The United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UN Trust Fund) was established through the UN General Assembly Resolution 50/166 in 1996 with UN Women as its Administrator on behalf of the UN system. The UN Trust Fund (UNTF) is a global multi-lateral grant making mechanism supporting national efforts to prevent and end violence against women and girls, one of the most widespread human rights violations in the world. The UN Trust Fund provides technical assistance and funding to advance the development of innovative models and strategic interventions in ending violence against women and girls. To date, the UN Trust Fund has awarded US 215 million to 646 initiatives in 140 countries and territories.
The UN Trust Fund, through its annual Call for Proposals process, identifies and selects the most note-worthy projects to fund each year. The application selection process is rigorous and extensive, requiring coordination across a wide range of stakeholders, including applicants, external experts, UN Women offices and other UN agencies. The UN Trust Fund utilizes an online Grants Management System (GMS) for both the grantee selection process as well for managing grantee reporting obligations.
The UN Trust Fund is in the final stage of enhancement of its newly designed Grants Management System in collaboration with a vendor and the UN Women Information Systems and Telecommunications (IST) Section. The current online platforms include: 1) the Call for Proposal (CFP) section that interfaces with approximately 2,000 users during each Call for Proposals; and 2) Grants financial and narrative reporting system through which in 100+ grantees submit their bi-annual reports and receive feedback on progress.
Given the volume of users and the significant role the Call for Proposals process and information systems play at UN Trust Fund, the Grants Management System and Call for Proposals Consultant will provide support to the Project Coordinator Specialist in maintaining of the entire system and for providing necessary technical support to all the users.

1. Support with implementation and maintenance of GMS project
2. Support with enhancements of the system
3. Support the online grant-application system related to the Call for Proposals
4. Support other Call for Proposal processes from the operational side
The key results have an impact on the overall quality and effective use of the Grants Management System by all the relevant users to support more effective grants management, as well as the timely implementation of the Fund’s annual Call for Proposals processes.
