Investigations Consultant - LTA

United Nations Development Programme | Published December 21, 2015  -  Deadline January 4, 2016

In 2012 the UNDP Administrator expanded the Charter of the Office of Audit and Investigations (OAI) to include the mandate to investigate UNDP’s compliance with its social and environmental commitments.  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 during the interim phase. The main purpose of the compliance review is to investigate alleged violations of UNDP’s social and environmental policies and procedures. In order to maximize UNDP accountability on social and environmental issues, the SECU collaborates closely with the Stakeholder Response Mechanism (SRM) that ensures individuals, groups, peoples, and communities affected by UNDP projects can raise project-related grievances to UNDP when necessary and receive a timely and appropriate UNDP response. As principal reference points for UNDP’s commitments, Social and Environmental Standards were issued in December 2014 to apply to all UNDP projects and programmes.  The application of Social and Environmental Standards across UNDP programming protects the values UNDP stands for and helps UNDP become a more effective organization.  The objectives of the Standards are to: (i) strengthen the social and environmental outcomes of UNDP projects; (ii) avoid adverse impacts to people and the environment affected by projects; (iii) minimize, mitigate, and manage adverse impacts where avoidance is not possible; (iv) strengthen UNDP and partner capacities for managing social and environmental risks; and (v) ensure full and effective stakeholder engagement, including through a mechanism to respond to complaints from project-affected people. OAI seeks to engage in a Long Term Agreement (LTA) with a suitably skilled and experienced consultant to call upon as required from time to time to support OAI in matters relating to Social and Environmental Compliance of UNDP. For the details of this assignment, please see attached the Procurement Notice and TOR.

Consulting services in support of acquisition of ICT goods and services

United Nations Secretariat | Published March 21, 2016
cpvs

The Information, Communications and Technology Division (ICTD) of the United Nations Department of Field Support provides ICT support to various UN peacekeeping and political missions throughout the world. Such missions are located in countries where local ICT infrastructure is either non-existent or unreliable. Therefore ICTD plans, installs and maintains its own ICT network in all such missions. The required ICT equipment and services for such networks are acquired from multi-year system contracts established by UN HQ Procurement Division (PD) in New York through global commercial competitive bidding. It has to be noted that ICTD provides only the technical requirement in generic terms to PD and the commercial part is handled by PD itself. ICTD intends to utilise the services of a qualified service provider or consultants specialized and experienced in developing the Statement of Work (SOW), technical evaluation criteria and other relevant technical documents to initiate the system contract. The selected service provider/ consultant will not only develop such documents but also answer all technical queries received from the vendors after the Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued and do the technical evaluation of the received bids in close consultation with ICTD technical team. The immediate requirement is for the development of SOW and related technical documents to initiate the multi-year system contract for catalogue based purchases of ICT supplies, consumables, tools, audio video and imaging products and related ancillaries. Selected service providers/ consultants/ individual professionals will be kept on roster for possible consideration in future for developing SOW and relevant documents for catalogue or non-catalogue based system contracts for ICT products and services.

CONSULTANCY SERVICES FOR TRANSPORTATION AND MOVEMENTS

United Nations Secretariat | Published April 25, 2016
cpvs

CONSULTANCY SERVICES FOR TRANSPORTATION AND MOVEMENTS Introduction 1. The Department of Field Support (DFS) in conjunction with the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and the Department of Management (DM) arranges a large number of chartered passenger flights, cargo flights and ships in support of the United Nations Peacekeeping Operations (PKOs). Annual expenditure is in the range of USD 200-250 million for these activities. The planning for this strategic movement involves various elements of different Departments of UN Secretariat and Member States: from DPKO, the Military Division (Mil. Div.) and Civilian Police Division (CPD), who are responsible to generate the forces; from DFS, the Logistics Support Division (LSD), who is responsible to move the forces; Member States, the Troop Contributing Countries (TCC) or Police Contributing Countries (PCC) who supply the forces; and DPKO Field Missions, who must receive the forces. 2. The largest annual expenditure is in passenger airlift (rotation, deployment and repatriation); a slightly lower expenditure with cargo airlift and a significantly lower expenditure associated with cargo sealift. However, sea movement of cargo tends to be the more complicated operation given the large volume of cargo that is being moved and the fact that the cargo usually originates from one or more locations inside the TCC/PCC necessitating, more often than not, a multimodal movement. Inland transportation within a DPKO field mission is also required to deliver the cargo to the TCC/PCC Contingent’s final destination. 3. One of the biggest expenditures is in starting up new peace keeping missions where a large amount of equipment and supplies must be transported to the mission area in a relatively short period of time. This equipment and supplies comprises both United Nations Owned Equipment (UNOE) and Contingent Owned Equipment (COE) belonging to TCC/PCCs. The movement of this UNOE and COE must also be coordinated and prioritized to meet the operational requirements of the field mission and conducted in accordance with the ability of the field mission to receive the goods. The movement of UNOE does not generally apply to this scope of work as there are a number of UN logistics specialists in the areas where UNOE originates. This scope of work, therefore, will be largely restricted to the movement of TCC/PCCs’ COE. 4. The movement of COE generally falls into two categories: (a) strategic movement and (b) tactical or in-theatre movement. Within a given field mission, the UN has a number of logistics/movement control specialists who look after the in-theatre movement via all applicable modes of transport. The UN employs a small number of movement control specialists at its headquarters in New York who plan, arrange, execute and monitor all strategic movement. For major deployments of COE from TCC/PCCs, it is often necessary to dispatch a Movements and Transportation specialist to these countries to oversee operations. There are not, however, sufficient movement control specialists staffed within the UN to meet the surge requirements. The aims of this scope are two. 1) The primary purpose is to obtain a qualified and certified logistics/movement control specialist who will act as the UN’s agent in a TCC/PCC during major movements. Additional specialists may be required at trans-shipment points en-route to or within a DPKO Peacekeeping Mission area. 2) A secondary requirement, during surge requirements at the UNHQ in New York or in field missions, to assist Movement Control Section Staff on an as-required basis on different Movement and Transportation related tasks. Scope of Consultancy 5. Essentially the Movements and Transportation Specialist is the UN’s representative on the ground where the transport originates. The duties and responsibilities of the Movements and Transportation Specialist include liaising with the military and other governmental authorities within the TCC/PCC, providing guidance and assistance to the TCC/PCC on documentation and cargo preparations, liaising with the UN contractors, providing feedback and information to the UNHQ and Field Missions, related to the cargo and passenger movement. 6. During surge requirements, the job may require active participation in UNHQ, New York and or DPKO field missions (located globally) and will require extensive work associated with moving troops and equipment in support of Peace Keeping Operations. The consultant will be expected to work both at the UNHQ, New York or at the designated Field Mission as and when necessary. 7. The project manager in the UN for the purposes of the consultancy will be the Chief of the MCS/LSD/DFS. The Vendor shall appoint a Project Manager with whom the UN will be in contact during the entire execution of the contract for any matter related to the services to be provided. 8. Companies must have the organization and capacity to carry out their duties and responsibilities in a professional manner and must have a minimum capability of fielding two (2) teams of up to five (5) members each simultaneously. 9. The selected Vendor must have the following (mandatory) qualifications/requirements. a. Companies must demonstrate at least five (5) years of international experience providing Movements and Transportation Services or Consultancy Services in this field. b. No conflict of interest. In the interest of impartiality, the vendor must have no vested interests or long term associations with any UN contractors providing Contingent Owned Equipment (COE) cargo movements or broker services. A letter of certification signed by a senior officer attesting that the firm has no such association, shall be provided with the proposal. c. Be able to provide at any given time a minimum of ten (10) qualified personnel. These personnel must have: • Current Dangerous Goods certification by air (IATA) and/or sea (IMDG). Copy of valid certificate shall be included in the offer per each consultant. NOTE: For those certified under IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations, they should include training at least for Categories 1, 2, 3 or 6. • Minimum of two (2) years working experience in at least one mode of transportation with particular emphasis on the planning, preparation, documentation and handling of cargo by air, sea or land. • Minimum education level of High School. • Speak, read and write English fluently, Companies should provide copies of updated curriculum vitae (CV) of all personnel, including copies of personnel’s dangerous goods certificates. CVs should indicate proficiency of languages and level of academic degrees/diplomas attained. d. Companies should provide a detailed program on the training of their Movement and Transportation specialists with particular emphasis on planning, preparation, documentation and handling of cargo by air, sea or land.
