Summary of Changes/Comments
March 17, 2023 - The policy has been updated to reflect UNDP's transition to its new cloud-based management platform Quantum in January 2023, replacing its previous ATLAS system.

May 11, 2020 - The CDR Bridge Navigation Guide has been linked in clause 17 of the DIM policy. The document offers guidance on how to use the CDR Bridge platform, including how to register implementing partners. The guide is also available in the POPP templates library (POPP-11-3234).

May 07, 2020 - Clauses 15 through 21 of the DIM policy have been updated to reflect the new CDR Bridge Platform, a digital platform that will be used for certification and as a central repository for CDRs going forward. CDRs will automatically be generated from Atlas after closure of each quarter by OFM and the CDRs delivered to the platform without any manual intervention from UNDP Offices. Offices will be required to review the CDRs in the new platform and have the option to send the reports electronically (via email), and have implementing partners certify the CDRs electronically in the platform. With the launch of the CDR Bridge, uploading of CDRs to the former SharePoint site is discontinued.
