UNOPS is currently providing Dispatch and Shuttle Services and Heavy duty vehicle maintenance and repair services to the United Nations Mission in South Sudan. In the last 3 years, the project has only provided shuttle services, but has as of April 2020 undergone review of the scope to include provision of heavy duty vehicle maintenance and repair services. The Project has upto 45 personnel that includes over 30 locally recruited, 13 locally recruited junior level vehicle mechanics who also take care of repairs and maintenance of the UNMISS vehicles and about two locally recruited supervisors who manage the scheduling and rotation of the drivers and mechanics. Personnel fluctuations are also experienced during times of absences. UNOPS has a rooster of standby drivers and mechanics for this purpose.
The overall impact of this project is an indirect contribution to UNMISS’ improved productivity and mission performance by providing its personnel with shuttle services.
