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 unprecedented spread of COVID-19 in the Philippines has resulted in a shortage of medical personal protective equipment (PPE) across the healthcare system. Hospitals have begun publicly requesting for donations to help solve this problem. While several individuals and organizations have responded to the call to help, there is a pressing need to coordinate these actions to ensure that the supplies are delivered to the right hospital at the right time, quantity, and quality.
UNDP Philippines, in line with UNDP’s global offer on COVID-19 response, has partnered with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to create a digital solution called “Enhanced Manufacturing of Protective Wear and Equipment for COVID19 Response in the Philippines” (EMPOWER PH). The initiative provides a collaborative platform between various stakeholders to facilitate and accelerate production and distribution of essential items in order to meet increasing demand for personal protective equipment (PPE), ensure product quality standards, democratize knowledge and resources, provide livelihood opportunities, and facilitate an effective supply chain.
The UNDP will be handing over the EMPOWER PH platform to the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), and this initiative will create a database of both medical and non-medical grade manufacturers and suppliers that will go through vetting process to ensure quality goods that can be accessed by consumers and hospital beneficiaries.
Moreover, equipped with the platform and the learnings from the pilot in Metro Manila, UNDP Philippines will work with local ministries and agencies in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) to localize the EMPOWER PH platform, equip the regional agencies with technical capabilities to operationalize the platform, and address the supply chain infrastructure gaps of the local garments industry in order to enable the region to facilitate local production and trade.
The engagement of a Technical and Quality Assessment Consultant is needed to provide technical assistance to the DTI during the handover period and to assist the delivery of technical training and knowledge transfer to the partner institutions, organizations and communities in BARMM in line with the localization of the EMPOWER initiative.
