Window 2: Strategic Support

Strategic support functions are defined as all non-programmatic interventions aimed at delivering UN Programmes efficiently and effectively. This window reflects resources in support of the strategic support functions and includes change management activities associated with the transition from the agency based model to the UN System based model.

Results funded through this second window include:

                                I.            UN Budgetary Framework

In accordance with UNDG guidelines, a UN budgetary framework includes the following elements:

  1. UN Country Fund, including fund management mechanisms
  2. UN Resource analysis, clearly outlining core UN core contributions, UN non core contributions and remaining resource gap
  3. Joint resource mobilization strategy , focused on mobilizing resources to close the resource gap

The results included under this section focus on the management and analysis of UN resource utilization aimed to further enhance UN spending and targeting. Other results focus on the joint mobilization of the resources required to cover the resource gap

 II. UN Operations (including Common Services)

The One UN Operations element articulates the activities of the UN to harmonize and align different agencies business operations, including procurement, ICT, human resources and finance systems. One of the main elements supporting to ongoing work in One UN Operations is the development of Common Services. Based on cost benefit analysis results, common services used by all UN agencies are provided centrally rather than by each agency separately, drastically reducing costs and/or enhancing quality associated with these services compared to the situation where each agency would provide these services itself. Example Common Services include a UN Travel Desk, ICT support, UN Procurement and UN Security Services.

In the long run, the UN “Excom” agencies in PNG (UNDP, UNICEF and UNFPA) plan to integrate the majority of their administrative support services (Procurement, ICT, HR and Finance). After the initial pilot phase, other non Excom agencies will decide whether they can/will join this integration effort.
