Annual Review

The NGO Relations evaluates the activities of DPI-Associated NGOs every year to determine if they have fulfilled their association responsibilities and to update our records. The Annual Review is a self-reporting exercise which enables NGOs formally associated with DPI to report on their most recent activities and public information programmes and to (re)designate up to six representatives for grounds passes to UNHQ New York. 

2017 Annual Review is now closed

The 2017 Annual Review for DPI-associated NGOs is now open. The deadline to submit your Annual Review is 31 January 2018.

The priority deadline for submission was 15 December 2017We invite our DPI NGO colleagues to submit the 2017 Annual Review for your Organization without delay.  NGOs that successfully submitted their Annual Review by the priority deadline of 15 December 2017 are eligible to retrieve their UNHQ NGO grounds passes starting 1 February 2018.  NGOs that successfully submit the Annual Review by the final deadline of 31 January 2018 can request grounds passes after 1 March 2018.

NO SUBMISSIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER 31 JANUARY 2018.

NO ANNUAL GROUNDS PASSES FOR THE UNITED NATIONS HEADQUARTERS IN NEW YORK FOR THE 2018 CALENDAR YEAR WILL BE ISSUED TO NGOS THAT DO NOT SUBMIT THE ANNUAL REVIEW BY THE FINAL DEADLINE.

Allow us to emphasize how important submitting the Annual Review is. It is the responsibility of all DPI-associated NGOs to submit their yearly report in order to maintain their association.

Another important element of the Annual Review is that only those NGOs that fill the questionnaire and report on their work will be eligible for grounds passes for 2018 for the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

We have sent the credentials to all the heads of all DPI-associated NGOs. If for any reason the head of the organization has not received the credentials, please contact us at undpingo(at)un(dot)org, subject line 2017 ANNUAL REVIEW. Please note that these credentials are different from the ones used for the Civil Society Organizations Network (CSO Net) portal.
