Procurement Specialist (Referendum)
|Location :||Abyei, SUDAN|
|Application Deadline :||05-May-10 (Midnight New York, USA)|
|Additional Category :||Management|
|Type of Contract :||FTA International|
|Post Level :||P-3|
|Languages Required :||English|
|Duration of Initial Contract :||One Year|
The Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) that brought to an end two decades of war in Sudan stipulated that there shall be a referendum on the administrative status of Abyei Area to be held in January 2011, simultaneously with a referendum on self-determination for Southern Sudan.
The Abyei Area residents will exercise the right to determine their future administrative status through the referendum in accordance with the provisions of the CPA, the Interim National Constitution of the Republic of the Sudan, and the Abyei Area Referendum Law.
The Abyei Referendum Commission (AARC), stationed in Abyei town, is expected to be established soon. The AARC shall organize the referendum in cooperation with the Abyei Area Administration, the Government of National Unity and the Government of Southern Sudan.
The Civil Administration of Abyei Area has requested technical, logistical and operational assistance from UNDP in anticipation of the Commission to be established, and to support the administration.
UNDP is establishing a referendum support project to assist the Abyei Referendum Commission, once it is established, in planning and organizing the referendum and to support key stakeholders in the referendum process such as civil society, media and the police. In addition, UNDP will support the Abyei Civil Administration in its role in the process.
Noting that multiple electoral and referenda events will take place in Sudan in 2010 and 2011; and that Sudan is scheduled to hold six levels of elections in 2010 and the first phase of preparations for the referendum will coincide with ongoing preparations for the elections scheduled for April 2010, it is anticipated that these multiple events add to the complex task that will be faced in organizing the Abyei Area referendum.
The Procurement Specialist works under the direct supervision of the Project Manager, and works closely with the Referendum Advisor, and UNDP HQs and Country Office staff and Government officials to successfully deliver procurement services in order to obtain the best value for money. He/she analyzes and interprets the financial rules and regulations and provides solutions to a wide spectrum of complex issues related to procurement.
