“Short-term National and International Consultants to Develop a Compliance Inspection Strategy/Manual”

The Royal Government of Cambodia’s local reform agenda is being implemented through its first three-year Implementation Plan (IP3: 2011-2013), under the coordination of the Secretariat of the National Committee for Sub-National Democratic Development (NCDDS). NCDDS wishes to procure two consultants (national and international) to develop a compliance inspection system focusing on compliance with local government laws and regulations and for inspections to be led by the Ministry of Interior, Provinces and the Capital. This oversight process is expected to partially replace the current system of administrative control and to be systematic, independent, credible, and evidence based. The consultants will develop a fully operational and well documented inspection process that includes a workable set of indicators, their means of verification and a scoring system that can be later linked to an accountability framework and other incentives. The following consultants are required.

A. One international Consultant for 20 working days, having
• At least a Master’s Degree or equivalent in Social Sciences, Law, Finance/Audit, Public Policy or related studies
• At least 5 years’ experience working as an inspector, manager of inspection processes, or in a related and relevant oversight capacity OR at least 3 examples of developing compliance inspection or oversight processes in other countries
• Experience in undertaking local government inspection, especially in cases where reforms are moving from a deconcentrated/centralized system to a delegated one
• Experience in South East Asia or Cambodia is considered useful

B. One national Consultant for 50 working days, having
• At least a Master’s Degree or equivalent in Social Sciences, Law, Finance/Audit, Public Policy or related studies
• Proven experience in writing manuals or guidelines; excellent writing skills in English and Khmer
• Good quantitative reasoning skills and logical thinking
• 2 years’ experience in M&E or compliance inspection or oversight or legal analysis
• Knowledge or clear ability to learn the legal framework for local government in Cambodia
