And we never give up.   For every child, Deliver Supplies are essential to fulfil children's rights.  Supporting child survival and development programmes around the world, UNICEF-procured supplies are critical in providing for children's health, education and protecting them from abuse, exploitation, and neglect. UNICEF procures and supplies over 5,000 products to address the needs of children. In 2017, UNICEF procured $3.46 billion worth of supplies and services from all over the world, ensuring high [quality](https://www.unicef.org/supply/index_41948.html) and good value through fair and [open procurement](https://www.unicef.org/supply/index_procurement_policies.html). As well as supporting UNICEF's ongoing programmatic activities, the Supply function provides rapid supply response to [emergencies](https://www.unicef.org/supply/index_protection.html). UNICEF also procures and supplies essential commodities on behalf of governments and other partners in their efforts. These [procurement services ](https://www.unicef.org/supply/index_procurement_services.html)can also include in-country logistics, capacity building, and project management. Ensuring the global availability of essential supplies through influencing markets for lifesaving commodities such as vaccines, essential medicines and health products, and implementing a range of supply chain models to ensure these supplies are delivered to children, are two overarching focuses.    How can you make a difference? Supply Division's (SD) key priorities for 2018-2021 are providing timely and effective service delivery, including for emergencies, programmes and procurement services partners, creating healthy markets and sustainable national supply chain systems, and providing supply financing solutions. To support and accelerate the achievement of results, the SD Office Management Plan (OMP) contains strategies on the Science of Delivery, Products & Markets, Services, Humanitarian Development Continuum, National System Strengthening, Financing and Domestic Resource Mobilization, Monitoring, the Supply Community, Optimizing UNICEF Supply, and Strengthening Organizational Excellence.

  Background   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.     Job Purpose and Organizational Context   The Office of Audit and Investigations (OAI) reports to the Administrator and is responsible for internal audit and investigations services to UNDP and its affiliated entities. OAI has the sole responsibility for the conduct of all investigations within UNDP.  The Investigations Section of OAI conducts assessments and investigations into allegations of misconduct, such as fraud, theft and embezzlement, corruption, abuse of privileges and immunities, sexual exploitation and sexual abuse, workplace harassment and abuse of authority, retaliation on whistleblowers, or other acts or omissions in conflict with the general obligations that involve UNDP staff and other personnel. OAI also investigates allegations of fraud and other financial irregularities committed by contractors, implementing partners and other third parties, deemed to be detrimental to UNDP.  Where vendors are found to have engaged in proscribed practices (including, for example, corruption, collusion and unethical conduct) OAI provides all relevant evidence to the UNDP Vendor Review Committee for consideration of sanctions against the vendors involved. In addition, OAI may undertake proactive investigations in high risk areas that are susceptible to fraud, corruption and other wrongdoings. OAI conducts investigations in accordance with the Uniform Principles and Guidelines for Investigations endorsed by the 10th Conference of International Investigators, with the UNDP Legal Framework for Addressing Non-Compliance with UN Standards of Conduct, and with the OAI Investigation Guidelines. OAI maintains multi-language, toll-free reporting facilities (telephone hotline, web-based reporting facility, email, postal address and other means as appropriate) that function around the clock to facilitate staff, management and others to report any instances of fraud, corruption or other wrongdoings. OAI operates separate mechanisms for the reporting of alleged non-compliance with UNDP's social and environmental policies and procedures. OAI established the Social and Environmental Compliance Unit (SECU) to respond to complaints that UNDP may not be meeting its social and environmental commitments. The SECU became operational on 1 January 2015. The assessment, investigation and reporting of alleged non-compliance with UNDP's social and environmental policies and procedures is conducted by the SECU as a compliance review in accordance with generally accepted international processes. The purpose of a compliance review is to investigate alleged violations of UNDP's social and environmental policies and procedures, and to identify approaches to bring the project into compliance. In that regard, SECU operates a complaint mechanism for communities and public stakeholders and assesses such complaints to determine whether an investigation is required or whether the issue raised is more appropriately dealt with through a separate Grievance Resolution process. Where the assessment determines that an investigation is warranted, SECU will investigate allegations of non-compliance with UNDP's social and environmental policies and procedures. Based on the evidence collected during the investigation, SECU will recommend action to bring a project into compliance.
