PFM Capacity Building Namibia
« on: September 30, 2013, 09:29:34 GMT »
Dear Colleagues,

We are expecting to become shortlisted for a LTTA Institutional Capacity Development Programme (ICDP) in support to the MoF and the Office of the Auditor General in Namibia. Therefore we are looking for short-term experts to support us with building capacity in areas such as Customs, Excise, PFM, Inland Revenue, Tender board and Auditing.

Project Description

Project Duration
3 years

Indicative Start Date
January 2014

Overall Objective
The overall objective of the Institutional Capacity Development Programme is to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of Public Finance Management in order to support national development goals.

Specific Objective
The purpose of the intervention is to ensure that the effectiveness of budget and public expenditure analysis is augmented; revenue management functions and control management functions within the Ministry of Finance and the Office of the Auditor General are strengthened; and that system management is enhanced at central and regional levels through strengthening capacities in order to ensure that public expenditure delivers results and value for money.

Requested Services
During the first phase of the programme in 2013, organisational and institutional arrangements in selected directorates of the Ministry of Finance (Customs and Excise, Inland Revenue, Budget Management, Tender Board) and of the Office of the Auditor General have been reviewed and training needs assessments conducted. Capacity development plans have been prepared for each of the Directorates and approved by the Ministry of Finance (MoF).

Some of the existing training policies and strategies within MoF have to be further up-dated and career development plans established. Certain key functions within the Ministry of Finance and the Office of the Auditor General have to be strengthened as they are not adequately functional. Avenues for capacity building have been identified in areas such as Customs, Excise, PFM, Inland Revenue, Tender board and Auditing. Highly specialized short term expertise will be recruited during the three years of the project to ensure that the identified capacity building needs are addressed in a sustainable manner, notably through on the job training and development of training manuals. A long term PFM expert will coordinate the various technical inputs and the timely implementation of the support programme.

These interventions under the Public Finance Management Institutional Capacity Development Programme (PFM-ICDP), are designed to technically support the implementation of identified capacity building activities with a strong focus on sustainable institutional capacity and systemsí development. This service contract will avail long-term and short-term technical expertise to support the implementation of the defined capacity development plans and actions.

If you are interested in being considered for any of the LT and/or ST positions, please contact sander.steur@ecfdc.org
