GFPHST’s PSM roster of experts is integrated as a sub-category under the Health Roster within the GPN/ExpRes Roster. The Global Policy Network (GPN/ExpRes) deployment mechanism provides pre-selected and technically vetted consultants across 62 profiles and 166 sub-profiles to support the work of UNDP Country Offices/units.

Depending on the support needs of the requesting CO, the contracting modality of expertise sourced through the GPN ExpRes Roster can either be an Individual Contract (IC) / Reimbursable Loan Agreement (RLA) or a short-term International Services Agreement Holder (IPSA).
