Description

The service provider will provide administrative services mainly consisting of: i) deployment of long-term advisors and short term experts, and ii) financial and procurement management.
DFID funds will be held in a flexible facility to be drawn upon to finance specific activities under the TAUT programme. This Facility is designed to ensure responsiveness, efficiency and quality through a two-track system consisting of:
1) Rapid contracting and mobilisation of pre-identified individuals to deliver specific technical assignments developed by DFID and or GoE; and
2) the sourcing, recruitment, mobilisation, and active management of long and short term experts.
The TAUT Flexible Facility allows the programme to provide services specifically tailored to the demands of GoE counterparts, particularly the ERCA Tax Transformation Office (TTO), the PMO Delivery Unit (PMDU) and the MoFEC Tax Policy Directorate (TPD). These clients have versatile needs and the traction of different activities may change over time. A flexible pool of technical expertise can be employed exactly where and when it is needed, responding quickly to reform opportunities, gain further traction and respond to changing needs and priorities. The TAUT Flexible Facility workflow consists of the following:
- Contact, negotiate terms of contract including fee rates, finalise contract and mobilise prequalified individuals (see above 1);
- Discuss and agree the ToR developed by DFID and/or GoE, develop ToRs when required, provide high quality candidates at cost and select the best expertise (see above 2)
- Mobilisation and contracting of experts, providing all the necessary information and organising travel and logistics to get the experts to the post;
- DFID selects best option and approves cost with the Service Provider (SP)
Programme success is measured through a set of KPIs relating to a combination of process indicators and service quality/output indicators.
