For every child, a chance

UNICEF has adopted the Harmonized Approach to Cash Transfers (HACT) as an approach for obtaining assurance that results have been achieved in line with resource utilization. It aims at managing risk related to cash transfers made to implementing partners in support of programme implementation, reducing partner transaction costs and allowing progressive use of national systems for management and accountability of results and resources.

 

Job organizational context :

The GJP for Implementing Partnership Management is to be used in a medium size Country Office (CO) and reports to the Deputy Representative or Chief of Programme, Monitoring and Evaluation (PME). The GJP can also be used in a large (high throughput)/complex high threat CO to support a level 4 specialist. The difference between a Level 4 and Level 3 Implementing Partnership Management Specialist is that at Level 4, the post is more strategic and authoritative for technical support, quality assurance and risk management in the management of implementing partnerships due to circumstances of the CO context and has greater responsibility to design and formulate strategies and processes. At Level 3, the post is contributing to implementing and monitoring implementing partnership management activities. COs establish when either L4 or L3 is appropriate.
