The Global Centre for Public Service Excellence (GCPSE) is one of six Global Policy Centres of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) which contribute to UNDP’s global development policy advisory functions, shape global thought leadership by providing evidence-based support and undertake development analytics for the global positioning of the organization and articulation of UNDP's discourse in global development processes. The Global Policy Centres provide research support and leverage partnerships to support better use of the organization’s funding for emerging priorities and innovation. GCPSE acts as a knowledge and convening hub on public service excellence, promoting cutting edge practices in public management and administrative reforms.
Given the importance of public administration in delivering the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the GCPSE intends to collaborate with the academic community in developing evidence on the relevant policy aspects. As partners of the ICPP, the GCPSE has selected a number of panels (indicated in panel descriptions) that it will consider travel grant applications for.
