|Type of Contract :||Individual Contract|
|Post Level :||National Consultant|
|Languages Required :||English|
|Duration of Initial Contract :||One (1) year|
UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. With offices in more than 170 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.
Working in the Philippines for over 40 years already, UNDP continues to strengthen the country’s capacities at the national and local levels to promote democratic governance, sustainable management of natural resources, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction and management, and resilience and peacebuilding. In all its programmes, UNDP integrates human rights and gender equality, advocating that everyone should have equal access to the benefits of development
In supporting various projects and programmes, UN/UNDP conducts various workshops / events across the Philippines. The size and duration of the workshops / events may vary from small (10 resources and half a day) to large (100 resources and 5 days). In this context, UNDP Philippines is looking to contract multiple facilitators who are based in different parts of the country to ensure the successful preparation and facilitation of the workshops.
Under the Long-Term Agreement (LTA) facilitators will be empaneled for different regions based on their current location (duty station) and these LTAs can be availed of by other UN agencies in Philippines under same terms and conditions.
The Consultant shall report to the Project Manager of the hiring unit or his/ her authorized representative/s.
Release of final payment shall be contingent on submission of approved workshop synthesis report.
Duration of the Contract
The assignment, under this Long-Term Agreement (On Call) Contract, is expected to have a duration of 3 years. The initial contract would be for one year (April 2019 – March 2020) with an option for renewal in the subsequent years which is contingent on a satisfactory performance evaluation.
Technical and Geographic Requirements
UNDP seeks to employ facilitators working in all parts of the country and it is a requirement that facilitators are already based in that region.
Candidates are requested to clearly state in their technical proposal their area of expertise (such as Governance, Peace Building, Environment, Climate Change, Monitoring, Disaster Risk Reduction and Management, etc.) and geographic region where they are based, according to the below categorization:
• Metro Manila

Duty Station and Travel
The facilitators on LTAs are expected to attend the activities as scheduled in the different areas identified as venues. They might be required to travel outside their duty station (as identified in their proposal) for specific events and the facilitators would make their own arrangements for travel and lodging. Payment of travel costs including tickets, lodging, etc. should be agreed upon, between the Hiring Unit of UN/UNDP and the facilitator prior to travel. All travel related expenses will be reimbursed on actuals, upon submission of original receipts.
LTA Contracting modality and Call-off mechanism:
UNDP will regularly monitor the performance of these LTA holders, based on the following Key Performance Indicators (KPIs):
UNDP will conduct performance reviews of these LTAs every 6 months, which might include meetings with the LTA holders and gather feedback from other stakeholders.

a) Responsive/ compliant/ acceptable; and
