Resource Mobilization Roles and Responsibilities within UNICEF

United Nations Children's Fund | Published September 29, 2015  -  Deadline October 12, 2015
cpvs

The purpose of this consultancy is to update UNICEF’s resource mobilization accountabilities framework with clear roles and responsibilities. To be ‘fit for purpose’ in a fast evolving and highly competitive aid environment, UNICEF needs a clear accountabilities framework to guide and facilitate coordination. Clear accountabilities are essential especially in an organization like UNICEF where resource mobilization is spread across different functions and levels. If not defined properly, the organization faces a risk of ad-hoc and disjointed resource mobilization activities. This leads to reputational risk with the external stakeholders, especially donors, which view the organization uncoordinated with mixed messages and viewpoints. In addition, poorly negotiated funding agreements set inappropriate precedence and undermine UNICEF’s positioning and strategic engagement.

Development of detailed business case for Global Service Delivery model at the UN Secretariat

United Nations Secretariat | Published January 7, 2016  -  Deadline January 20, 2016
cpvs

The Secretary-General proposes a phased approach to the development of a global service delivery model at the UN Secretariat. The global service delivery model of the UN Secretariat will consolidate fragmented administrative structures within and across duty stations, as appropriate. A client-focused and performance-driven delivery model will: (a) simplify the administrative framework, functions and workflows; (b) specialize administrative responsibilities under distinct roles; and (c) consolidate administrative capacity across the Secretariat. Pursuant to the guidance received from the General Assembly, the advantages and disadvantages of relocating administrative functions to a shared service environment will be carefully analysed, including through a cost-benefit analysis that will estimate the projected initial investment, recurring costs, risk and mitigation factors, business continuity (resilience) as well as information on the expected qualitative improvements and greater efficiency and effectiveness of service delivery and cost savings, with baseline information and benchmarks for measuring progress. Furthermore, lessons learned and best practices will be included. A comprehensive global service delivery model risk assessment and management plan must be developed as part of the detailed proposal for the model. Understanding and setting appropriate risk tolerance for different clients and operational contexts will be an important aspect of a global but differentiated global service delivery model, particularly in a dynamic field environment. This will ensure accountability for both mandate delivery and compliance with all applicable rules and regulations. The consultants will report to the UN GSDM (Global Service Delivery Model) project team and is to provide specialized technical expertise for data analysis and the technical preparation of the business case. The consultants is to provide regular reporting on status of the consultancy work that documents the work assignments and recommended options, including detailed cost-benefit analysis. In particular, the consultancy will focus on the collection and in depth technical analysis of data related to administrative support services in the Secretariat and related activities needed for the implementation of the methodology.

GSA MULTIPLE AWARD SCHEDULE (MAS) SOLICITATION. The Greater Southwest Acquisition Center, Fort Worth, Texas, is issuing a refreshed solicitation effective April 29, 2015 electronically. IMPORTANT: CURRENT SCHEDULE 056 CONTRACTORS DO NOT NEED TO RESPOND TO THIS ANNOUNCEMENT. The following changes are effective with previous recent refreshes and should be noted: UPC Data: A major piece of the ongoing MAS Transformation initiative involves the standardization of part number data. This is to be accomplished through the submission of Manufacturer Part Numbers (MPNs) for all products, and Universal Product Code Type A (UPC-A) data for all products for which this data is commercially available. This data will become the cornerstone for several other critical pieces of this initiative, to include the incorporation of a formatted price list into the eOffer and eMod platforms. MPN data is already required for all products. However, UPC-A data is not, and therefore this requirement is being added under provision SCP-FSS-001, Instructions Applicable to All Offerors. The provision has been updated to incorporate language that specifies the additional requirement for submission of UPC-A data for all products for which this data is commercially available. Existing Schedule contracts will be bilaterally modified at a later date (via the mass modification process) to require submission of MPN and UPC-A data. Environmental language change: An update to SIN descriptions has teken effect to indicate that commercially available products meeting specific environmental attributes (recycled content, biobased content, and/or Design for the Environment) may be available from vendors under that SIN. The following SIN updates occured: Schedule 56: SIN 357 11C - a note was added as a new paragraph directly below the existing SIN description to read: NOTE: Commercially available products under this SIN may include items which meet the requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines (recycled content) Program. In SIN 412 19 - a note was added directly after the SIN title so it reads: Transformers - NOTE: Commercially available products under this SIN may include fluid-filled transformers which meet the requirements of the U.S. Department of Agriculture BioPreferred (biobased) Program. In SIN 563 8 - text was revised to read: Biodegradable and non-biodegradable, may include products which meet the requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Comprehensive Procurement Guidelines (recycled content) Program or the U.S. Department of Agriculture BioPreferred (biobased) Program. SIN 641 6 - a note as added as a new paragraph directly below the existing SIN description to read: NOTE: Commercially available septic system treatments may include products which meet the requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Design for the Environment-Labeled Products Program. Schedule 56 has implemented the following changes effective January 1, 2015 and previously incorporated through Refresh 24: - Revise and clarify SIN descriptions for the following SINs (please review solicitation SIN descriptions for updated titles and descriptions): 253 40, 253 48A, 253 48C, 253 49, 253 50, 253 51, 361 20A, 361 99, 641 6, 361 10A, 361 10B, 361 10D, 361 10E, 361 10G, 361 10H, 361 50, 206 4, 206 12, 563 4, 563 6, 563 8, 563 23, 563 25, 563 27, 563 28, 563 29, 563 30, 563 99, 206 3, 383 2, 383 5, 383 10, 412 3, 412 51, 412 52, 412, 99, 361 05, 563 16, 412 52 - Consolidate SINs covering similar products: SIN 641 1 and 641 2 are terminated and merged with SIN 641 6 SIN 563 15 is terminated and merged with SIN 563 16 SIN 412 8 is terminated and merged with SIN 412 3 SIN 361 01 is being terminated and merged with SIN 361 05 - Identify more products to green in accordance with Executive Order 13514: SIN 383 5 - Withdraw set aside designations for the following SINs: SIN 361 20A SIN 361 01 (SIN 361 01 is being terminated and merged with SIN 361 05) SIN 412 8 (SIN 412 8 is being terminated and merged with SIN 412 3). All offers containing the affected SINs received prior to refresh will be reviewed and required to be in compliance with current solicitation requirements prior to award. Contractors will work with the CO/CS assigned to the offer to ensure products offered will be listed under the correct SIN(s) prior to award. Current schedule contractors will work with their PCO to ensure changes are captured through the modification process. __________________________________________ Notice: The GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) program has recently experienced a tremendous increase in new offers. Due to the large number of new offers currently in process, it could take up to 12 months before your offer is evaluated. GSA's practice is to evaluate offers in the order in which they are received. However, GSA may give priority to processing certain offers when circumstances dictate, such as when a federal agency Contracting Officer specifically requests an expedited offer review in order to meet a pending requirement that will be procured under the MAS program, or when there a need for GSA to bring strategically critical new products or services to market in order to meet federal customer needs. Please note with this refresh you must complete the mandatory Readiness Assessment free self evaluation, available on the Vendor Support Center website at https://vsc.gsa.gov.
