DFID is seeking a Programme Management Supplier (PMS) to manage and facilitate the implementation of its Promoting Inclusive Markets in Somalia (PIMS) Programme over the next three years (2014 - 2017). The programme will focus on interventions and enterprises where women have significant engagement. Women are actively engaged in value adding activities of livestock, crop farming and fishing and there is potential to raise their incomes and employment through improving these markets.

For example, women would substantially benefit from the interventions of livestock and crop farming because they supply the majority of labour in these sectors. In order to ensure that interventions in these value chains are benefitting women, the supplier will be expected to set realistic targets for the number of jobs created for women depending on sector analysis report.

In addition, they will map sector employment by role, gender and income groups, laying the groundwork for a comprehensive monitoring framework. In order to support this work, the supplier will be expected to have Gender, Economic and Social Development expert to provide gender lenses into the programme.
