|Overview : |
The portfolio of projects under the UNDP-GEF unit are required to follow standard UNDP monitoring and evaluation policies as well as monitoring and evaluation policies and requirements of the relevant environmental vertical fund from which they receive financing. These requirements are supported through the UNDP-GEF results management approach and cover project-level, portfolio-level and management level results. For example, on an annual basis, UNDP supported Global Environment Facility (GEF) financed projects and Green Climate Fund (GCF) financed projects submit required annual project implementation reports. These reports must be aggregated in various forms (e.g. specific Excel templates, individual Word files) and the data used for various reporting and management purposes. Since 2013, the GEF project-level report has been completed online in a module connected to a web-based project cycle management system, ‘PIMS+.’ In 2017, PIMS+ was upgraded to connect various server and end-user databases used by the UNDP-GEF team. The 2017 PIR was process was implemented in a reporting platform connected to PIMS+. The annual GCF APR process which UNDP must conduct for the first time in 2018 must also be implemented in the reporting platform connected to PIMS+. Other results management related requirements include mid-term reviews, terminal evaluations, and quality assessments of reports.
In this regard, the UNDP-GEF Directorate is seeking a consultant to develop, maintain, update and improve the reporting system in line with related results management requirements and PIMS+ functions, and contribute to the development of other, interconnected parts of the PIMS+ system, working closely with the Lead Software Developer for PIMS+.
