UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
The purpose of this procurement exercise is to contract individual consultant who will support the implementation of two areas of the UNDP Responsive and Accountable Institutions Team’s work: (1) the Crisis Response Package on Core Government Functions; and (2) Integrating Gender Equality in Public Administration (GEPA) into the work of the RAI team.
As a trusted multilateral partner serving 177 countries and territories around the world, UNDP is uniquely positioned to help advocate for change, connect countries to the knowledge and resources they need to develop and to coordinate the efforts of the United Nations at the country level.
The Responsive and Accountable Institutions Team (RAI), in the Governance and Peacebuilding Cluster of the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support, contributes to UNDP’s integrated work on rebuilding the basic functionality of government at the national and subnational level, strengthening local governance systems, and promoting responsiveness and accountability of institutions, with a particular focus on fragile and conflict-affected setting. In order to deliver faster and more consistently in the aftermath of crises, together with the Crisis Response Unit (CRU), a Crisis Response Package on the Restoration of Core Government Functions is being developed.
Another core area of the RAI Team’s work is the Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment in Public Administration Global Initiative (GEPA), focusing on women’s equal participation, including in decision-making positions, within public administrations. This initiative is intended to provide the basis for UNDP to adapt, scale up, share lessons learned and advocate with national partners for informed policy and programmatic actions. The Global GEPA Report, released in June 2014, included analyses of the approaches undertaken by a wide range of governments in promoting women’s participation, particularly in leadership positions, in public institutions. It reflects on the strengths, constraints, specificities, lessons learned and implementation challenges at different levels of government, as well as diverse geographic and governance contexts and public administration traditions. Drawing on thirteen case studies, and a broader desk review/mapping, the Global GEPA Report proposes a comprehensive analysis of trends and challenges and provides recommendations to support strengthened policies and programming.
