Global Fund Office of the Inspector General (OIG) Investigations and Audits
Global Fund grants are subject to external assurance and investigation work by the Global Fund Office of the Inspector General (OIG). However, OIG does not have the mandate to investigate UNDP and its resources, and the OIG and the UNDP Office of Audit and Investigations (OAI) have separately agreed on a set of arrangements for cooperation and coordination in terms of investigations. Consequently, if notification of an OIG investigation is received from the Global Fund, the Country Office (CO) should urgently consult with the UNDP Global Fund/Health Implementation Support Team and OAI on how to proceed.
OIG does not have audit authority over UNDP. As in the case of investigations, arrangements have separately been agreed between OIG and OAI for cooperation and coordination in terms of audit activities. Further guidance to COs on OIG audit when UNDP is Principal Recipient (PR) for Global Fund projects is available here.
Should a UNDP CO where UNDP is PR receive notification of an OIG audit, please contact email@example.com of the Global Fund/Health Implementation Support Team and OAI for urgent consultation on how to proceed.
