The consultancy is planned within the Economic Governance for Growth (EGG) project (2018-2021), primarily funded by the Government of the Kingdom of Norway and co-funded and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). As part of the UNDP BiH’s Rural and Regional Development Sector’s portfolio, the EGG Project works to improve economic development opportunities in BiH and generate employment in promising industrial sectors. Key project deliverables include creating a governance framework conducive to economic development, improving the current public finance management system, support to start-up generation in advanced technological area and strengthening the capacities of the education system to respond to modern economy labour force needs. Pursuing an integrated approach to generating economic growth opportunities in target localities, the EGG project envisages the following activities:
The purpose of the consultancy is to contribute to improved programmatic delivery as well as financial management by cantonal governments through facilitating the implementation of recommendations arising from a recently administered comprehensive spending review. The spending review has thus far been completed in two cantons, Sarajevo and Posavina, with working structures formed to spearhead the implementation of resulting recommendations. In order to support the work of these two bodies, the Project is seeking to recruit a senior local consultant to help guide and inform the process while also monitoring and reporting on the implementation of key recommendations.
Duties and Responsibilities
The consultancy will follow on the heels of comprehensive spending review processes carried out in Sarajevo and Posavina Cantons by a team of senior consultants. Aimed to support the process, cantonal governments have established working groups composed by representatives of selected ministries/sectors. The findings of the review process, focusing largely on financial and asset management practices, have been translated into a practical action plan that working groups and respective ministries are expected to adhere to over the coming 12 months. The Consultant will be provided with the original review report and action plan.
Accordingly, the Consultant is expected to perform the following tasks:
Task 1 – Assist the Working Group in updating the spending review document
The time foreseen for this task is 8 days.
Task 2 – Conduct quarterly monitoring progress reviews
Task 3 – Deliver final report
