The Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) provides the foundation for UNDP’s global thematic work. BPPS provides the tools, analysis and capacities that country offices need to make a real difference in UNDP’s practice areas. Accordingly, BPPS is the corporate sponsor of Knowledge Management for UNDP and is responsible for ensuring that knowledge created at any level of the organisation will be made available to all staff to enhance organisational effectiveness. It does this through the Development Impact Group (DIG) which provides a corporate service delivering a core set of knowledge sharing solutions to the entire organization. All activities of the DIG will support the goals and outcomes established in UNDP’s Strategic Plan 2014-2017.
Many core elements and functionality of UNDP’s Knowledge Management platform are transitioning from Drupal 6 based Teamworks to Yammer, a Microsoft Office 365 product. However, Teamworks will continue to host existing and future online Public Dialogues such as “The Rio Dialogues”, “The World Humanitarian Summit”, “The World We Want 2030”, and “Habitat III.” Yammer, on the other hand, will serve to provide online collaboration within UNDP and for One UN cross-agency work. The combination of these tools will enable UNDP and external partners to leverage the collective knowledge of communities, individuals, programmes and projects in the most useful, cost-effective manner.
Teamworks/Public Dialogues and Yammer will allow UNDP staff and partners to:
Duties and Responsibilities
Decommissioning of Public Dialogues
Infrastructure System Administration
Documentation of configuration settings
Communication and advocacy
