Summary of Changes/Comments
February 16, 2021 - Changes made to the Individual Contract policy are in alignment with similar changes in United Nations Security Management System (UNSMS) policies. With the abolishment of the Security Level System and replacement with the Security Risk Management (SRM) methodology, relevant security related insertions in the policy have been modified. These insertions include replacing terminologies on “Security Levels” with “Security Risks”, including ICs within the security warden system as per UNSMS applicability policy, and local UNSMS arrangements, including “evacuation procedures” as a “risk avoidance” measure, and including IC’s personal responsibility to submit Security Clearance requests via the TRIP platform prior to travel.
