Overview :

From 2010-2017, the UNDP oversaw a nationally implemented project called the "Standards and Labels for Promoting Energy Efficiency in Russia" (S&L Project). The goal of the S&L Project was to set new energy efficiency standards for lighting and household appliances (e.g., refrigerators and AC units). The S&L Project was approved and financed with $7.8 million from the Global Environment Facility (GEF). In line with GEF Council Policies and UNDP Policies and Procedures, the Project was executed by the Russian Government, with project cycle management services (i.e. oversight) by UNDP. The Project was completed in June 2017.

UNDP is initiating a review of the handling of the S&L Project. The purpose is to review the governance, risk management and controls in place for S& L during its design and implementation phase up to its closure in 2017, including reviewing associated evaluations, audits and investigations. The review may assist UNDP to further refine controls, risk management and governance arrangements established by UNDP for the GEF funded projects since the closure of the S & L project. The review is aligned with the UNDP Accountability System, including its Oversight policy and Legal Framework, in which the UNDP  Administrator has the sole responsibility for holding UNDP  staff accountable for misconduct following legal advice and UNDP  Office of  Audit and Investigation (OAI) has the sole responsibility to investigate alleged individual misconduct in UNDP The review is motivated to determine whether UNDP had the right tools to manage, escalate or investigate the S&L Project from a governance perspective and managed the project fully aligned with UNDP Accountability System.

UNDP would like to engage a suitable skilled and experienced team of 2 to 3 consultants to review the handing of the S&L project.
