NOTE Due to the nature of UNHRD process in responding to emergencies, in order to meet the urgent requests from the UNHRD Partners, it might be required to deviate from UNHRD Standard Operating Procedures. These cases might due to: • request to physically deliver the partner’s cargo without formal acceptance of the PI but have e-mail or verbal assurance that they will do it; • request to physically start dispatching cargo for WFP without receipt of ZPO or the approval Memo from the relevant authority; • request to deploy Field Team staff without PI/ZPO
In order to manage and track above scenarios, such cases occurring, the following has to be done:
- Hub Manager or his/her Officer in Charge to approach Network Coordinator or his/her Deputy by e-mail for approval, prior to commencing the operations/dispatches by copying Network Coordination Cell Operational team (NCC Ops) [UNHRD.NCC.Ops.Team@wfp.org] - If approved, the operation commences and the hub keeps the NCC Ops in copy. - NCC Ops to follow up with the respective hubs until the request is closed. - NCC Ops to tracking and provide report to the Network Coordinator and Hub Managers on quarterly basis on above cases
