Duration of Contract: 45 working days.

The Local Governance and Service Delivery Program (LGSDP) Fast track initiative is the first step in a long-term community driven development program (CDD) for and by the Republic of South Sudan supported by the World Bank. Pact has been asked to be the coordinating agency for this project, funded under the fast-track initiative by SIDA. Pact, as the coordinating agency, is responsible for formulating the methodology and training modules as well as monitoring program progress and providing support as needed.

Pact Inc. is an international non-governmental organization based in Washington, DC, which currently operates in 29 countries. Globally, Pact targets three strategic areas: health, livelihoods and natural resource management. Pact’s mission is to contribute to the growth of a civil society where citizens acting together can express their interests, exchange information, strive for mutual goals and influence governments worldwide in pursuit of economic, social and political justice. The organization achieves its mission through provision of Grants to selected Civil Society Organizations and the provision of Technical Support. Pact in South Sudan focuses specifically on achieving these goals through peacebuilding, justice and water access projects.

The Local Governance and Service Delivery Program, currently beginning a 9 month fast-track phase prior to the launch of the program as a whole, is a community driven development (CDD) program to improve local governance and service delivery through participatory planning at the local level.

Pact seeks to engage two Community Driven Development Specialists (at least one national) to develop the CDD community engagement and consultation methodology and training modules for the program. The CDD approach targets small-scale goods and service delivery and builds on existing collective action initiatives. Success with this approach is linked closely to the depth and strength of links between implementers and local level political entities. Pact will leverage existing relationships at the Boma level to build a strong and comprehensive CDD approach.

Duties and Responsibilities:
Pact seeks two CDD Specialists to develop and write the methodology and training materials for the CDD program.

Train Pact staff on CDD methodology and use of training materials

Provide feedback regarding the use of the methodology

At the beginning of the consultancy the consultants and the LGSD Program Manager will agree on a work plan and timeline, including a breakdown of the training modules (as suggested by the consultants) and the division of responsibility between the two consultants. This work plan will be used as the basis for the evaluation of the deliverables discussed below.
