UNDP Global Mission Statement:
UNDP is the UN’s global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 176 countries, working with national counterparts on their solutions to global and national development challenges.
Malaysia deployed its first contingent of armed forces personnel for UN peacekeeping activities in October 1960, to the Republic of Congo. Since then, a total of 37,000 personnel from both the Malaysian Armed Forces and the Royal Malaysian Police Force have participated in over 30 UN peacekeeping activities worldwide, demonstrating Malaysia’s commitment to international peace and security.
UNDP and the MPC have a track record of working together. Between 2010 and 2012. UNDP and the Malaysian Ministry of Defence—with the support of the UNDP-Japanese Partnership Fund—successfully implemented the ‘Capacity Building Support for Malaysia’s Role in Multidimensional Peacekeeping Training’. The Project was extended to the second phase in 2015 (called the Phase II Project), which focused on strengthening the MPC’s capacity in providing peacekeeping training and its research capabilities.
UNDP proposes a first activity (‘Service Line 1’) as a support/capacity enhancement one. This entails working with the MPC to strategically strengthen institutional knowledge management and communications. This area of cooperation will aid the MPC to enhance its training and capacity building for peacekeeping for international military, police, and civilian personnel who will be embarking on UN peacekeeping activities worldwide. This will also aid Malaysia’s contribution to global peacekeeping efforts, as well as, strategically position Malaysia as a key player within global and regional partnerships for development.
With this background, the MPC would like to improve its knowledge management and sharing, as well as, data management and storage system. UNDP is seeking to contract an individual consultant to undertake a baseline assessment on the MPC’s current IT infrastructure and provide recommendations for meeting current and aspirational needs, including identifying a list of IT equipment (hardware) to be procured (along with its costs), as well as, the IT solution required for the data management/storage system. In addition, the individual consultant is also tasked to undertake due diligence on a mobile phone app development for a training module that the MPC provides.
