Summary of Changes/Comments
June 13, 2022 - The policy has been updated to incorporate evaluation aspects in programming quality standards as follows: (1) Specific guidelines on CPD evaluation plans have been added to the section on “Management, Monitoring, and Evaluation” in accordance with UNDP’s Evaluation Guidelines; (2) UNDP’s accountability to the Executive Board for the evaluation function has been reflected in paragraph 15 and (3) a link to the IEO’s mandate has been added to paragraph 8.

June 09, 2022 - The Programme Quality Assurance Design Stage Rating Tool has been updated to include criteria to assess digitalization and volunteerism. The new tool is applicable to Country Programme Documents submitted to the Board from June 2023.

April 19, 2021 - The paragraph on programming principles has been updated to reflect UNDP’s five programming principles: Leave No One Behind, Human Rights, Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment, Sustainability and Resilience and Accountability.

December 04, 2019 - Updates were made across the programme and project management chapter of the POPP to reflect the shift from the UNDAF to the UN Cooperation Framework. Updates were also made under programme appraisal to reflect the shift from the HQ PAC, which quality assured completed CPDs at the end of programme design, to the IPAC, which assesses the programme’s theory of change closer to the start of the process as a learning function.
