Information and Communications Technology Policies

The policies in this section cover UNFPA ICT Policies and Procedures. The objective of the UNFPA ICT Policies and Procedures is to disseminate UNFPA's ICT responsibilities, policies and procedural controls to all organizational units of the Organization and for application by relevant staff.  To create and sustain an enabling environment that provides effective, efficient, and innovative ICT solutions, the MIS Branch defines and revises systems, hardware, software, networks, and communications standards and usage policies.

As much as possible, this section is aimed at giving users an understanding and appreciation of relevant ICT policies and procedures, which have been established in compliance with the organizational policies and mandates, and generally accepted industry best practices.

Please note that the Policies and Procedures Manual is necessarily a "living document" subject to changes and updates. All policies, even those needing minor or substantive revision are  official policy of the UNFPA and therefore are in effect.
