As the custodian of the evaluation function, the Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of UNDP supports the Administrator in his/her substantive accountability function, and contributes to informed decision-making by the Executive Board, managing for development results by the organization and enhancing the evaluation function across the UN system by engaging with partners in the evaluation and development community.
IEO undertakes independent country programme evaluations (ICPEs) – previously known as Assessments of Development Results (ADRs). The ICPEs cover the UNDP country portfolio over a 5 year period and are timed to provide evaluative evidence to feed into the development of new UNDP Country Programme Documents. ICPEs/ADRs also support UNDP’s accountability to national stakeholders and the Executive Board.
In 2019, an ICPE will be conducted in Malaysia. The Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) of UNDP is looking to hire two consultants (preferably national/regional but international consultants will also be considered) to support the ICPE of UNDP Malaysia. The consultants will serve as team specialists and support the assessment of the programme and/or specific thematic/outcome areas. Under the guidance of the lead evaluator, the consultants will conduct preliminary research and data collection activities, undertake data/information analysis, and contribute to the preparation of the final ICPE report. The consultants will work closely with the lead evaluator and associate lead evaluator from the IEO in all phases of the evaluation.
