National Consultant for LG Performance EvaluationLocation :Bihac, Bosanska Krupa, Cazin, Gradiška, Kostajnica, Kozarska Dubica, Prijedor, Sanski Most and Velika Kladuša, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINAApplication Deadline : 14-Feb-19 (Midnight New York, USA)Time left : 13d 15h 3mType of Contract : Individual ContractPost Level : National ConsultantLanguages Required :English Duration of Initial Contract : 25 February - 10 April 2019Expected Duration of Assignment : Maximum 12 expert daysREFER A FRIEND APPLY NOWBackgroundFinanced by the Government of Switzerland and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Municipal Environmental and Economic Governance (MEG) Project is a 12-year intervention in the domain of local governance in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Project’s overall goal is defined as follows: Local governments (LGs), assigned with appropriate competences and finances, have improved their democratic governance, apply sound public policy and performance management systems, and provide public services in an inclusive, effective and efficient manner, particularly those related to economic and environmental sectors.The expected concrete improvements the Project will contribute to are clustered in three outcomes, as follows:Outcome 1: Supported local governments apply effective development management systems characterized by stronger oversight of the legislative and greater accountability towards the citizens.Outcome 2: Citizens and businesses in target localities benefit from good quality services provided by LGs in the economic and environmental sectors.Outcome 3: Improved regulatory framework at higher and local government levels.The Project’s territorial focus is on the North-West part of the country (including Una-Sana Canton and Prijedor region) and the North-East region (the wider Doboj-Tuzla area), covering 18 partner LGs: Bihac, Bosanska Krupa, Cazin, Doboj, Gracanica, Gradacac, Gradiška, Kalesija, Kostajnica, Kozarska Dubica, Prijedor, Prnjavor, Sanski Most, Tešanj, Teslic, Tuzla, Velika Kladuša and Žepce.The Project is implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Ministry of Development, Entrepreneurship and Crafts of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH), the FBiH Ministry of Agriculture, Water Management and Forestry, the Ministry for Administration and Local Self-Government of Republika Srpska (RS), the RS Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management and both entity Associations of Municipalities and Cities (AMCs).The MEG Project is supporting its partner local governments (municipal councils and administrations) to establish sound public policy and management systems through improved structures, regulatory frameworks, capacities and attitudes by municipal employees and elected officials. This entails reform-type of efforts by municipal leaderships and employees, towards more effective and citizen-centred municipal governance and service delivery.Sound performance management systems implying excelling technical and political performance will be awarded through financial resources (in accordance with the Methodology) for realization of local priorities in the environmental and economic sectors. Such performance-based financial assistance will serve as an incentive for partner local governments and will ultimately reward both the political leaderships for successfully rooting challenging and sensitive reforms, as well as the administrative performance of municipal staff.This approach should enable effective realization of local development strategies, transformation of local governments into development-conducive, cost-efficient, effective, and people-centred governance service providers. This concept intends to be the springboard of effective, inclusive, and accountable public policy management system to be introduced within the Project’s partner local governments.The purpose of the Progress Performance Evaluation is to provide an impartial view of the MEG partner LGs’ progress achieved in period from 31 March 2018 to 31 March 2019, based on the Performance-based Financial Assistance Methodology cycle II (hereafter the Methodology) and 27 performance indicators clearly defined in it. The evaluation will assess the current state of affairs and the corresponding means of verification, when it comes to the 27 performance indicators and compare it with the baseline evaluation results in accordance with the formulas set in the Methodology. The results of the evaluation will provide grounds for the financial assistance to MEG partner LGs that is planned to be implemented in 2019.Specifically, the Progress Performance Evaluation is intended to objectively assess the LGs commitment to reform and sustainable improvement of their performance, through evaluation of the performance progress made over the referenced 12-month period. This will be done by performing an evidence-based assessment of the relevant LGs’ means of verification, and by capturing the achieved improvement of the 27 performance indicator scores in accordance with the Methodology. Based on the evaluation results, each LG will have access to different amount of funds for co-financing of the priority infrastructure projects.For this purpose, one National Consultant for the LG Performance Evaluation (hereafter the Consultant) covering following partner LGs of North-West Cluster: Bihac, Bosanska Krupa, Cazin, Gradiška, Kostajnica, Kozarska Dubica, Prijedor, Sanski Most and Velika Kladuša, will be recruited. In addition, for the overall task, one National Lead Consultant for the LG Performance Evaluation (hereafter the Lead Consultant) covering following partner LGs of North-East Cluster: to Doboj, Kalesija, Gracanica, Gradacac, Prnjavor, Teslic, Tešanj, Tuzla and Žepce, will be recruited.Duties and ResponsibilitiesPerformance-based Financial Assistance Methodology for financial support to local governments within the MEG Project is a mechanism for awarding financial assistance (aimed at co-financing priority projects in the environmental and economic sectors) to partner local governments based on their performance results. Thus, the performance-based granting is designed to condition partner local governments’ access to financial support with sound, tangible and measurable performance results, as well as to stimulate partners to strive towards more effective policy management and service delivery. The innovative feature behind this mechanism is that it creates linkages between a partner local government performance and grant funds that a local government will eventually receive, conditioned on their progress performance.In all cases, financial support to partner LGs under the performance-based grant methodology will be exclusively used for realisation of capital investment priorities originating from official local development strategies, in the economic and environmental sectors.Assessment methodology and performance indicatorsThe assessment methodology for performance-based financial assistance is based on several main parameters that allow measuring progress achieved by LGs during the 12-month period.The assessment methodology is engineered around the following main parameters:Governance areas in focus;Performance indicators;Measurement scale;Score;Indicator’s weight, andSource of data.Each of these is further explained and presented in detail within the Performance-management assessment matrix which is integral part of the PbFA Methodology, available by copying the following link to your web browser: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1yS8BktIsuirxqbKeoPddq_1DkaLZy_yP?usp=sharingThe Methodology focuses on 4 specific governance areas: 1) development management and municipal employees’ performance; 2) accountability and participatory decision-making; 3) water governance and 4) economic governance.Progress in each of the governance areas will be tracked based on performance indicators. Specifically, there are between six and eight indicators within each focus area, comprising a set of 27 indicators in total.Subsequently, for each indicator there is a measuring scale ranging from 0 to maximum 3, detailing possible achievements based on which progress will be measured. Depending on the result achieved by the local government against the measuring scale, a relevant score will be assigned, also based on the 0 – 3 scale, where the result of “0” indicates that no/limited progress against the relevant indicator is in place, while “3” is the desired progress and state of play.The PbFA Methodology also envisages defining concrete and tangible sources of data, which will serve as the means of verification when conducting the performance evaluation. To the maximum extent possible, the methodology seeks to ensure the use of formal and publicly available documentation, statistics and avoiding parallel data collection systems.Methodology of workThe proposed methodology of work consists from the following: Preliminary desk review;Meetings with MEG Project team, followed by field visits to nine (9) LGs of the North-West Cluster (as referenced above);Further on-line contact with LGs and team management, andProviding relevant inputs to the Lead Consultant for the Final Report write-up for 18 partner LGs.The Final Report should consist of the quantitative part containing the evidence-based evaluation results summary, and individual results for each of the 18 LGs - clearly referencing individual scores for each of the 27 performance indicators and providing links to relevant means of verification.The National LG Performance Evaluation Consultant will be directly supervised by the Lead Consultant. MEG Project Team will provide full logistical support during the consultancy.More specifically, the Consultant will have the following tasks: Task 1 – Desk reviewFollowing the initial meetings with the MEG Project Team, the Consultant will get him/herself familiar with the MEG Performance-based Financial Assistance (PbFA) Methodology - Cycle II, and the results of the baseline evaluation performed in 18 MEG partner LGs in March 2018.

The work-plan and the evaluation report will include evaluation of all 18 partner LGs.The Consultant remains directly responsible for the evaluation results of the nine LGs of the North-West Cluster.It is envisaged that this task will be delivered by March 1, 2019 and the level of effort will not exceed 3 expert days. Task 2 – Field Visits to nine LGsUpon the approval of the work plan and the structure of the LG Progress Evaluation Report by the MEG Project Team, the Consultant is expected to carry out the LG Progress Evaluation in the 9 LGs of the North-West Cluster based on the approved work-plan. The MEG Project Team will provide support to the Consultant in organization of the meetings and collection of the relevant means of verification. Depending on the availability, the Consultant may be accompanied by the Project Team in the field visits to nine LGs of the North-West Cluster. The field visits will enable collection of the required set of the relevant means of verification and hence facilitate timely and successful completion of the LG Progress Evaluation Report. The means of verification that, from rational reasons, cannot be presented and submitted by LGs during the evaluation field may be sent (and accepted) via email until the date agreed with the Consultant. However, the date should not be set later than the end of March 2019.It is envisaged that this task will be delivered by March 30, 2019 and the level of effort will not exceed 6 expert days. Task 3 – LG Progress Evaluation Report The Progress Evaluation Report prepared by both the Lead Consultant and the Consultant, will be submitted to the Project Team for initial review.

National Lead Consultant for LG Performance EvaluationLocation :Doboj, Kalesija, Gracanica, Gradacac, Prnjavor, Teslic, Tešanj, Tuzla and Žepce, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINAApplication Deadline : 14-Feb-19 (Midnight New York, USA)Time left :13d 14h 59mType of Contract :Individual ContractPost Level :National ConsultantLanguages Required : English Duration of Initial Contract : 25 February – 10 April 2019 (maximum 17 expert days)BackgroundFinanced by the Government of Switzerland and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Municipal Environmental and Economic Governance (MEG) Project is a 12-year intervention in the domain of local governance in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Project’s overall goal is defined as follows: Local governments (LGs), assigned with appropriate competences and finances, have improved their democratic governance, apply sound public policy and performance management systems, and provide public services in an inclusive, effective and efficient manner, particularly those related to economic and environmental sectors.The expected concrete improvements the Project will contribute to are clustered in three outcomes, as follows:Outcome 1: Supported local governments apply effective development management systems characterized by stronger oversight of the legislative and greater accountability towards the citizens.Outcome 2: Citizens and businesses in target localities benefit from good quality services provided by LGs in the economic and environmental sectors.Outcome 3: Improved regulatory framework at higher and local government levels.The Project’s territorial focus is on the North-West part of the country (including Una-Sana Canton and Prijedor region) and the North-East region (the wider Doboj-Tuzla area), covering 18 partner LGs: Bihac, Bosanska Krupa, Cazin, Doboj, Gracanica, Gradacac, Gradiška, Kalesija, Kostajnica, Kozarska Dubica, Prijedor, Prnjavor, Sanski Most, Tešanj, Teslic, Tuzla, Velika Kladuša and Žepce.The Project is implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Relations of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Ministry of Development, Entrepreneurship and Crafts of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH), the FBiH Ministry of Agriculture, Water Management and Forestry, the Ministry for Administration and Local Self-Government of Republika Srpska (RS), the RS Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management and both entity Associations of Municipalities and Cities (AMCs).The MEG Project is supporting its partner local governments (municipal councils and administrations) to establish sound public policy and management systems through improved structures, regulatory frameworks, capacities and attitudes by municipal employees and elected officials. This entails reform-type of efforts by municipal leaderships and employees, towards more effective and citizen-centred municipal governance and service delivery.Sound performance management systems implying excelling technical and political performance will be awarded through financial resources, in accordance with the Project developed Performance-based Financial Assistance (PbFA) Methodology, for realization of local priorities in environmental and economic sectors. Such performance-based financial assistance will serve as an incentive for partner local governments and will ultimately reward both the political leaderships for successfully rooting challenging and sensitive reforms, as well as the administrative performance of municipal staff.This approach should enable effective realization of local development strategies, transformation of local governments into development-conducive, cost-efficient, effective, and people-centred governance service providers. This concept intends to be the springboard of effective, inclusive, and accountable public policy management system to be introduced within the Project’s partner local governments.The purpose of the Progress Performance Evaluation is to provide an impartial view of the MEG partner LGs’ progress achieved in period from 31 March 2018 to 31 March 2019, based on the Performance-based Financial Assistance Methodology cycle II (hereafter the Methodology) and 27 performance indicators clearly defined in it. The evaluation will assess the current state of affairs and the corresponding means of verification, when it comes to the 27 performance indicators and compare it with the baseline evaluation results in accordance with the formulas set in the Methodology. The results of the evaluation will provide grounds for the financial assistance to MEG partner LGs that is planned to be implemented in 2019.Specifically, the Progress Performance Evaluation is intended to objectively assess the LGs commitment to reform and sustainable improvement of their performance, through evaluation of the performance progress made over the referenced 12-month period. This will be done by performing an evidence-based assessment of the relevant LGs’ means of verification, and by capturing the achieved improvement of the 27 performance indicator scores in accordance with the Methodology. Based on the evaluation results, each LG will have access to different amount of funds for co-financing of the priority infrastructure projects.For this purpose, one National Lead Consultant for the LG Performance Evaluation (hereafter the Lead Consultant) covering following partner LGs of North-East Cluster: Doboj, Kalesija, Gracanica, Gradacac, Prnjavor, Teslic, Tešanj, Tuzla and Žepce, will be recruited. In addition, for the overall task, one National Consultant for the LG Performance Evaluation (hereafter the Consultant) covering following partner LGs of North-West Cluster: Bihac, Bosanska Krupa, Cazin, Gradiška, Kostajnica, Kozarska Dubica, Prijedor, Sanski Most and Velika Kladuša, will be recruited.Duties and ResponsibilitiesPerformance-based Financial Assistance Methodology for financial support to local governments within the MEG Project is a mechanism for awarding financial assistance (aimed at co-financing priority projects in the environmental and economic sectors) to partner local governments based on their performance results. Thus, the performance-based granting is designed to condition partner local governments’ access to financial support with sound, tangible and measurable performance results, as well as to stimulate partners to strive towards more effective policy management and service delivery. The innovative feature behind this mechanism is that it creates linkages between a partner local government performance and grant funds that a local government will eventually receive, conditioned on their progress performance.In all cases, financial support to partner LGs under the performance-based grant methodology will be exclusively used for realisation of capital investment priorities originating from official local development strategies, in the economic and environmental sectors.Assessment methodology and performance indicatorsThe assessment methodology for performance-based financial assistance is based on several main parameters that allow measuring progress achieved by LGs during the 12-month period.The assessment methodology is engineered around the following main parameters:Governance areas in focus;Performance indicators;Measurement scale;Score;Indicator’s weight, andSource of data.Each of these is further explained and presented in detail within the Performance-management assessment matrix which is integral part of the PbFA Methodology, available by copying the following link to your web browser:https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1yS8BktIsuirxqbKeoPddq_1DkaLZy_yP?usp=sharing.The Methodology focuses on 4 specific governance areas: 1) development management and municipal employees’ performance; 2) accountability and participatory decision-making; 3) water governance and 4) economic governance.Progress in each of the governance areas will be tracked based on performance indicators. Specifically, there are between six and eight indicators within each focus area, comprising a set of 27 indicators in total.Subsequently, for each indicator there is a measuring scale ranging from 0 to maximum 3, detailing possible achievements based on which progress will be measured. Depending on the result achieved by the local government against the measuring scale, a relevant score will be assigned, also based on the 0 – 3 scale, where the result of “0” indicates that no/limited progress against the relevant indicator is in place, while “3” is the desired progress and state of play.The PbFA Methodology also envisages defining concrete and tangible sources of data, which will serve as the means of verification when conducting the performance evaluation. To the maximum extent possible, the methodology seeks to ensure the use of formal and publicly available documentation, statistics and avoiding parallel data collection systems.Methodology of workThe proposed methodology of work consists from the following: Preliminary desk review;Meetings with MEG Project team, followed by field visits to nine (9) LGs of the North-East Cluster (as referenced above);Further on-line contact with LGs and team management, andThe Final Report write-up for 18 partner LGs.The Final Report should consist of the quantitative part, containing the evidence-based evaluation results summary, and individual results for each of the 18 LGs - clearly referencing individual scores for each of the 27 performance indicators and providing links to relevant means of verification.The Lead Consultant will directly supervise the National Consultant for LG Performance Evaluation, and MEG Project Team will provide full logistical support during the consultancy.More specifically, the Lead Consultant will have the following tasks: Task 1 – Desk reviewFollowing the initial meetings with the MEG Project Team, the Lead Consultant will get him/herself familiar with the MEG Performance-based Financial Assistance (PbFA) Methodology - Cycle II, and the results of the baseline evaluation performed in 18 MEG partner LGs in March 2018.

The workplan and the evaluation report will include evaluation of all 18 partner LGs.The Lead Consultant will receive inputs from the Consultant who will be directly responsible for the evaluation of results of the nine LGs of the North-West Cluster.The Lead Consultant will directly manage and supervise the work of the Consultant.It is envisaged that this task will be delivered by March 1, 2019 and the level of effort will not exceed 4 expert days. Task 2 – Field Visits to nine LGsUpon the approval of the work plan and the structure of the LG Progress Evaluation Report by the MEG Project Team, the Lead Consultant is expected to carry out the LG Progress Evaluation based on the approved work-plan. The MEG Project Team will provide support to the Lead Consultant in organization of the meetings and collection of the relevant means of verification. Depending on the availability, the Lead Consultant may be accompanied by the Project Team in the field visits to nine LGs of the North-East Cluster. The field visits will enable completion of the required set of the relevant means of verification and hence facilitate timely and successful completion of the LG Progress Evaluation Report. The means of verification that, from rational reasons, cannot be presented and submitted by LGs during the evaluation field may be sent (and accepted) via email until the date agreed with the Lead Consultant. However, the date should not be set later than the end of March 2019.It is envisaged that this task will be delivered by March 30, 2019 and the level of effort will not exceed 6 expert days. Task 3 – Team Management As outlined above, for the overall task, one National Lead Consultant for the LG Performance Evaluation (the Lead Consultant) directly covering the LGs of North-East Cluster (Tuzla, Prnjavor, Teslic, Tesanj, Kalesija, Doboj, Zepce, Gracanica and Gradacac), and one National Consultant for the LG Performance Evaluation (the Consultant) covering the LGs of North-West Cluster (Sanski Most, Velika Kladusa, Bosanska Krupa, Kostajnica, Cazin, Dubica, Prijedor, Gradiska and Bihac), will be recruited.The Lead Consultant will be responsible for team management and will provide direct supervision and guidance to the Consultant. It is envisaged that this task will be delivered by April 10, 2019 and the level of effort will not exceed 2 expert days. Task 4 – LG Progress Evaluation ReportThe draft Progress Evaluation Report will be submitted by the Lead Consultant to the Project Team for initial review.

Important development trends like urbanization, climate change, and rising inequalities pose significant challenges on our path to achieve the 2030 agenda of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).UNDP has begun incubating a number of strategic initiatives aimed at ensuring UNDP is ‘fit for purpose’ to deliver a new generation of solutions in line with the challenges the world faces. One such key strategic initiatives is the Country Accelerator Lab Network. The initiative is a recognition that increasingly interrelated development challenges require going beyond business as usual and single point, linear and silver bullet responses in development. Instead, they call for an interdisciplinary approaches and non-linear solutions that crowd in the collective efforts of variety of partners and tap into local insights and the knowledge of people closest to the problem and the solutions. The initiative is also a recognition and an investment in the emerging momentum among a growing number of UNDP Country Offices around joining together disruptive, cutting edge methodologies with contextual, country-based insights and expertise to accelerate impact and progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals. Us:We are building the largest and fastest learning global network of Accelerator Labs (initially setting up 60 labs in 60 countries) embedded within UNDP’s global architecture and country platforms. The new offering builds on the latest thinking from the fields of complexity science, lead user innovation and collective intelligence to accelerate development impact.Our network will surface and reinforce locally sourced solutions at scale while mobilizing a wide and dynamic partnership of actors contributing knowledge, resources and experience. The idea is to transform our collective approach by introducing new protocols, backed by evidence and practice, which accelerate the testing and dissemination of solutions within and across countries. This will enable the global community to collectively learn from local knowledge and ingenuity at a speed and at a scale that our societies and planet require.This will be achieved by:Building on locally-sourced solutions, finding things that work and expanding on them;Rapid testing and iteration to implement what works and go beyond the obvious solutions;Combining the best understanding, ideas and expertise to generate collective knowledge;Accelerating progress by bringing expertise, creativity and collective intelligence to bear.The Accelerator Lab will undertake i) external facing interventions addressing priority development challenges, and ii) internally facing experiments to embed new ways of doing development within the existing UNDP portfolio.UNDP in Bosnia and HerzegovinaUNDP’s main goal in Bosnia and Herzegovina is the democratic and peaceful development of the country, where social, economic and environmental aspects of development coexist in harmony, augmenting the quality of life equitably for all citizens. Programme activities are guided by the aspirations of Bosnia and Herzegovina to become a member of the European Union (EU), as well as by the United Nations Development Assistance Framework 2015-2020 and the Country Programme Document 2015-2019. In partnership with state, entity, cantonal and local governments, and a wide range of socio-economic partners, UNDP in Bosnia and Herzegovina works in the following programme areas: (a) rural and regional development; (b) energy and environment; (c) access to justice and human security; and (d) social inclusion.You:You are capable and excited about starting, design and managing activities, direct engagement with local communities and collaboration across global networks.
