Support to Peacebuilding and Normalization (SPAN)
The Government of the Republic of the Philippines (GPH), through the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process (OPAPP), partnered with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to implement a project entitled "Support to Peacebuilding and Normalization" or Project SPAN. The Project aims to contribute towards sustaining the gains of the Government's peace process, and in ensuring peace and security in conflict-affected areas by (a) accelerating the implementation of the security and socio-economic aspects of the Normalization Annex of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) that was agreed upon by the Government of the Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF); and (b) strengthening the enabling environment for peace, recovery and development.
The Project was supposed to be implemented over a period of one year but a change in OPAPP’s administration delayed the implementation of activities and the Project was extended. Subsequently, the Covid19 Pandemic caused further delay and the project implementation was further extended to 31 December 2021. It was agreed that while closure is in December 2021, the Project will still be allowed to complete the remaining deliverables and the closure activities such as Terminal Evaluation and Final Report writing including the Financial Report.
The financial reporting for Project SPAN was a role that was assigned to the Programme Assistant of the Peace Team when the Project’s Financial Officer resigned. Unfortunately, the Programme Assistant has also decided to pursue her career in another agency and will be leaving the project by April.
Thus, the project will require the services of a Project Finance Associate to complete financial reporting during the project closure stage, particularly in validating the financial transactions of the project and in coordinating with the Finance Unit of OPAPP.
The Project SPAN Finance Associate will work under the direct supervision of the SPAN Officer-in-Charge or OIC.
The SPAN OIC will monitor and track the Project Finance Associate’s performance and delivery of expected outputs in accordance with the indicated schedules.
Release of payments will only be triggered after issuance of certificates of acceptance for the outputs and deliverables of the Project Admin and Finance Associate.

87 working days spread out from April to September 2020.
The duty station of the consultant is in Manila, Philippines. However, as this is an output-based engagement, the IC will not be required to report for work daily. The engagement will include travels within Mindanao and if need be and will be shouldered under the SPAN Project.
