The Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) of UNDP plays a key role in strengthening knowledge management and policy guidance in UNDP including the coherence and quality of anti-corruption knowledge, which is coordinated by UNDP’s Anti-Corruption for Peaceful and Inclusive Societies (ACPIS) global project.  UNDP’s focus on knowledge management and compilation of lessons learned at country, regional and global levels has significantly contributed to consistent and coherent policy direction, rigorous quality standards and valuable service platforms.

The long-term goal of Knowledge Management (KM) in UNDP is to position UNDP as a World Class Knowledge Organization linking local experiences to global policies. UNDP aspires to be on the cutting edge of policy analysis and knowledge sharing. Knowledge management in UNDP is guided by a Knowledge Strategy that enables UNDP to share and leverage its knowledge and experience across countries, regions, practices, UN agencies and external partners. The Knowledge Strategy, including research and analysis, creates a human and technical infrastructure to enable staff and practitioners to learn, share, connect and contextualize knowledge by enhancing collaboration and creating a cultural change with regard to the organization's approach to knowledge management. This represents the next stage in the evolution of Knowledge Management in UNDP.

ACPIS is UNDP’s main vehicle for supporting and coordinating UNDP’s anti-corruption work both internally through UNDP regional hubs and country offices and externally with other relevant partners. In addition to producing knowledge products on relevant anti-corruption topics, UNDP also coordinates the interagency anti-corruption web-portal “”, which provides information by various thematic areas and also online courses on anti-corruption.

Working under the overall supervision of Anti-Corruption Advisor and day-to-day management of ACPIS project manager, the Knowledge Management and Research Support consultant will support research and knowledge management of the ACPIS project through UNDP’s global anti-corruption network, the public website, governance peace-building knowledge base, and the UNDP’s intranet. The consultant will support the ACPIS global, regional and country level networks in maintaining the high quality of network knowledge products while allowing for the Community of Practice on Anti-corruption (also known as global anti-corruption network) to undertake new initiatives, and adapting network products, such as global news updates, to serve the new client base, in light of the growth in membership and commensurate rise in the level and scope of network; and of the new platforms and tools available to the practice. The incumbent will assist in facilitating the global anti-corruption network by conducting in-depth research and analysis in governance, mainly through web and document research, and networking with policy advisers and external experts, and providing research and coordination support to roll out UNDP’s flagship knowledge products.
