|Overview : |
The United Nations Organisations spend in excess of $300 million per year on vehicle procurement. Given this volume, there may exist opportunities to strategically consolidate volumes and further negotiate with vehicle manufacturers for more competitive pricing structures.
The High Level Committee for Management (HLCM) recently endorsed a project to review the options for consolidating planned purchasing of vehicles across organisations. The project has three phases to enable the progressive building and adoption of a consolidated vehicle procurement framework strategy.
The project phases are
1) Data gathering and feasibility study;
2) Development of consolidated vehicle procurement framework;
3) Implementation of the framework.
The Consultant will have overall responsibility for the successful implementation of Phase One of the project including project staffing, management, administration and coordination of all project activities. He/she serves as the point of contact for participating UN agencies and is responsible for project communications. He/she reports directly to the Director of Procurement, UNDP and the members of the interagency working group.
