IPSAS Project Status

Financial Policy & Transition Workstream

  • Current Status:

  • All IPSAS standards that have been issued to date, thirty-five have been identified as applicable to UNDP, which should be implemented by 1 January 2012. Of these, thirty four policy papers (98%) were finalized, discussed and cleared with the United Nations Board of Auditors (UNBOA) and shared with the Audit Advisory Committee (AAC) and the Office of Audit and Investigations (OAI). This includes validation of the IPSAS standards applicable to UNDP

  • The Financial Regulations & Rules (FR&R) updated with IPSAS changes and presented to the ACABQ. ACABQ expressed its no objection to the Executive Board’s approval of the proposed amendments

  • Presentation of the revised FR&R to the Executive Board (September 2011)

  • Next Steps:

  • Finalize the one pending policy paper on Common Premises, in collaboration with other Agencies.

  • Revisions to the procedures to be completed by end-September. 90% completed by now.

  • As new IPSAS standards are issued periodically, their applicability will be ascertained by UNDP in consultation with UNBOA, and implemented accordingly.
