The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. UNDP works through 125 country offices to provide development advocacy, advice and assistance to 170 countries globally.
The Effectiveness Group in the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (EG/BPPS) focuses on assisting UNDP and partners to achieve higher quality development results through an integrated approach that links results-based management and performance monitoring with more effective and new ways of working. It seeks to do so by enabling UNDP and others to be more innovative, and to make more evidence and data driven decisions by identifying, testing, sharing, learning from and institutionalizing what works. It acts as a hub on all aspects of results-based management, development performance monitoring and analysis, as well as identifying, collecting, and sharing ideas on new and better ways of working across the UNDP network, social innovators, and the development community.
Given its mandate, the Effectiveness Group leads and coordinates UNDP’s transparency initiative. UNDP began publishing its project and financial information to the global standard in 2011. Open.undp.org, UNDP's online portal, allows open and comprehensive public access to data on over 5,000 projects and US$ 5 billion in project data.
The Data Quality Analyst (consultant) will support the implementation of the transparency initiative and data publication in UNDP. The transparency initiative in UNDP has increasingly involved a major exercise to ensure data quality both by the country offices and by the headquarters units. The consultant is expected to analyse the quality and quantity of UNDP’s published project and financial data and support country offices and headquarters units to ensure that UNDP’s project data have the highest quality. He/She will work closely with the Results Team of the EG, Office of Finance and Resource Management, Information and Technology Management (IMT) team, regional bureaux and country offices to ensure timely resolution of data quality issues. He/she will also make recommendations about the methods and ways in which UNDP obtains and analyses data to improve quality.
