******************************* *Organizational Governance Consultant Afghanistan
Plan International USA is seeking an Organizational Governance Consultant from March - October 2014. Number of Days: Maximum (108). Background: Health Policy Project (HPP) - Afghanistan: Futures Group and partners (including Plan International USA) is implementing the Health Policy Project (HPP), a global, 5 year cooperative agreement funded by USAID. The overall goal of HPP is to strengthen developing country national and sub-national policy, advocacy, and governance for strategic, equitable, and sustainable health programming. HPP focuses on key health issues, namely: family planning/ reproductive health (FP/RH), HIV, and maternal health (MH) while also promoting health systems strengthening and program integration. Central elements of HPP revolve around building in-country capacity, institutionalizing achievements of past investments, and promoting country ownership of programs and initiatives. HPP in Afghanistan is conceived to build the capacity of the MOPH in its stewardship role with respect to the private health sector and to build and strengthen MOPH's capacity in the design, negotiation and management of large hospital PPPs and ensure the long-term sustainability of health programs. It also seeks to build the capacity of local organizations in order to enable them to become better partners with government in the delivery of high-quality health services through the private health sector. HPP builds on the work of several prior USAID-funded projects in Afghanistan, including the COMPRI-A, a social marketing and behavior change communication (BCC) project designed to increase access to and use of high- quality basic health products and services by women of reproductive age and children under the age of five, especially in rural and underserved areas, through the private sector. This culminated in the establishment of the Afghan Social Marketing Organization (ASMO), an independent national Afghan-owned and managed NGO, which took on the social marketing aspect of COMPRI-A as a subcontractor to the project and now, as a subcontractor to HPP. In addition to the establishment of ASMO, the COMPRI-A Project also provided technical (and in some cases, financial) support to several other local associations and organizations, including the Afghanistan Private Hospital Association (APHA), the Afghan National Medicines Services Organization (ANMSO), and the Afghan Midwives Association (AMA) and its sister organization, the Organization of Afghan Midwives (OAM). Financial support and capacity building support for these organizations continues under HPP. These organizations or associations have established Boards of Directors (BoD), but their degrees of functionality vary and each requires significant strengthening. Governance capacity strengthening is needed for all the organizations supported by HPP; some will require basic strengthening, such as the development or review of Terms of References (ToRs) for the Board - and revisions to some or all of them may be needed. Assistance is needed regarding roles and responsibilities, defining authorities, and how senior staff report to the BoD and introducing templates for that reporting, and for facilitating close collaboration between the two. The BoDs also need technical assistance with how to review and approve certain information (annual budget, policies/ procedures, annual audit, etc.). This consultancy builds on previous governance work already accomplished with ASMO. This scope was to: review and strengthen the ASMO BoD ToR, by-laws and operating guidelines; improve clarification of roles and responsibilities between the Board and Senior ASMO staff; increase awareness of financial roles and responsibilities in governing ASMO; and to strengthen communication between the BoD and Senior ASMO staff. Several recommendations from an initial Board assessment remain to be addressed to further strengthen the ASMO BoD and executive team's capacity to improve ASMO's governance. Scope of Work: HPP/Afghanistan is looking for an experienced consultant in organizational governance strengthening to support ongoing ASMO needs and to assist with the needs of the other organizations and associations noted above. The Consultant will perform services as an independent Contractor, under the direction of HPP Afghanistan's Team Leader, and the Senior Technical Advisor for HPP Afghanistan, in communication with Plan International USA Senior Technical Advisor on HPP. This will require both in-country short-term assistance (up to 3 trips of 2 weeks in duration) and ongoing distance support to review progress, assess and support outstanding capacity development needs through training, mentoring, tool development, technical assistance, and final status reports. Detailed activities to be finalized in consulting agreement. Deliverables: The consultant will be responsible for preparation of several assessment reports and other tools. Detailed deliverables to be finalized in the consultant agreement. QUALIFICATIONS: At least 10 years of work experience in strengthening the functioning of Boards of Directors and Executive Leadership. Some experience in social marketing and/or the private health sector is desirable. Experience working in Afghanistan and willingness to travel to Kabul for at least three 2-week TDYs. Strong interpersonal and communication skills. TO APPLY: Apply via www.planusa.org.
