Research Specialist - P3

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

  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. See - https://www.undp.org/content/undp/en/home/accountability/audit/secu-srm/social-and-environmental-compliance-unit.html   The Research Specialist functionally reports to the Compliance Specialist (P4), SECU, while he/she works closely under the technical guidance of the Lead Compliance Officer, SECU.     Duties and Responsibilities   Under the overall supervision of the Compliance Specialist, SECU, the primary role of the Research Specialist is to conduct research into matters that fall within SECU's mandate, as outlined in ‘Organizational Context' above.

Reporting Specialist - P3

Iraq, Arbīl, Erbil - 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. In 2014 and 2015 respectively UNDP in Iraq designed and initiated the Iraq Crisis Response and Resilience Programme (ICRRP) and the Funding Facility for Stabilization (FFS) - the two primary and largest Project platforms through which to support the Government of Iraq to respond to the crisis that had broken out in the country and to stabilize the areas that were formerly under the control of ISIL. Both Project platforms were anchored under the Stabilization Pillar of UNDP Iraq's Country Programme framework. The Iraq Crisis Response and Resilience Programme (ICRRP) which was set up at the end of 2014 promotes the recovery and resilience of communities vulnerable to multi-dimensional shocks associated with large-scale returns and the protracted displacement of Iraqis and Syrian refugees. This is achieved through immediate crisis response and medium-term programming, integrating crisis management capacity building, rehabilitating basic service infrastructure, livelihood recovery and social cohesion. ICRRP activities have been implemented in 11 Governorates in Iraq. While initially set-up to provide immediate support to I DPs, Syrian refugees and host communities in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI), the increasing number of returnees to newly liberated areas (NLAs) and the protracted displacement of individuals facing security challenges or a lack of livelihoods opportunities, resulted in a geographic and strategic shift, shaped by a need for greater self-reliance amongst target communities. ICRRP activities are implemented through Responsible Parties spanning government, civil society and private sector entities. The Funding Facility for Stabilization (FFS) was set up in June 2015, with UNDP Iraq taking the Programmatic lead at the request of the Government of Iraq, and the DSRSG/RC/HC/RRto support the newly liberated areas that were freed from ISIL. FFS supports stabilization activities in Anbar, Diyala, Kirkuk, Ninewa and Salah al-Din. The FFS Steering Committee, which is co-chaired by the Secretary-General of the Council of Ministers (CoM) and the UNDP Resident Representative (RR), provides strategic direction to the FFS. All stabilization activities are decided in agreement with the local authorities (Governor's office and mayors), based on priorities identified at the local level through consultations. Given the sensitive nature of stabilization and the fragile conditions prevailing in many newly liberated areas, concerns relating to human rights, protection, gender and inclusion are taken into account during the prioritization and sequencing of activities. Window One: Public Works and Light Infrastructure Rehabilitation; Window Two: Livelihoods; Window Three: Capacity Support; and Window Four: Social Cohesion. The different windows of FFS are implemented by government entities, NGOs/CBOs and other UN agencies, where relevant. However, ownership by and the leading role of the Iraqi Government (particularly at governorate level) are critical and include decision-making power on project-funding and priority setting through consultative processes with the international partners and other stakeholders. Where feasible, the contracting/implementation/monitoring of activities are coordinated with Government technical implementation entities to ensure maximum ownership. FFS is working in 31 areas across five governorates, and is an essential tool of the Government of Iraq in its effort to stabilize areas retaken by the Iraqi Security Forces. Both FFS and ICRRP are required to produce consolidated reports on quarterly basis {including annual reports at the end of each year) for its partners {including donors), in addition to donor-specific reports for UNDP to fulfil its contractual requirements while meeting the corporate quality standards. The consolidated reports enable the stabilization pillar to share with donors in a published document, the important work undertaken through the program, describe challenges and lessons learned, and serve as an important tool to inform policymakers of progress in Iraq on stabilization. Further, the documents are translated into Arabic so that Iraqis can read the progress of the program. As for donor-specific reporting, at least six donors (Austria, Denmark, EU, France Germany and Japan) require periodic written reports (quarterly, biannual and/or annual, as per each contribution agreement), while other major donors require ad hoc progress updates in various forms {including biweekly meeting update to USAID). In other words, this means between 7 to 14 reports need to be prepared in a quarter. Moreover, it is anticipated that the majority of 27 donors to FFS project will require final reports this year, as all contribution agreements stipulated final reports to be submitted at the end of contribution.
