Duties and Responsibilities
Scope of Work
2. Programme Priorities and Partnership: This section presents the programme priorities that UNDP proposes to focus on in support of national priorities to achieve the SDGs as part of the Cooperation Framework. Rather than repeating the specific outcomes of the programme, which are stated in the Results and Resources Framework, this section should focus on the systems thinking contributions to concrete benefits for people and society. Suggested content can be found in the CPD template in the annex I.
3. Programme and Risk Management: This section lays out the specific management initiatives that will achieve programme quality, efficiency and effectiveness in the pursuit of development results. Suggested content can be found in the CPD template in the annex I.
4. Monitoring and Evaluation: This section outlines the approach to monitoring and evaluation of the programme, with a strong focus on monitoring, data collection, analysis and reporting. As the programme unit plans its activities through the country programme period, it is important to plan how the unit will check its progress towards the agreed development goals and outcomes, produce evaluation findings to support change, aid knowledge-gathering and inform the work of UNDP. If there are issues with globally available or national data (availability, quality, periodicity of update, reliability, disaggregation by sex), note how this will this be addressed, including through national capacity development for monitoring, assurance and evaluation. Highlight any innovative methods that will be used to make monitoring and assurance more inclusive and in support of real time decision making.
