UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.
Following a period of external evaluation of its 2012-2016 programme portfolio, the UNDP Mozambique Country Office is now in process of finalizing the formulation of a significant part of the 2017-2020 CPD projects. Economic Governance and Governance of the Extractive Industries are two of the projects in this situation. The CO previous experience with the economic governance areas was through the regional project PALOP/TL. Some of the lessons indicated that more support was needed for some of these areas and the CO is ready to provide it through a CO independent project. For the Extractive project, the previous Project Manager/Technical Advisor left Mozambique in October 2017 and since then the position is vacant. Given that the direct contact between UNDP and the IPs of both projects ceased for several months, it is important that the formulation process is carried out working in close collaboration and coordination with the national authorities at central and decentralized level. This will allow for a better tuned Project which will hopefully can capture major developments which might have occurred in the sector and needing to be reflected for the next programming.
Against this background the CO seeks to urgently recruit a national consultant, who is familiarized with the themes and with the public institutions functioning in Mozambique. The consultant’s main responsibility will be the formulation of Project Document of the Economic Governance project on the one hand, and on the other of the project on Governance of the Extractive Industries. As the Project Document on the Extractives was on an advanced stage of preparation, the consultant will be required to finalize the formulation. Following the formulation of both Project Documents, the consultant will be required to actively engage in resource mobilization for both projects, to allow for its initiation.
In view of the need to ensure resource mobilization to both projects as well as establish working relationship with the IPs on both projects, the consultancy will be for 6 months, starting on 5 February 2018.
Duties and Responsibilities
The overall purpose of the consultancy is the formulation of two Project Documents on the following areas: a) Economic Governance and b) Governance of the Extractive Industries The consultancy will include desk review of relevant documentation (to be provided by UNDP and national institutions), consultations and working meeting with the national institutions (at central and decentralized levels), organization of validation workshops, followed by resource mobilization and design of concrete roadmap (agreed by partners) on next steps to start implementation, non- later than the second half of 2018.
The desk review, should include a strong understanding of UNDP Strategic Plan (specifically regarding the thematic focus and targeting) and Integrated Result and Resource framework, a deep understanding of UNDP new Project Quality Assurance criteria, as the project will be assessed using these criteria, and a deep understanding of the new monitoring policy and requirements.
