How can you make a difference?

The Government of Mozambique through the National Directorate of Water Supply and Sanitation (DNAAS)/Ministry of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources (MOPHRH) and its sector partners is developing the National Rural Water Supply & Sanitation Programme (PRONASAR) for period 2018-2030 aiming at achieving country SDG targets for rural WASH.

UNICEF has been actively engaged in development of (1st phase and new) PRONASAR and supports the implementation of PRONASAR both through Common Fund funding modality and bilateral decentralised funding.

As part of development of PRONASAR, four PRONASAR partners namely SDC, DFID, UNICEF and Austria engaged, upon agreed TOR and through 1st quarter 2018, a consultant to assist in developing funding options and future coordination mechanisms for PRONASAR that could appeal/encourage more partners funding PRONASAR.

One of the outcomes from the consultancy is for establishing a “Joint Fund” for PRONASAR, comprised by (i) a Common Fund with funds being channel through Government Single Treasure Account (CUT) and managed directly by the Government; and (ii) funding through a Fund Manager (FM); apart from other project/programme provincial/district direct funding allocations. In all these funding options, the coordination & guidance role from DNAAS is fundamental for ensuring proper accounting of PRONASAR resources.

For the finalization of PRONASAR document, DNAAS and the 4 PRONASAR partners agreed to engage a multidisciplinary team of consultant to support:

  1. Integration, into PRONASAR document, of the funding modalities and future coordination mechanisms agreed ensuring quality and consistency throughout the PRONASAR document;
  2. Development of key documents for operationalization of PRONASAR Joint Fund, namely:
    1. Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the PRONASAR Joint Fund.
    2. Terms of Reference (TOR) for the PRONASAR Fund Manager including setting up criteria for selection /procurement of the FM.
    3. Operating Manual for management and implementation of PRONASAR, including:
      • TOR for Technical and Management teams of PRONASAR
      • TOR for Technical  Assistance to PRONASAR
      • TOR for the Independent Monitoring Agent
      • Setting up criteria for resource allocation to provinces (and districts); for prioritization among the PRONASAR components (Capacity building, sanitation); and developing integrated PRONASAR planning process.

To fulfill the above, it’s anticipated that the multidisciplinary team of consultants should consist of 3 experts:

  • 1 team Leader/Coordinator
  • 1 Rural WASH Specialist
  • 1 Legal/Public Financial Management expert (and MoU development) with strong knowledge & understanding of rural WASH.

An umbrella TOR for this multidisciplinary team was developed highlighting the specific Roles & responsibilities for each team member as well as work relationship among them. These Umbrella TOR are attached and are part of this consultancy.

The main purpose of the current TOR is for engaging a Rural WASH Specialist/consultant that will be responsible for developing the Operating Manual and related documents for management and implementation of PRONASAR.
