Under the leadership of the Deputy Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General, Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Somalia (DSRSG/RC/HC), the RCO, through the pooled fund enabling services project will enhance quality control, promote transparency and ensure value for money by providing expert advice, risk management, oversight and enhanced coordination. Specifically, the project will focus on:
• The implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework, the National Development Plan (NDP-9) and Agenda 2030 commitments
• Coordinating work on the humanitarian-development-peacebuilding nexus and cross-cutting issues that assist those most in need: durable solutions for displacement affected populations, environment and climate, youth, gender and resilience.
• Providing efficient and proven solutions through system-wide services such as risk management; accountability to affected populations; regional coordination offices; and tailored advice.
• Improving coherence, coordination and complementarity of UN programming, good offices and advocacy in line with Agenda 2030 and the UN Somalia Cooperation Framework.
The UN Somalia Risk Management Unit (RMU) is agile, flexible, and responsive to evolving needs from clients, partners, UN system organizations, government and NGOs. The RMU develops and manages products and technological tools aimed at improving information sharing across UN organizations. These tools include the Contractor Information Management System (CIMS), Capacity Injection Reporting Tool (CIRT and RMU Online Learning Management System (LMS). These represent global good practices and have been adopted by the UN in other country contexts.
Under the direct supervision of the Information and Database Manager and overall guidance of the RMU’s Team Leader, the System Software & Database will be responsible for supporting the Information and Database Officer, in the provision of specialized and technical support required to run and maintain all RMU Somalia systems as well as other replicated countries.
