Overview :


The objective of this assignment is to provide temporary administrative and logistical support to the Multi-Country Western Pacific Programme Management Unit.



The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 170 countries and territories, working with governments and people on their own solutions to global and national development challenges to help empower lives and build resilient nations.


 As a trusted, long-term partner of The Global Fund (GF), UNDP’s value proposition lies in providing an integrated package of development solutions to strengthen institutions to deliver health services. Through its contributions as interim Principal Recipient (PR) and provider of technical assistance in over 53 countries since 2003, UNDP’s provision of integrated policy, implementation and capacity development support to countries has yielded significant health and development results in challenging operating environments. Proactive risk management and investing in sustainability are the cornerstones of UNDP’s portfolio management approach and providing technical assistance to national counterparts during all phases of implementation, strengthening legislation, policies and regulatory frameworks, and building capacities across key functional areas, including financial management, health information systems, procurement and supply chain management.


 As the interim Principal Recipient for the Multi-Country Western Pacific grants (Integrated HIV/TB Programme for 11 PICs and Malaria Programme in Vanuatu) from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2023, UNDP is responsible for the financial and programmatic management and the procurement and supply of health products for the Global Fund HIV,TB, Malaria and COVID-19 Response Mechanism grants to 11 Pacific Islands Countries (Cook islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Republic of Marshall Islands, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu) in coordination with the 30 sub-recipients comprising of 11 Countries Ministry of Health, Civil Services Organizations national and technical partners for the achievement of programme results and the effective use of grant resources.


For the implementation of the Multi-Country Programmes, the UNDP Pacific Centre in Fiji established a Programme Management Unit (PMU) based in Suva to coordinate and oversee the implementation in 11 PIC counters and to ensure compliance with the Global Fund and UNDP rules, policies and procedures. The PMU coordinates with the PIRM CCM, PICs Governments and CSOs as well as with regional partners, the Global Fund and other key stakeholders in the health and development sector (bi-laterals, private sector) and technical assistance providers.


UNDP‘s management role consists in ensuring successful implementation of grant activities by sub-recipients ensuring programmatic and financial accountability and capacity building of national and international counterparts in programmatic, monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and financial management.


UNDP is planning to engage 11 sub-recipients from regional Pacific Island Countries and technical partners to participate and facilitate the Regional Workshop by the end of 2022.  The regional workshop organized by UNDP and the Programme partners requires additional administrative and logistical support. Under the overall supervision of the PMU Programme Manager and daily supervision by the PMU Programme Administrative Associate, the Admin Support consultant will work directly    with all the  11 PIC counters, communicate directly to counterparts in all countries, liaise  directly with MOH relevant focal point to effectively organize, support and facilitate the smooth process of the event ensuring  delivery of activities listed under the Scope of Work.
