IAIG story

Who we are

We are the Internal Audit and Investigations Group (IAIG). We provide UNOPS with independent and impartial assurance, advice, and consulting services to protect the integrity of the organization.

Who we serve

As an independent unit within UNOPS, we are charged with protecting integrity and building trust of UNOPS employees, donors and beneficiaries to bring about greater impact through UNOPS’s work.

We report directly to the UNOPS Executive Director, supporting her mandate to ensure accountability across all UNOPS operations.

Through our work, we provide assurance:

  • to our stakeholders — that their funding is appropriately and transparently spent.
  • to our beneficiaries — that our projects are delivered to them as contracted-- efficiently and effectively and always, free of corruption.
  • to our staff — that they are protected by the fair and independent application of our policies.

What we believe

We believe in helping people build better lives and countries achieve peace and sustainable development. We earn the trust of those we work with by caring about what they value, and by delivering on our promise to always act in the service of people in need.

We bring the highest international standards to what we do while respecting local contexts all while doing our part to tackling the huge challenges of the 21st century.

We provide practical solutions to assist our partners to save lives, protect people and their rights, and to build a better world.

We aspire to be a leader in transparency and integrity while addressing the immense needs for sustainable development.

What drives us is a passion to fight inequalities and to provide opportunities to those most vulnerable. This means we often work in the most challenging environments, building foundations for communities to function and people to live with dignity and respect.

We are passionate about quality: in our people and in what we do.

Our mission

Our mission is to help people build better lives and countries achieve peace and sustainable development.
