The Policy and Procedures for Selection, Registration and Assessment of IPs outlines the selection process UNFPA must undertake prior to working with an implementing partner. It includes information on undertaking a competitive process, registering the partner in PIMS, assessing the partner and signing an agreement with the implementing partner.
The Implementing Partner Agreement is the legal framework signed by UNFPA and the implementing partner. It is comprised of two parts, the model form and the General Terms and Conditions. Together, the two parts lay out the respective responsibilities of the organization and UNFPA in the formulation, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of workplans; Arrangements for the disbursement of funds; Arrangements for evaluation, internal and external audit, financial and non-financial reporting, and other requirements in respect of accountability for UNFPA resources; and other general terms and conditions of the partnership. It is valid for the entire duration of the programme cycle.
The IP Agreement Standard Amendment for IPs Implementing Social Marketing is signed, along with the IP agreement, with IPs who are undertaking social marketing activities on behalf of UNFPA.
The UN Agency to Agency Contribution Agreement form is the standard template to be used when transferring funds from one UN agency to another for the purpose of programmatic activities.
The UNFPA NGO General Cooperation MoU is a template which can be used as a basic or “umbrella” agreement to lay out the general framework of working together. It is for non-financial partnerships and does not replace the need for a specific Co-financing Agreement (in case a contribution is made to UNFPA), an IP Agreement (in case the NGO will act as a UNFPA implementing partner), a Grant Agreement (in case the NGO will receive a grant from UNFPA to strengthen the institution), or a contract for professional services when undertaking procurement.
The Policy and Procedures for Using Grants as a Funding Modality outlines UNFPA’s use of grants to provide a small financial contribution (‘seed money’) to a community based not-for profit or civil society organization solely for the purpose of building the internal capacity of the organization.
This policy and procedures outlines the process for the management of cash transfers to implementing partners and identifies the control activities designed to mitigate the most significant risks inherent to this business process.
