Background

UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.

The United Nations Development Programme/ Programme of Assistance for the Palestinian People (UNDP/ PAPP) operates in an extremely volatile environment, which requires flexibility when designing/ applying strategic programmatic frameworks to measure achievements of results. Results Based Management (RBM) is a broad management strategy adopted by UNDP and aimed at achieving improved performance and demonstrable results, which includes good planning, monitoring, evaluation, learning and feeding back into planning. A strong and streamlined RBM system, that moves beyond ensuring compliance with corporate requirements, and uses RBM to inform strategic direction and priorities, as well as programme/ project design and implementation is key to strengthen the organizations overall impact on the development of the State of Palestine. 

 
An RBM Team is being established with the following objectives:
 
•Ensure adherence to corporate requirements with quality input and in a timely manner;
•Ensure timely and quality monitoring and evaluation of projects in compliance with UNDP standards and donors requirements in order to improve programming and achieve results; 
•Use monitoring and evaluation for organizational learning, to inform management decisions, adjust ongoing programmes and orient future directions; and 
•Use quantitative and qualitative evidence generated through monitoring and evaluation to prepare quality reports, communicate achievements, position UNDP and mobilize resources. 
 
The RBM Team supports project and programme staff to ensure they apply a common approach, standardized tools, and effective means to plan, monitor and evaluate their projects. Moreover, the RBM Team works closely with other units at UNDP/ PAPP, such as the Communication Unit and the Business Support Services Centre (BSSC) to ensure the successful achievement of the above-mentioned objectives. The RBM Team, through the RBM Specialist, also acts as the focal point for the RBAS RBM Team and is responsible for coordinating the response to requests/ tasks coming from HQ/ RBAS, Deputy Special Representative, etc.
 
As a part of the RBM Team the RBM Coordinator will be responsible for supporting all RBM efforts at project level, including quality assurance and compliance. The RBM Coordinator will have a primary reporting line to the RBM Specialist, and secondary reporting line to the Assistant Special Representative (Gaza and West Bank/ East Jerusalem respectively). The RBM Specialist will provide strategic guidance and support to the RBM Coordinator on a regular basis.
 
UNDP/PAPP is seeking a candidate to fill the position of Result-Based Management Coordinator with primary reporting (technical) to the Result-Based Management Specialist and secondary reporting (Administrative) to the Assistant Special Representative. The expected duration of the contract is 12 months and the Service Contract extension will be conditioned on the satisfactory performance evaluation as well as availability of funding under the project.
