Compliance Specialist - P4

United States of America, New York, New York - United Nations Development Programme
Nonprofit/Community/Social Services
Other

  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.
