Summary of Changes/Comments
May 05, 2020 - The purpose of the Electronic Signatures policy and procedures is to guide UNDP units in their use of electronic signatures. The policy and procedures define the requirements for e-signatures and ask that UNDP Country Offices and business units review their business processes with the aim of eliminating handwritten signatures and replacing them with either their electronic counterparts, or with email or other system-embedded workflow approvals when possible or permitted. The policy and procedures cover e-signatures uses in UNDP’s internal operations, as well as transactions with external parties, where the use of electronic signatures has been agreed by the parties.
