Position: Consultant (iLO)__Deadline:21Jul

Over the past two decades, Cambodia has realized exceptional rates of economic growth accompanied by persistent declines in the poverty headcount and rapid improvements in human development. GDP per capita has doubled from US$ 785 in 2010 to US$ 1,625 in 2022. In the same timeframe, Cambodia developed its Social Security system, first established by the Royal Government (RGC) in 2007 under the provision of the 2002 Law on Social Security. The National Social Security Fund manages an Employment Injury Scheme since 2007, followed by the establishment of the mandatory Social Health Insurance (SHI) in January 2016. These are followed by the Private Sector Pension scheme which was formally launched in October 2022.
Currently, the NSSF covers approximately 2 million workers, mainly from the garment manufacturing industry and civil servants. The remaining 7 million workers mostly from informal sectors are not protected by any social security schemes.

Experience has showed that the successful cases of extension of coverage for vulnerable workers (including self-employed and workers in micro and small enterprises) requires collaboration between agencies and innovation in multiple mechanisms. In Cambodia, this makes the case for increasing the capacity and the quality of services delivered by the social protection institutions This trust can only be built through consistent delivery of high quality services, streamlined and simplified processes, together with transparency and an understanding of the social protection system and services.

The NSSF Modernisation Project is a multi-year project launched by NSSF in 2019 with the support of the ILO to facilitate the increase in capacity and improving the quality of services. The vision of the project is provide excellent service quality to clients, and to become an employer of choice in the Royal Government civil service. This is to be achieved through five key themes of reducing administrative cost, improving organisation structure, developing human capital, service delivery partnerships and integrated ICT system. In achieving the vision of the Modernisation Project of NSSF, the capacity of a key social security organisation that provides and delivers social protection to all Cambodians will be
enhanced. This will facilitate the extension of social protection coverage which cannot be achieved without an investment into capacity building of social protection organisations.
The modernisation of the NSSF requires, among other, to develop capacities and tools in data monitoring and management. Currently, the NSSF relies on several information systems to manage its operations and monitor its performance. Registration and contribution collection of members for all branches is done through a specific information system comprising a mobile application, a web front office, and a web back office. Members individual information are imported to another health information system named HSPIS. HSPIS is used to collect and process health facilities claim and to check membership eligibility. For managing data relating to other short-term and long-term benefits several disconnected modules are in place, together with an existing plan for interoperability. Through the NHI assessment carried out by the ILO in 2022, the NSSF reported facing a number of operational challenges in extracting, crossing and consolidating data for the purpose of the schemes management, policy decision and reporting to other institutions (such as to the General Secretariat of the National Social Protection Council of Cambodia).
