Recognizing the growing importance of Multi-Donor Trust Funds (MDTFs) and other pooled funding mechanisms, the UN Development Group agreed on the establishment of a UNDG Multi-Donor Trust Fund Fiduciary Management Oversight Framework. In accordance with this Framework, the Fiduciary Management Oversight Group (FMOG) serves as the first point of contact in HQs for fiduciary matters on MDTFs. It provides oversight to individual MDTFs on financial management, legal, and assurance issues of an inter-agency nature and discusses any required departures from the standard Memorandum of Understanding, Letters of Agreements and Steering Committee Terms of Reference.

The FMOG is supported by the standing Joint Funding Task Team (JFTT) which develops policies on UNDG joint funding mechanisms and instruments; provides overall guidance and communication on policies in the UNDG joint funding area, funding mechanisms and instruments to UN Country Teams; and provides technical advice and support to country offices and agencies’ HQs in the establishment of UNDG joint funding mechanisms.
