Under the Bilateral Agreements between the Government of Mali and the United States Government, the Sub-National Governance Program (SNGP) is a five-year program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This national program will cover all regions of Mali and the District of Bamako. The SNGP project is implemented by Tetra Tech, ARD, in partnership with Management Systems International (MSI), Banyan Global, Budget Monitoring Group (GSB) and Women in Law and Development in Africa (WILDAF).
The Program aims to promote targeted changes in public financial management systems at the national and regional levels.
Expected result: improvement of financial decentralization through an adequate transfer of resources from the central level to local and regional authorities; increasing the quantity and quality of basic social services (Health and Education).
The Program focuses on three major components and a cross-cutting component – Gender Mainstreaming:
The program started in February 2016.
**Please note: Malian citizens are strongly preferred..
The website of the General Controller of Public Services is planned within the framework of the implementation of the activities of component 3, during the second year of the program. This website will allow the CGSP to communicate on its achievements, to explain the added value of audit and control in good governance. It will ensure the interface between the CGSP and its partners, in particular for the implementation of the national internal control strategy and facilitate advocacy for a better integration of audit in public financial management to increase accountability, which is an expected result of SNGP related to its theory of change.
Thus, an external consultant will be recruited to carry out the website under the supervision of the computer engineer of the SNGP program and the CGSP. As a prelude to the creation of the site, a broadband connection will be installed for a period of one year and the CGSP will have to ensure the durability of this installation by entering it henceforth in its operating budget. The program pays for the first year of subscription.
Objectives of the website:
Website creation must be completed within one month. The consultant’s total level of effort is projected to be 26 days.
The consultant will construct the website using WordPress, a popular content management system (CMS) platform. Using WordPress will enable website managers to update content (adding files for download, adding pictures, editing text, etc.) with minimal assistance from the consultant after the website is constructed. The project will purchase a theme, which the consultant will apply to the website to ensure a coherent and intuitive design. At minimum, the website will consist of the following pages, as described below:
Additional pages or features may be added. Content for each page will be collected by project staff.
Only candidates who have been selected for an interview will be contacted. No phone calls, please.
