Request for Expression of Interest

For 5 National Consultants: 1. Senior National Operation Consultant; 2. Social Accountability Consultant; 3. Information and Communication Consultant; 4. Information Technology Consultant; 5. Financial Management Consultant


The National Committee for Sub-National Democratic Development (NCDD) is mandated as the overall program authority and through its Secretariat (NCDDS) is responsible for policy formulation and program coordination to undertake Organic Law and D&D reform through National Program for Sub-National Democratic Development (NP-SNDD).

Therefore, social accountability is also set as an integral component of NP-SNDD which has been carried through Social Accountability Strategic Plan and its Implementation for Social Accountability Framework (ISAF). ISAF is currently in the second phase, which cover the period 2019-2023. ISAF has been implementing through the cooperation between the NCDDS, development partners and civil society organizations in order to enhance the constructive engagement between citizens and government as an integral element of governance arrangements – through which public decision-making and action takes place. It includes all those activities in which citizens and their representatives can advocate for their interests (voice) and thereby check the performance of officials and service providers (accountability) as they make, implement and enforce public decisions (collective choices) relating to rights, regulations, investment/resources and service delivery.
