The Department of Safeguards (SG) is the organizational hub for the implementation of IAEA safeguards. The IAEA implements nuclear verification activities for some 180 States in accordance with their safeguards agreements. The safeguards activities are undertaken within a dynamic and technically challenging environment including advanced nuclear fuel cycle facilities and complemented by the political diversity of the countries.
The Department of Safeguards consists of six Divisions: three Operations Divisions: A, B and C, for the implementation of verification activities around the world; three Technical Divisions: Division of Concepts and Planning, Division of Information Management, and Division of Technical and Scientific Services; as well as three Offices: the Office for Verification in Iran, the Office of Safeguards Analytical Services and the Office of Information and Communication Services.
The main objective of the Department is to maintain and further develop an effective and efficient verification system in order to draw independent, impartial and timely safeguards conclusions, thus providing credible assurances to the international community that States are in compliance with their safeguards obligations. The departmental operating environment is interactive, participative and dynamic with continuous inputs received from the Board of Governors, the General Conference, policy- and decision-makers, as well as counterparts in Member States and in the international development community.
The Project Section provides ICT services to Safeguards Divisions and Member States. The Section serves multiple roles. It provides business analysis and information architecture services including integration of solutions developed in the IAEA and third-party solutions into the IT environment. It undertakes quality assurance and testing for all delivered products and provides project management services to the Division including contract management.
Under the general supervision of the Section Head, the Team Leader and, if appropriate, a project leader, carry out business analysis and translate the department’s business requirements into system deployments and/or business process changes. Incumbents act as a change agent to help facilitate effective deployments/modifications to current practices.
The Business Analyst is: (1) a specialist, performing business analysis; (2) a point of liaison with users in the Department of Safeguards and project team; (3) an adviser to team leader and other senior managers in the Division on business process, risk, change and system implementation issues.
