The Office of Audit and Investigations (OAI) reports to the Administrator and is responsible for internal audit and investigation services to UNDP and its affiliated entities. OAI provides independent, objective assurance on the effectiveness of risk management and the effectiveness and adequacy of internal controls.
The number of allegations received through OAI’s reporting mechanisms fluctuates month to month. OAI needs to engage experienced investigators on contract from time to time when the number of cases requiring assessment and investigation is above staff capacity. For this purpose, OAI enlarges its pool of LTA holders (maximum 3 consultants) who are suitably skilled investigators to call upon as required.
