Background information - IPMG

UNOPS strategic focus places increased emphasis on national capacity development and sustainable approaches to project management, procurement and infrastructure services. A key objective is to be recognized as an organization that delivers world-class infrastructure and project management, which is both economically and socially sustainable, even in the most challenging environments. To achieve this goal, UNOPS has established the Infrastructure and Project Management Group (IPMG). 

Within UNOPS, it is IPMG’s objective to serve the organization’s personnel and partners by broadening their infrastructure and project management capabilities, while disseminating best practices in both of these areas. Through this work, the group helps facilitate the successful delivery of programs and projects around the world.

To achieve its objectives, IPMG has established six interrelated and interdependent technical streams, namely, Strategic Initiatives, Standards, Engagement Assurance, Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI), Grant Support and Transformation, that are supported by the Portfolio Support team. IPMG is managed overall by the Director of IPMG.

The GESI team works to strengthen UNOPS commitment to gender equality, diversity and inclusion. It mobilizes efforts to promote equal rights and opportunities for people to live full lives, develop methodologies and tools to improve program and project outcomes in infrastructure and project management. The team also assists in promoting UNOPS capacity in GESI at the highest levels in related fields.
