UNDP is implementing the 2016-2020 Country Proramme with the Institutional Effectiveness (IE) Programme as one of the 3 flagship programmes being implemented. The IE programme is aligned to the National Development Plan II, and the key outcome is “By end 2020, targeted public institutions and Public-Private Partnerships are fully functional at all levels, inclusive, resourced, performance-oriented, innovative and evidence-seeking supported by a strategic evaluation function; and with Uganda’s population enforcing a culture of mutual accountability, transparency and integrity” . One of the key Sectors that the IE programme is supporting is the PSM sector where MDA capacities are being built to implement public sector policies, develop legal and regulatory frameworks and operationalise management of the sector. This is supported under Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) as the implementing partner.
Since 2000, the entire Public-sector in Uganda has evolved into 16 sectors, made up of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) with closely-related mandates. Each sector is “managed” by a Sector Working Group, the role of which is to harmonize, coordinate, monitor, evaluate and report on vision and goals, policy frameworks, plans, and performance of all MDA members. Out of this harmonization processes, the good practice of sectoral strategic investment planning and review has evolved as the vehicle for coordinated and integrated planning, budgeting, and joint implementation reviews. This is now a prerequisite for budgeting and performance management.
In order to achieve the above, the OPM developed the first Public Sector Management (PSM) Strategic Plan that has been approved by the National Planning Authority. To operationalise this Strategic plan, the sector now needs a structured and focused Communication and Engagement strategy for improved information flow within the sector across the 3 tiers that include:
It is against this background that UNDP is seeking to hire a consultant on behalf of Office of the Prime Minister to develop a PSM communication and engagement strategy.
The objective of the assignment is to develop a comprehensive and coherent Public-Sector Management Communication and Engagement Strategy aimed at providing a strategic framework for managing and coordinating information flow in the sector and strengthening the functionality of PSM and other Sectors and stakeholders.
