Procurement Analyst, NPSA8 – National Рosition
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are core principles at UNDP:  we value diversity as an expression of the multiplicity of nations and cultures where we operate, we foster inclusion as a way of ensuring all personnel are empowered to contribute to our mission, and we ensure equity and fairness in all our actions. Taking a ‘leave no one behind’ approach to our diversity efforts means increasing representation of underserved populations. People who identify as belonging to marginalized or excluded populations are strongly encouraged to apply. Learn more about working at UNDP including our values and inspiring stories.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
Since the full-scale military aggression by Russian forces in February 2022 (hereafter, the “war”), Ukraine has been facing unprecedented threats to human security— thousands of women, men, and children have lost their lives, all sorts of life-line infrastructures have been destroyed, and millions of people have been forced to leave their homes. There are no prospects for a ceasefire or peace in near future and the negative impacts of the war in Ukraine have been spreading to global peace and security. 
The primary objective of the Transformational Recovery for Human Security in Ukraine Project (the “Project”) is to contribute to achieving transformational recovery from widespread death, destruction, displacement, and suffering caused by the war in Ukraine. It aims to promote human security in Ukraine by undertaking concerted immediate actions against interconnected and multidimensional threats that Ukraine is currently facing. To maximise positive results for transformational recovery, the Project interventions will focus on the following 6 priority thematic areas for the Project outputs. 
Output 1 (Infrastructure restoration): Critical infrastructures and facilities restored to meet immediate needs to provide essential public services and establish enabling conditions for transformational recovery. 
Output 2 (Mine action & Victim Assistance): Capacities of mine action authorities and emergency service responders expanded to protect the civilian population from mine/explosive ordnances and secure a safe environment for people’s living and socio-economic activities. 
Output 3 (Debris removal and recycling): Debris, waste and environmentally hazardous materials cleared and dangerous damaged structures safely demolished for swift reconstruction of housing and public socio-economic facilities. 
Output 4 (Economic revitalization): Local economy revitalized by strengthening and expanding the private sector in targeted sectors through immediate response solutions in developing capabilities, improving employability, and enhancing business-enabling conditions. 
Output 5 (Government Recovery Coordination): Integrity and transparency of government mechanisms and processes for crisis management and recovery process strengthened at both national and local levels. 
Output 6 (Access to justice and human rights): Capacities of national and local state and non-state actors enhanced to promote human rights and ensure access to justice for all people, with a focus on IDPs and vulnerable groups.
Under Output 2, the Project seeks to urgently equip the local authorities with a UNDP developed model for victim assistance in mine action based on the international standard IMAS 13.10. 
The vast majority of victim assistance, including emergency and ongoing medical care, rehabilitation, psychological and social support, facilitation of access to education social and economic inclusion, and related laws and policies, is managed outside of the mine action sector, although the sector provides important linkages. This support should be delivered according to norms and standards that exist within the health, rehabilitation, disability, education, employment, social protection and development sectors.
