Summary of Changes/Comments
June 01, 2021 - Clauses 41-42, 47 and 49 of the Formulate Programmes and Projects policy have been updated to align with the new PPM section “Prepare Fully Costed Budgets for Projects”, which aims to assist offices to fully cost and budget project activities.

April 30, 2021 - The Vertical Funds Needs Assessment Tool (VF-NAT), as well as a VF NAT user guide and an FAQ file have been added under Procedure No. 1.1 ALT of the Formulate Development Projects procedures of the Formulate Programmes & Projects policy. The VF-NAT has been developed as a part of the OAI GEF audit management actions. The VF-NAT will be piloted between May-Dec 2021 when new VF programming requests are received. After the pilot phase, following a review and refinement , the tool will be rolled out in support of VF programming, in conjunction with the IWP process for 2022.

April 15, 2021 - The policy has been updated to include a clause for projects where UNDP plans to engage with the non-UN security sector that the UN’s Human Rights Due Diligence Policy (HRDDP) applies which aims to ensure UNDP does not provide support to entities committing grave violations of international humanitarian, human rights and refugee law. The Formulate Development Projects procedures have been updated to include the UNDP HRDDP Implementation Framework Tool as a risk assessment tool if UNDP plans to engage with the non-UN security sector.

February 11, 2021 - A one-stop-shop link to all environmental vertical fund (GEF & GCF) templates, procedures and policies in the POPP has been added as a guideline under Procedure No. 1.1 ALT of the Formulate Development Projects procedures of the Formulate Programmes & Projects policy. The link is in response to audit and provides a one-stop shop guidance map on GEF & GCF templates, procedures and policies in the POPP.

January 29, 2021 - The management actions to the OAI GEF Audit that have been completed to date have been uploaded to the POPP. This includes the RACI, the Delegation of Authority Letter and Guidance on GEF Project Revisions.

January 15, 2021 - The RACI (Roles/Accountability/Consult/Inform) matrix is now available to clarify the roles and accountabilities for the GEF project cycle from origination to project financial closure, including oversight. This is only applicable for GEF-funded projects. It is linked in step 1.1 ALT of the Formulate Development Projects procedures.

Feb 04, 2020 - The CPD template has been updated to respond to changes brought by the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework. [Formulate Programmes and Projects procedure table (Step 6)].

Dec 03, 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.
