Statement of understanding of the conditions of the internship

I understand that, should I be accepted as an intern by the IPC-IG/UNDP, the following conditions will apply:

  1. Status:

    Although not considered a staff member of the UNDP, I shall be subject to the authority of the Administrator and the authority delegated by him to the Heads of Bureau and Offices. I understand that I am not entitled to the privileges and immunities accorded by member states to the UNDP, its officials and staff members.

  2. Financial Support:

    UNDP will not pay me for my internship but will provide a monthly stipend in accordance with the provisions of the UNDP Internship policy. The stipend is intended to help cover basic daily expenses, such as meals and transportation; all other expenses connected with it will be borne by me or my sponsoring Government or institution.

  3. Medical Health and Life Coverage:

    The IPC-IG/UNDP accepts no responsibility for costs arising from fatality, illness and/or accidents incurred during the internship; therefore, I must carry adequate and regular medical and life insurance. I will be covered by the following health and life insurance during the internship period.

  4. Passports and Visas:

    I am responsible for obtaining the necessary passport and visas as required. The UNDP will issue only a letter stating the acceptance of an individual as an intern and the conditions governing the internship.

  5. Confidentiality and Publication of Information:

    As an intern, I will respect the confidentiality of information that I collect or am exposed to at the IPC-IG/UNDP. No reports or papers may be published based on information obtained from the IPC-IG/UNDP without the explicit written authorisation of the Head of Bureau or Office.

  6. Employment Prospects:

    The UNDP Internship Programme is not connected with employment and there is no expectancy of such.
