Overview :

Dear Sir/Madam:

UNOSSC produces an important number of official United Nations reports as well as the documentation of solutions, outreach materials, conference/Expo texts and several other types of materials. In 2019, it is anticipated that preparations for the second High-level United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation (BAPA+40 Conference) will also create a need for editorial services in view of the UNOSSC role as the secretariat for the Conference. For this output, there is a need to ensure quality writing in terms of logical development of ideas; accuracy of facts and of the messages to be conveyed; correct English spelling, grammar and punctuation, including conformity to UNDP and United Nations editorial style and terminology; and consistency in formatting. UNOSSC is thus seeking the services of an editorial consultant to undertake the tasks described below. The incumbent will work with the individual staff members responsible for the products requiring editorial services.

UNOSSC would like to enter into Individual Contractor’s Framework Agreement/Long-Term Agreement (ICFA/LTA) with a maximum of two editors who can provide high-quality professional editing of texts that are logically structured and grammatically and factually correct; accurately reflect UNDP and the United Nations editorial style and use of terminology; are consistent in style and format; clearly and accurately convey their messages; and are delivered within the requisite deadlines.

Should you have any questions please get in touch:

The deadline to submit an application is 12 September 2019 New York Time.

Best regards,
