|Overview : |
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 provides independent, objective assurance on the effectiveness of risk management and the effectiveness and adequacy of internal controls. OAI also responds to allegations of misconduct by conducting and reporting on investigations.
The Investigation Section of OAI is responsible for conducting investigations into allegations of misconduct, such as mismanagement, fraud, corruption, retaliation on whistleblowers, workplace harassment, abuse of authority, violation or willful disregard of UNDP regulations, rules, and administrative instructions, that involve UNDP staff, contractors and other applicable persons. The Investigations Section is also tasked with investigating allegations against parties external to the UNDP of financial irregularities committed to the detriment of UNDP. In addition, OAI undertakes proactive investigations in high risk areas that are susceptible to wrongdoings, fraud and corruption.
OAI conducts investigations in accordance with the Uniform Principles and Guidelines for Investigations, the UNDP Legal Framework for Addressing Non-Compliance with UN Standards of Conduct, and the OAI Investigation Guidelines.
OAI seeks to engage in a Long-Term Agreement (LTA) with suitably skilled and experienced Investigations Analysts (Maximum 3 consultants) to call upon as required from time to time.
The Consultant is required to research and analyze cases relating to Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) across countries and regions and over different periods of time to identify patterns, trends and “problem clusters,” in order to recognize risks facing the implementation of GFATM Grants, how these risks change over time, how cases are detected and how could they be identified more easily. The information will be collated in the form of reports, graphs and charts, as part of OAI’s risk mitigation and to advise Country Offices and Bureaux of “red flags” and raise awareness on fraud and corruption issues.
