Across Asia and the Pacific, UNDP helps countries build and share their own solutions to urgent development challenges, supporting coalitions for change and connecting individuals and institutions so they can share knowledge, experience and resources. As countries develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of regional and global partners.
The Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific (RBAP) concentrates its efforts on developing the region’s capacity to promote and accelerate action on its progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It implements the UNDP Strategic Plan in Asia and the Pacific and delivers on UNDP’s partnerships within the region and with development actors in the region. UNDP has corporately prioritized the implementation of SDG country support platforms as its main value offer in the new strategic plan. RBAP is actively taking ownership of this agenda and positioning its Country Offices (COs) and regional support to achieve these corporate commitments.
In this context, the Bureau is making conscious efforts to provide enhanced support to the COs within the region to accelerate programme delivery. Under the guidance and direct supervision of the Programme Management Specialist, the Procurement Analyst supports COs in key procurement actions, ensuring the transparency and integrity of the processes. S/he promotes a collaborative and client-oriented approach in her/his work, with guidance from the Regional Procurement Advisor and CO support teams based in the Bangkok Regional Hub.
