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 programmes and projects around the world.

To achieve its objectives, IPMG has established three interrelated and interdependant work streams, namely, Strategic Positioning, Standards, and Implementation Support. IPMG is managed overall by the Director of IPMG and supported by a Programme Support Unit, which includes a Programme Management Office. The Implementation Support Work Stream supports the country offices with the adequate design, planning, implementation, monitoring and closure of projects, thereby contributing towards successful delivery and increased partner satisfaction. This work stream bridges standard and capacity building with the provision of practical support in the application of UNOPS approach to the delivery of infrastructure and project management services, as well as specific expertise in inter alia Project Management, Engineering Architecture and Grants Management.
