Call for Expressions of Interest, UNDP Audit and Evaluation Advisory Committee

UNDP works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to eradicate poverty, reduce inequalities and exclusion, and build resilience so countries can sustain progress. As the UN’s development agency, UNDP plays a critical role in helping countries achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

The independent Audit and Evaluation Advisory Committee (AEAC) of UNDP was established in 2006 to assist the UNDP Administrator in fulfilling his/her responsibilities regarding oversight, financial management and reporting, internal audit and investigation, external audit, risk management, the evaluation and ethics functions, and systems of internal controls, accountability, and governance.

The Committee is composed of members, reflecting a regional mix and gender balance, independent and external to UNDP.  Members are not remunerated but shall be provided with travel and daily subsistence allowances (per diem) for attending AEAC meetings, which are held three times a year. The Committee may also conduct virtual meetings when needed.

UNDP is calling for expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced individuals to serve in this advisory committee. Women are particularly encouraged to apply.

Members serve on a voluntary basis and are not remunerated. UNDP provides travel costs and a daily subsistence allowance (per diem) for participation in in-person Committee meetings. Selected members are not considered a staff member of UNDP.
