NKE 8: Intelligence-Led Policing and SOCTA experts –EP/0040/18–

Organization: The International and Ibero-American Foundation for Administration and Public Policies
Closing date: 13 Apr 2018

Background information:
FIIAPP is a foundation of the State public sector whose activities, characterised by the absence of profit and the pursuit of the general interest, are framed in the field of international cooperation aimed at institutional modernisation, the reform of public administrations and the attainment of democratic governance.
FIIAPP is searching for short-term experts in several areas of DDR – Drug Demand Reduction (prevention, treatment, rehabilitation), and DSR – Drug Supply Reduction (criminal justice, including law-enforcement, prosecution and corrections).
The selected specialists will be part of a pool of experts conducting assessments, training, seminars and mentoring in designated countries within the geographical scope of the Project (Heroin routes), in order to assist beneficiary countries in the adaptation of their policies, legislation, mechanisms and practices to the best international standards in preventing and combating drug-related organized crime.
The pool of experts is valid until December 2020.

Information about the project:
The Project ‘EU Action against Drugs and Organized Crime (EU-ACT)’ is funded by the European Union Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace, and it is managed by the International Foundation of Administration and Public Policies (FIIAPP) from Madrid, Spain.
EU-ACT tackles both drug demand and drug supply reduction. It assists beneficiary countries in preventing consumption, as well as addressing demand-reduction policies and practices, in addition to reinforcing the due process-compliant capacities to better address drug-related organized crime, building meaningful trust and networking amongst countries and relevant institutions that will enable them to cooperate (trans-) regionally while ensuring compliance with human rights and the rule of law.
The duration of the Project is four years (from January 2017 to December 2020) and its geographical scope includes selected countries along the ‘Heroin Route‘ from and to Afghanistan, in the regions of South and Central Asia, Eastern Europe, South Caucasus and East Africa.
Project permanent staff includes 7 Key Experts (1 Team Leader, 1 Project Deputy, 5 Regional Coordinators) and 5 Local Experts; and a Coordination unit at FIIAPP HQ.
The Regional Coordinators are based in Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan), Kyiv (Ukraine), Tbilisi (Georgia), Islamabad (Pakistan), and Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania).

Selection process of NKE 8 on Intelligence-Led Policing Expert:
The activities will aim to enhance the law enforcement agencies’ ability to exchange information, be it intra-service, inter-agency, or internationally. The experts will promote the use of information exchange mechanisms, investigation techniques, analytical investigation methods and criminal intelligence analysis, including the production and use of Serious Organised Crime Threat Assessments (SOCTA).
The experts will introduce and promote the concepts of intelligence-led policing. They will deliver associated presentations and training, hosting seminars and conducting relevant needs-assessment and mentoring in support of these concepts.
As a result of these activities, approved materials on the development of SOCTAs and material on the intelligence-led approach to combatting crime will be distributed. Awareness and understanding of these approaches will be improved. It is expected that these techniques and procedures will be developed in law-enforcement agencies.
At any stage of the implementation of these activities the experts will, in conjunction with the project team, identify specific activities that can be carried out to further develop a structured intelligence-led model in each country, and thus improve bi-lateral and trans-regional information exchange.

Location of work: the expert(s) will perform their work at home (preparation when necessary) and/or in some of the countries in the regions of South and Central Asia, Eastern Europe, South Caucasus, and East Africa.

Duration of the assignment: the time to be employed varies according to the specific needs of the mission. It is expected that assignments will last from 5-20 working days, not including preparation time. The expert(s) may be required to travel during part or the whole time to some/several of the mentioned regions.

As a result: depending on the precise nature of the mission to implement, the expert(s) may be requested to deliver (a) a training needs-assessment report and/or recommendations on improving the functionality of ILP; (b) a proposed curricula on the subject matter, one for senior staff and another for operational staff; (c) a one-week or two-week training schedule; (d) PowerPoint presentations for each training session; (e) to deliver the corresponding training session in the designated countries; and (f) final training report with assessment of the professional level of the attendees, their performance at the training, and recommendations for future trainings and/or next steps.

Estimated Starting Date: from April 2018 on, depending on Project needs.
