Posted 2 years ago

The UN Secretary-General established the UN SDG Action Campaign to inspire people and organizations from all backgrounds and every part of the world to take actions to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, while holding decision-makers to account for progress society-wide. The UN SDG Action Campaign is hosted and supported by UNDP and is based in Bonn (Germany) with a lean team that marshals rapid support for new initiatives as opportunities arise and provides partners with on-demand strategic creative services that inspire SDG action with an engaged community of activists and concerned individuals.

The UN SDG Action Campaign is working closely with cities and local governments to showcase how they are actively contributing to implement Agenda 2030, accelerating transformative action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for all, and everywhere.

Within this context, the UN SDG Action Campaign is seeking to recruit a Procurement Officer on Local Public Private Partnerships to support municipal service provision in support of SDGs. Local and regional governments are already responsible of over 65% of the SDG targets, most of them linked to basic service provision from water, sanitation, mobility, climate action, health or education. A big part of that service provision happens in partnership with private sector providers, municipalities across the world need to innovate and improve their procurement procedures and establish more strategic relations with the private sector within the framework of the accelerated action required to implement the SDGs in time for year 2030.

SDGs are genuinely interlinked with service provision at local level. To be able to deliver on Agenda 2030, local and regional governments need to establish contractual relationships with capable and trustworthy private sector providers, mostly through PPPs (Public Private Partnerships). The Procurement Officer will support UNDP cities and their partners to generate knowledge through the exchange of experiences and by sharing common concerns and possible solutions to improve the effectiveness of PPPs for SDG delivery at local level.

The Procurement Officer will support participant local and regional governments to improve their PPPs efficiency to align and deliver on Agenda 2030.
