How does UNDP do business

UNDP in the State of Kuwait uses the National Execution Modality to implement development projects. The Supreme Council for Planning and Development (SCPD) is endowed with the role of national execution. SCPD is responsible for recruitment and procurement of goods and services for development projects. Recruitment of project personnel is carried through a Project Recruitment Panels (PRP). The PRP is chaired by a member of SCPD and is comprised of UNDP and a representative from the national implementing partner. UNDP is to ensure that the selection is made in a competitive manner from a pool of at least three screened applicants.

Procurement of goods is carried through a Government decreed committee aimed to achieve cost-effectiveness in the procurement of project goods and services by ensuring that purchasing decisions are based on open, competitive bidding among potential suppliers. The Committee is chaired by a representative from SCPD and comprised of representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, national implementing partner and UNDP. Relevant programme staff members from UNDP are present as observers. All contracts are issued by SCPD.
