In Nepal, UN Women focuses on strengthening women’s voice, choice, agency, and security across sectors to advance women’s rights, provide space for women’s meaningful participation and to demonstrate tangible differences in their lives. It is guided by Nepal’s stated priorities and its commitments to relevant normative frameworks, the country’s United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2019), the CEDAW Concluding Observations (2022) and UN Women’s Strategic Plan 2023-2027.

How to apply?
The candidates should submit following documents/ information in a single PDF file to demonstrate their qualifications through the UNDP jobs site: jobs.undp.org by the application deadline:
Financial Proposal Format:
Kindly note that the system will only allow one attachment, please combine all your documents into one single PDF document. Applications without incompleted documents will not be considered for further assessment.
Evaluation of applicants:
A two-stage procedure is applied in evaluating the proposals.
1. The technical proposal (P11 and expression of interest) is assessed first based on the qualifications listed above. Those proposals that meet a minimum threshold (scoring at least 70% on the technical assessment/interview) will be considered further, including through assessment of the financial proposal. The points given on the technical assessment will count as 70% of total points.
Technical evaluation criteria (including minimum qualifications):
2. The financial proposal of candidates who meet the technical assessment threshold will be evaluated. The financial assessment will count as 30% of the total points. In this methodology, the maximum number of points assigned to the financial proposal is allocated to the lowest price proposal. All other price proposals receive points in inverse proportion.
A formula is as follows:
p = y (µ/z)
p = points for the financial proposal being evaluated
y = maximum number of points for the financial proposal
µ = price of the lowest priced proposal
z = price of the proposal being evaluated
Note: In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
UN Women is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Qualified Women, Dalits, Janjatis, Madhesis, Persons with Disabilities, gender and sexual minorities and other minorities are specially encouraged to apply.
