The Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) is the UN center of expertise on pooled financing mechanisms. As a UN system-wide asset hosted by the UNDP, the MPTF Office supports overall UN coherence and the achievement of the 2030 Agenda by ensuring that its portfolio of pooled financing instruments is well-designed and professionally managed. The MPTF Office portfolio currently comprises over 80 active Funds with annual contribution exceeding US$1billion.
The MPTF Office provides fund design, fund administration, and other related professional services to UN entities, national governments, and other partners. It provides integrated services throughout the life cycle of its pooled funds, from their inception to their closure. These services are conducted separately from the pooled fund management and implementation roles, ensuring a neutral and professionally dedicated trustee function firewalled from all UN implementing entities, UNDP included. In addition to fund design and administration, the Office’s comprehensive offer of services includes fund secretariat support, pooled funding knowledge services, and data and analytics of UN finance. Further information on the MPTF Office, its service offering and the MDTFs and JP portfolio can be found on its key transparency portal MPTF Office GATEWAY (http://mptf.undp.org/) and in its latest Annual Report.
In line with the UN Development System Funding Compact and the recommendations of external evaluations carried out in 2018 and 2019, the MPTF Office is firmly committed to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of UN inter-agency pooled funds. Thus, the MPTF Office is working to continue improving its operations through, among others, its new GATEWAY, a revised operations manual and an update of its manual on designing pooled funds for performance.
Within this context, the MPTF Office seeks the services of a highly qualified consultant/s for a 3 year Long Term Arrangement in Management Consulting Services to assist the MPTF Directorate with a variety of advisory projects linked notably to its fund administration and knowledge management services.
