Vetting and due diligence measures are in place to ensure that UNRWA does not engage with any third party on the Consolidated UN Sanctions List. To do this, we vet staff and personnel, donating individuals and entities, beneficiaries, implementing partners, vendors, suppliers and UNRWA payees.
There are many aspects of our due diligence and vetting work, and different departments contribute to it. Below are some of those processes:
- Any contributions to the Agency must comply with the UNRWA Vetting/Due Diligence Policy, as overseen by the Strategic Partnerships Division and then ultimately the Chief of Staff.
- Initial checks of names of any potential suppliers and other payees against the Consolidated UN Sanctions List.
- Six-monthly checks of names of all staff, personnel, donating entities, beneficiaries, vendors and suppliers against the Consolidated UN Sanctions List.
