Portfolio of Funds & Joint Programmes
Overview

The UNDP MPTF Office offers different types of fund management services.

The first, which accounts for the major share, are "UN Multi-Partner Trust Funds (MPTFs) and Joint Programmes (JPs)" that utilizes the pass-through fund management modality for which the UNDP MPTF Office is appointed as the Administrative Agent (AA) by the Participating UN Organizations.

The second involves “National Funds” that also use the pass-through fund management modality and the UNDP MPTF Office is appointed as AA by National Governments. In this case, the MPTF Office can transfer funds approved by the multi-stakeholder Steering Committee directly to national entities, based on capacity and related fiduciary assessments. The national entities subsequently utilize the transferred funds to implement approved activities in accordance with National Regulatory Framework, provided national financial regulations and rules do not contravene the principles of UNDP’s Financial Regulations and Rules.

The third deals with “Fiscal Agent” services which the MPTF Office provides for the Expanded Delivering as One Funding Window for Achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (EFW). In this case funds are held in trust on behalf of the EFW Steering Committee until transferred to another MPTF either administered by the MPTF Office or another agency. While the amount received as "Fiscal Agent" is included in the total portfolio size handled by the MPTF Office, in determining the MPTF Office AA portfolio, the funds handled as "Fiscal Agent" will only be counted as and when it is transferred to the MPTF Office as AA.

In addition, the MPTF Office publicly discloses “Direct Costs” that are allocated for the various MPTF Secretariats or Support Offices (such as the Peacebuilding Support Office for the PBF), in accordance with the Fund TOR and/or approval of the concerned Steering Committees.

Finally under each MPTF/JP (as well as for the total MPTF Office portfolio) “Interest” accrued on the uncommitted balance of funds held by the MPTF Office and/or Participating UN Organizations, in accordance with their respective Financial Regulations and Rules, are fully disclosed.
