Duties and Responsibilities In 2011, UNODC launched the Global Firearms Programme (GFP) to assist Member States in preventing and countering transnational illicit trafficking in firearms through the ratification and implementation of the Protocol against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms, Their Parts and Components and Ammunition (Firearms Protocol), supplementing the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC). The Programme operates around different complementary clusters, which include legislative and policy development on firearms; regulatory and preventive measures; criminal justice response to firearms trafficking; international cooperation and information exchange on firearms; and monitoring illicit firearms flows. With the financial support from the European Union, GFP’s project “Countering transnational illicit arms trafficking through the implementation of the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime and its Firearms Protocol” has as its overall objective to prevent and counter illicit manufacturing of and trafficking in firearms, and their links to transnational organised crime and terrorism, through the ratification and implementation of the Firearms Protocol. One of the pillars of the project is to support effective cooperation and sharing of information and good practices among communities of firearms and organized crime/terrorism practitioners, including by developing and maintaining a dedicated website to share relevant information, contact details, and best practices. A section of the website would be restricted to members of the community and include relevant materials, contact details, a communication blog, as well as access to one or more databases of pictures. The same access key should also enable practitioners to connect to the UNODC Directory of Competent National Authorities (CNA-Directory) under all crime conventions administered by UNODC. In light of the this, UNODC created a SharePoint website for its Community of Practitioners, within the Microsoft 365 licence of the United Nations, and seeks to customize and design this website in accordance with the requirements outlined in Annex 1. This specialized website is to be integrated in the Firearms section of the UNODC webpage and to this end, also the webpage on firearms needs to be revised, updated and further expanded so as to cover all the work and projects of the GFP.
