The UNMSM Operational Guidelines have been added as a related policy. The Guidelines outline budgetary, financial, and procurement procedures for the resources available centrally within UNDP to cover UN Mandated Security Measures (UNMSM). These requirements are undertaken in response to United Nations Security Management System (UNSMS) policy directives and recommendations made within the Security Risk management (SRM) process to ensure security compliance in duty stations.

The Framework of Accountability for Security policy was updated to align with recent UNSMS policy updates, clearly define accountability/role of the UNV and UNCDF Executive Heads, the most senior UNDP staff at the country level following the RC/RR delinking process, as well as the roles of the Agency Country Security Focal Points at the country level. Other editorial and straightforward changes have also been made to streamline content.

4. Revised Aviation Risk Management, September 29th, 2016

The Air Travel Risk Management Guidelines have been revised to reflect a new UN Security Management System Air Travel Policy. These guidelines are applicable to all UNDP Personnel on official travel via Commercial Air (Transport) Operators, UN Chartered Flights and Donated Flights. To facilitate booking of flights, a Global Booking List of Airlines Pre-approved for Travel by UNDP Personnel has been made available on the UNDP Intranet via the following link. For Airlines which are not pre-approved (and therefore not included in the UNDP Global Booking List), the guidelines provide for an evidence-based risk assessment methodology, enabling informed decision making by the UNDP Managers with Signature Authority before use of these airlines.

2. Security Policy and Framework of Accountability for UNDP Managers and Personnel within the UN Security Management System, July 25th, 2011

Security Management chapter of POPP has been updated with Security Policy and Framework of Accountability for UNDP Managers and Personnel within the UN Security Management System. The revised Security Policy focuses on "how to stay rather than when to go." It is about the management rather than the avoidance of risk. It also encompasses issues regarding the complementarity between UNDSS and Security Office/BoM, and clarification on access to security funds, medical and casualty evacuations and lines of authority. The purpose of the Framework for Accountability is to provide clear guidance on how to enable the conduct of UNDP activities within the United Nations Security Management System, while ensuring the safety, security and well-being of personnel, premises and assets.
