Improving Efficiency in PSEA Assessments and Due Diligence

June 2024

The humanitarian and development sector is always looking for ways to operate more efficiently and effectively. One significant area for improvement is the vetting of implementing partners, particularly in relation to Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA). Currently, UN agencies have agreed to accept the findings of PSEA assessments completed by other UN agencies (UN Partner Portal), and thereby avoid duplication of PSEA Assessments by multiple UN agencies on shared partners.

HQAI introduces a promising new approach that uses existing HQAI CHS audits to inform PSEA assessments for UNICEF and potentially other UN agencies. This collaboration has the potential to significantly reduce administrative burdens for both humanitarian organisations and donors while maintaining rigorous assessment standards.

This 1 pager delves into the details of this approach, including a successful pilot project and the potential benefits of "passporting" HQAI CHS audits. These benefits include quicker vetting of implementing partners, cost savings, and reduced risk through trusted HQAI CHS audits.

Read on to discover more about this solution for streamlining PSEA assessments and due diligence processes, ultimately allowing humanitarian and development organisations to concentrate on delivering critical services.
