Vacancy Number: Pr16/01378
Ms. Victoria Muntean.email@example.com
The goal of the UNDP “Strengthening Parliamentary Governance in Moldova” Project, further on referred to as the SPGM project, is designed to address the main needs of the Parliament of Moldova in the areas of legislation making, oversight and representation during the on-going process of domestic reform spurred by closer relations with the EU. The project is also assisting in making the Parliament’s legislative activity more open, transparent and participatory through establishing tools and mechanisms for the engagement with the Civil Society, professional associations and general public. Project interventions will offer and encourage equal opportunity for male and female participation.
To support the Members of the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova in its role to curb corruption and with a view to join the Global Organization of Parliamentarians against Corruption (GOPAC), a group of Members of the Parliament of Moldova have established on 12th July 2016 the Moldova National Chapter of the Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption (Moldova National Chapter). The objective of the National Chapter is to strengthen the role of the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova in curbing corruption and promoting transparency and accountability in order to ensure high standards of integrity in the Republic of Moldova. Both current and former Members of the Parliament (MPs) can join the Moldova GOPAC National Chapter. The executive body of the chapter is the Coordinating Council composed of two co-chairs and four additional Members.
To enhance the efficiency of the activity of the Moldova National Chapter and increase its visibility in terms of cooperation with the CSOs, other national GOPAC chapters, and other relevant stakeholders and to facilitate the overall coordination of the activity of the Moldova GOPAC National Chapter, the provision of the administrative and substantive support by means of a Secretariat of the National Chapter is imperative.
In this regard, the SPGM project is seeking to hire a part-time national consultant for a period of 12 months, who will offer support in coordination and implementation of the Moldova GOPAC National Chapter activities.
Scope of work
The expected output for the national consultant is to provide administrative, substantial (activities related to the goal and mission of the chapter) and analytical support to the Moldova National Chapter of GOPAC, being responsible for supporting day-to-day functioning of the Moldova National Chapter. The national consultant shall liaise with CSOs, other GOPAC national chapters and undertake other responsibilities relevant for the overall functioning of the Moldova National Chapter under the guidance and in close cooperation with the Co-Chairs of the Moldova National Chapter and members of the Coordinating Council.
