|Location :||Bissau, GUINEA-BISSAU|

|Duration of Initial Contract :||22 working days|
|Expected Duration of Assignment :||22 working days|
The project “boosting the media sector for greater peace and stability in Guinea-Bissau” financed by the Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) is implemented by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the United Nations Integrated Peace-building Office in Guinea Bissau (UNIOGBIS) from January 2018 until March 2020.
The project tries to strengthen the independence of the media by using a multidimensional approach to address the issues preventing media from playing its positive role in democracy and for sustaining peace. Those are: poor working conditions for journalists; weak economic sustainability of the media sector; unclear or inadequate legal framework, insufficient professional capacity among journalists; dependency from international partners and lack of cooperation among media outlets to, among others, reduce costs. By tackling the problems in an integrated way, the project stimulates self-initiative, responsibility and accountability and at the same time tries to foster a sense of pride and self-esteem among journalists which will encourage them to follow their ethics code. The project tries to empower media actors who should take the lead in its implementation, making the pace of the projects progress against the backdrop of political tension.

Guidelines for application:
Lump sum contracts: The financial proposal shall specify a total lump sum amount, and payment terms around specific and measurable (qualitative and quantitative) deliverables (i.e. whether payments fall in installments or upon completion of the entire contract). Payments are based upon output, i.e. upon delivery of the services specified in the ToR. In order to assist the requesting unit in the comparison of financial proposals, the financial proposal will include a breakdown of this lump sum amount (including travel, per diems, and number of anticipated working days).
Travel: All envisaged travel costs must be included in the financial proposal, except the inside travel to the city of Bafata for which the transportation will be covered by the UNIOGBIS (excluding possible accommodation/catering fees). This includes all travel to join duty station/repatriation travel. In general, UNDP should not accept travel costs exceeding those of an economy class ticket. Should the Individual Consultant wish to travel on a higher class he/she should do so using their own resources.
In the case of unforeseeable travel, payment of travel costs including tickets, lodging and terminal expenses should be agreed upon, between the respective business unit and Individual Consultant, prior to travel and will be reimbursed.
