Senior Digital Transformation Advisor will provide technical advice and support to UNDP in digital transformation of the CO. This applies to providing advisory services and technical solutions in the areas of planning support, reporting, monitoring and evaluation, assessment, coordination, and capacity-building through information management. Another area of work refers to assisting Ukraine’s Government as it sets about digitally transforming different areas of its work. The Senior Digital Transformation Advisor will also assist in further development of the Integrated Monitoring and Reporting Platform (IMRP). The IMRP was developed for and used exclusively by UNDP in Ukraine to enable the CO to effectively store, process, analyse and use large amount of monitoring data and ensure a results-oriented and sound reporting of progress. IMRP will continue to serve as a primarily tool for data management in the CO in 2021 and beyond. Along with continued maintenance, the platform needs further improvement to ensure that it fully meets performance monitoring and managerial needs of UNDP.
