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 Investigations Section of OAI is responsible for conducting investigations into allegations of misconduct, such as mismanagement, fraud, corruption, retaliation on whistle-blowers, workplace harassment, sexual harassment, abuse of authority, violation or wilful disregard of UNDP regulations, rules, and administrative instructions, that involve UNDP staff, contractors and other applicable persons. 

In 2013 OAI established the Social and Environmental Compliance Unit (SECU) to respond to complaints that UNDP may not be meeting its social and environmental commitments. SECU became operational on 1 January 2015. 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 projects into compliance.

In June 2014 UNDP approved Social and Environmental Standards (SES) and the Stakeholder Response Mechanism (SRM) to be integrated into UNDP’s policies and procedures and effective for all new projects starting January 1, 2015.  

OAI seeks to engage in a Long-Term Agreement (LTA) with suitably skilled and experienced consultants (maximum 4 consultants) to call upon as required from time to time to support OAI in matters relating to Social and Environmental Compliance of UNDP.
