Iraq: Senior Information Communication Technology Associate, GS-7, Baghdad, Iraq,

Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Iraq
Closing date: 22 Oct 2018

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

For every child, [insert tagline]

The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does — in programs, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children’s rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life — in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions — her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society’s most disadvantaged citizens — addressing inequity — not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.

How can you make a difference?

    LSD plays an integral role in the global operations of the field missions. It is one of the fundamental infrastructure components that support the substantive work and the delivery of peacekeeping and special political missions’ mandates.

Nous travaillons dans des environnements difficiles tels que le Pakistan, l’Afghanistan, le Sud Soudan et l’Iraq.

CFET a pour mission de contribuer à l’amélioration de la performance des travailleurs et de faciliter l’accès à des professionnels talentueux dont les compétences répondent aux besoins et aux codes d’éthique professionnelle.

    CFET en partenariat avec Management Systems International (MSI) gère le programme KONEKTE de l’USAID afin de donner une Assistance Technique au Gouvernement Haïtien.

    Résumé du Projet :
    Lancé par USAID en novembre 2012, KONEKTE (KONesans E Konpetans TEknik) est un programme de trois ans conçu pour assister le gouvernement Haïti à augmenter les capacités au sein des ministères haïtiens en identifiant et plaçant des conseillers expérimentés aux postes clés. KONEKTE est un partenariat entre une firme haïtienne de ressources humaines et développement, Centre de Formation et d’Encadrement Technique (CFET), USAID et le Gouvernement d’Haïti (GOH) qui vise à renforcer les capacités locales pour créer une Haïti plus stable et viable. Le partenaire principal de KONEKTE au sein du GOH est l’Office de Management et des Ressources Humaines (OMRH). KONEKTE travaille en étroite collaboration avec l’OMRH pour identifier des conseillers de haut niveau à travers un processus de recrutement transparent et compétitif qui accorde la priorité aux compétences spécialisées des Haïtiens et de la diaspora haïtienne. Chaque Conseiller est placé dans un Ministère pour combler un écart de compétence. De plus, en accord avec les objectifs de l’initiative ” USAID Forward », KONEKTE renforce la capacité de l’OMRH pour pouvoir assurer la pérennité des acquis de KONEKETE quand le programme arrive à sa fin.

    La Direction Générale (DG) du MEF est le maître d’œuvre chargé de la mission. La DG a organisé un groupe opérationnel comprenant 10 agents du Ministère et relevant de plusieurs Directions générales et organismes associés au Ministère. Ce groupe opérationnel ou comité de projet est spécifiquement en charge de la définition et de la mise en œuvre du Schéma Directeur Informatique. Le groupe opérationnel est dirigé par un chef de projet nommé par Monsieur le Directeur Général.

    L’expert conduira la mission sous la direction du chef de projet du groupe opérationnel et sous la supervision de Monsieur le Directeur Général. L’équipe AMOA appuie les travaux du groupe opérationnel. La mission d’Assistance à la Maitrise d’Ouvrage (AMOA) a démarré le 1erAvril 2015 et elle est assurée par deux experts.

    Description du Poste :
    L’Office de Management et des Ressources Humaines (OMRH) de concert avec le Ministère des Finances avec l’appui technique de KONEKTE, un programme financé par l’USAID, recrute un Responsable des Développements Informatiques pour renforcer l’Unité Informatique (UI) et la transformer en une véritable Direction des systèmes d’Information (DSI).

    A noter : USAID/Haïti a le droit d’annuler ce poste à tout moment**

    Date d’Echéance : 19 octobre 2016

    Lieu et Durée du Poste :

    Le poste aura une durée de 18 mois. Le Responsable des Développements Informatiques sera basé au Ministère de l’Economie et des Finances (MEF), Port-au-Prince, Haïti et sera sous la supervision du Directeur Général.

    I. CONTEXTE GÉNÉRAL

    Suite au tremblement de terre survenu le 12 Janvier 2010, les infrastructures informatiques du MEF ont partiellement été détruites. Un très important travail de reconstruction a été réalisé et le niveau de service d’avant le séisme a maintenant été atteint et même dépassé.

    Il convient maintenant d’avancer et de progresser vers un système informatique plus intégré et plus fiable, dans un environnement marqué par la mise en œuvre de la stratégie et le plan d’action pour la réforme des finances publiques, adoptés par le gouvernement depuis mai 2014.

    L’Unité Informatique (UI) du Ministère de l’Economie et des Finances (MEF) est en charge de tous les développements informatiques du Ministère y compris les projets d’infrastructures liés aux divers réseaux propriétés du Ministère. Dans ce contexte, un schéma Directeur Informatique (SDI) a été produit qui permet de planifier les développements informatiques sur une période de 5 années (2014-2019).

    La mise en œuvre du SDI doit rapidement être envisagée afin de garantir une mise en place rapide des diverses solutions informatiques prévues tout en respectant la planification sur l’horizon d’application du Schéma Directeur. Parmi les préconisations du SDI figure le renforcement de l’Unité Informatique (UI) et sa transformation en une véritable Direction des systèmes d’Information (DSI).

    II. JUSTIFICATION

    La fonction publique haïtienne est caractérisée par un manque de professionnalisme dû à l’absence de politiques publiques, de normes, de procédures et d’outils de gestion nécessaires l’organisation et au développement de ses structures. La dotation en personnel et les nominations en particulier ne se font pas conformément à un cadre clairement défini, ce qui conduit au recrutement de ressources humaines dans des conditions inappropriées. Le processus recrutement soumis à des pressions extérieures contribue à faire de la fonction publique un instrument politique marqué par des faiblesses structurelles, la démotivation des cadres et par conséquent l’inefficacité. Il s’évidente que les services fournis par cette fonction publique ne correspondent pas aux attentes de la population.

    La création en 2005 de l’OMRH a été une réponse à la nécessité d’élaborer des politiques publiques en ce qui a trait à la rationalisation recrutement et au renforcement des structures de la fonction publique. L’OMRH charge de piloter ce vaste programme de réingénierie institutionnelle offre un encadrement aux ministères et organismes autonomes leur permettant de mettre en œuvre leur plan de reforme sectoriel en matière de gestion des ressources humaines.

    Six années plus tard, cette démarche a pris tout son sens à la suite de l’initiative prise par le gouvernement haïtien de réactiver l’OMRH en le rendant pleinement fonctionnel par la dotation de ressources nécessaires pour remplir sa mission qui consiste, entre autres, à piloter les programmes de reforme dans les ministères et les institutions appartenant à la fonction publique.

    Cet appui destiné à la MEF est de pour renforcer l’Unité Informatique et de la transformer en véritable Direction des Systèmes d’Information (DSI) par le recrutement d’un Administrateur de Base de Données. Il s’agit d’une mission limitée dans le temps. A l’issue de cette Mission le Ministère MEF désignera un membre du personnel administratif qui sera en charge de la poursuite de la mission et de sa continuité opérationnelle.

    L’un des objectifs consistera à la mise en place d’un département des projets à la DSI en charge du développement des applications du Ministère de l’Economie et des Finances. Le schéma Directeur Informatique a défini un nombre important de projets informatiques qui doivent être conduits dans l’horizon d’application de celui-ci.

    Parmi tous ces projets un certain nombre doivent être conduits en maitrise d’œuvre ou en maitrise d’ouvrage par la Direction des Systèmes d’Informations (DSI). En particulier les grands projets comme la mise en place d’un logiciel intégré de type ERP/IFMIS, Décisionnels et autres qui doivent être implémentés au ministère.

    C’est donc un objectif prioritaire de cette mission et du Responsable des Développements Informatiques que de mener à bien ces grands projets.

CFET’s mission is to contribute to improved worker performance and to facilitate access to talented professionals whose skills match the needs and professional ethical codes of clients. CFET, in partnership with Management Systems International (MSI) manages the USAID KONEKTE program in order to provide technical support to the Government of Haiti.

    Project Summary:
    Launched by USAID in November 2012, KONEKTE (KONesans E Konpetans TEknik) is a program designed to assist the Government of Haiti (GOH) with increasing capacity within Haitian ministries by identifying and placing experienced advisors in key positions. KONEKTE is a partnership between a Haitian firm (Centre de Formation et d’Encadrement Technique (CFET)), USAID, and the GOH, which aims to build local capacity to create a more stable and viable Haiti. KONEKTE’s main partner within the GOH is the Office of Management and Human Resources (OMRH). KONEKTE works closely with the OMRH to identify high-level advisors through a transparent and competitive recruitment process that prioritizes the expertise of Haitians and the Haitian Diaspora. Each Advisor is placed in a department to bridge a competence gap. In addition, consistent with the objectives of the USAID Forward initiative, KONEKTE strengthens the OMRH’s ability to ensure the sustainability of the program’s achievements.

    The General Management (GM) of the Ministry of Economy and Finances is responsible for carrying out the project. The GM organized an operational group comprised of 10 ministry agents and concerned several general management teams and agencies associated with the ministry.

    Position Summary:
    The Office of Management and Human Resources (OMRH) together with the Finance Ministry and with technical support from KONEKTE, a program financed by USAID, is recruiting an IT Development Manager to strengthen the IT Unit and transform it into a fully-fledged Information Systems Department.

    To Note: USAID/Haiti has the right to annul this post at any time.**

    Closing Date: October 19, 2016
    Location and Duration of Position: The position will last for 18 months. The IT Development Manager will be based at the MEF in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and will be under the General Director’s supervision.

    I. BACKGROUND

    After the earthquake eruption on January 12th, 2010, the MEF’s IT infrastructure was partially destroyed. Important reconstruction took place and service is now restored and has even surpassed what it was before the quake. The time has now come to advance and progress towards a more integrated and reliable IT system, against the back drop of the public finance reform’s strategy and action plan implementation, which the government adopted in May of 2014.

    The MEF’s IT unit is responsible for the Ministry’s IT developments, including infrastructure projects connected to the Ministry’s diverse property networks. Within this context, an Information Technology Master Plan was produced, which allowed for IT development planning over a period of 5 years (2014-2019).

    The implementation of this Information Technology Master Plan must be considered quickly to guarantee the rapid introduction of diverse IT solutions. This must be done while observing the Master Plan’s application planning timeline. The Information Technology Master Plan’s recommendations include reinforcing the IT unit and transforming it into a genuine Information Systems Department.

    II. JUSTIFICATION

    The Haitian Civil Service is characterized by a lack of professionalism, due to the absence of public policies, standards, procedures and management tools necessary to organize and develop its structures. Staffing and nominations in particular do not conform to any well-defined framework, which leads to inappropriate conditions in human resource recruitment. Recruitment processes subjected to external pressures contribute to turning public service into a political tool, marked by structural weaknesses, lack of professional motivation and subsequent inefficiency. It is clear that provided services do not meet the population’s expectations.

    The OMRH was created in 2005 as a response to the need to develop public policies in recruitment streamlining and in strengthening civil service structures. OMRH is in charge of steering this vast institutional reengineering project that offers coaching to ministries and autonomous agencies, permitting them to implement their sector reform plans in human resource management.

    Six years later, this action took on full significance after the Haitian government took the initiative to reactivate OMRH, making it fully functional with the necessary resources to fulfill its mission. Among others, this mission is to pilot reform programs in ministries and institutions that are part of the civil service.

    This support to the MEF serves to strengthen the IT Unit and transform it into a fully-fledged Information Systems Department through the recruitment of a Database Administrator. This mission is within a limited period of time. At the end of this mission the MEF will designate an administrative personnel member who will be in charge of continuing the mission and overseeing its continuous operation.

    Organization: Management Systems International
    Country: Haiti
    Closing date: 04 Nov 2016

    Database Administrator – Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) – Port-au-Prince, Haiti

    Company Profile:
    Management Systems International is a Washington, DC based international development firm with a 35-year history of delivering development results across the world. We operate in some of the most challenging political and economic climates in the world, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, South Sudan and Iraq. MSI currently employs 800 development experts in the fields of public sector management, monitoring and evaluation, governance and anti-corruption.

    Founded on October 1 st , 1988, the Centre de Formation et d’Encadrement Technique (CFET) is a private Haitian firm specializing in Management and Human Resources Development. CFET’s mission is to contribute to improved worker performance and to facilitate access to talented professionals whose skills match the needs and professional ethical codes of clients. CFET, in partnership with Management Systems International (MSI) manages the USAID KONEKTE program in order to provide technical support to the Government of Haiti.

    Project Summary:
    Launched by USAID in November 2012, KONEKTE (KONesans E Konpetans TEknik) is a program designed to assist the Government of Haiti (GOH) with increasing capacity within Haitian ministries by identifying and placing experienced advisors in key positions. KONEKTE is a partnership between a Haitian firm (Centre de Formation et d’Encadrement Technique (CFET)), USAID, and the GOH, which aims to build local capacity to create a more stable and viable Haiti. KONEKTE’s main partner within the GOH is the Office of Management and Human Resources (OMRH). KONEKTE works closely with the OMRH to identify high-level advisors through a transparent and competitive recruitment process that prioritizes the expertise of Haitians and the Haitian Diaspora. Each Advisor is placed in a department to bridge a competence gap. In addition, consistent with the objectives of the USAID Forward initiative, KONEKTE strengthens the OMRH’s ability to ensure the sustainability of the program’s achievements.

    The General Management (GM) of the Ministry of Economy and Finances is responsible for carrying out the project. The GM organized an operational group comprised of 10 ministry agents and concerned several general management teams and agencies associated with the ministry. This operational group or project committee is specifically in charge of defining and implementing the Information Technology Master Plan. The General Director names the Chief of Party to lead the operational group.

    The expert will run the mission under the direction of the operational group’s Chief of Party and under the General Director’s supervision. The Haitian team Assistance à la Maitrise d’Ouvrage (AMOA) supports the work of the operational group. AMOA’s mission began on April 1st, 2015 and is ensured by two experts.

    Position Summary:
    The Office of Management and Human Resources (OMRH) together with the Finance Ministry and with technical support from KONEKTE, a program financed by USAID, is recruiting a Database Administrator to strengthen the IT Unit and transform it into a fully-fledged Information Systems Department.

    To Note: With equal competence, preference will be given to Haitian professionals.**

    *USAID/Haiti has the right to annul this post at any time.**

    Closing Date: October 19, 2016

    Location and Duration of Position:
    The position will last for 18 months. The Database Administrator will be based at the MEF in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and will be under the General Director’s supervision.

    1. BACKGROUND

    After the earthquake eruption on January 12th, 2010, the MEF’s IT infrastructure was partially destroyed. Important reconstruction took place and service is now restored and has even surpassed what it was before the quake. The time has now come to advance and progress towards a more integrated and reliable IT system, against the back drop of the public finance reform’s strategy and action plan implementation, which the government adopted in May of 2014.

    The MEF’s IT unit is responsible for the Ministry’s IT developments, including infrastructure projects connected to the Ministry’s diverse property networks. Within this context, an Information Technology Master Plan was produced, which allowed for IT development planning over a period of 5 years (2014-2019). The implementation of this Information Technology Master Plan must be considered quickly to guarantee the rapid introduction of diverse IT solutions. This must be done while observing the Master Plan’s application planning timeline. The Information Technology Master Plan’s recommendations include reinforcing the IT unit and transforming it into a genuine Information Systems Department.

    II. JUSTIFICATION

    The Haitian Civil Service is characterized by a lack of professionalism, due to the absence of public policies, standards, procedures and management tools necessary to organize and develop its structures. Staffing and nominations in particular do not conform to any well-defined framework, which leads to inappropriate conditions in human resource recruitment. Recruitment processes subjected to external pressures contribute to turning public service into a political tool, marked by structural weaknesses, lack of professional motivation and subsequent inefficiency. It is clear that provided services do not meet the population’s expectations.

    The OMRH was created in 2005 as a response to the need to develop public policies in recruitment streamlining and in strengthening civil service structures. OMRH is in charge of steering this vast institutional reengineering project that offers coaching to ministries and autonomous agencies, permitting them to implement their sector reform plans in human resource management.

    Six years later, this action took on full significance after the Haitian government took the initiative to reactivate OMRH, making it fully functional with the necessary resources to fulfill its mission. Among others, this mission is to pilot reform programs in ministries and institutions that are part of the civil service.

    This support to the MEF serves to strengthen the IT Unit and transform it into a fully-fledged Information Systems Department through the recruitment of a Database Administrator. This mission is within a limited period of time. At the end of this mission the MEF will designate an administrative personnel member who will be in charge of continuing the mission and overseeing its continuous operation.

    One objective will consist of consolidating the department responsible for running the Ministry of Economy and Finance’s information systems. Implementing the Information Technology Master Plan and building different MEF entities will generate a great number of important business applications and new IT infrastructure tools. These applications will involve daily database use. The Ministry must guarantee the data’s quality and availability in real time through permanent maintenance of these databases.

    In particular, these databases consist of Back Office applications on which rest essentially a large part of the Ministry of Economy and Finance’s main functions. They regroup the ERP/IFMIS, the GED and other crosscutting applications, including the Information Systems Department, which must ensure optimal running conditions. As a result, a priority of the Database Administrator post is guaranteeing data quality and constant availability.

    III. RESPONSABILITES

    Organization: Management Systems International
    Country: Haiti
    Closing date: 04 Nov 2016

    **Information Systems Security Manager –
    Ministry of **Economy and Finance (MEF)

    • Port-au-Prince, Haiti**

    Company Profile:
    Management Systems International is a Washington, DC based international development firm with a 35-year history of delivering development results across the world.

    Founded on October 1 st , 1988, the Centre de Formation et d’Encadrement Technique (CFET) is a private Haitian firm specializing in Management and Human Resources Development. CFET’s mission is to contribute to improved worker performance and to facilitate access to talented professionals whose skills match the needs and professional ethical codes of clients. CFET, in partnership with Management Systems International (MSI) manages the USAID KONEKTE program in order to provide technical support to the Government of Haiti.

    Project Summary:
    Launched by USAID in November 2012, KONEKTE (KONesans E Konpetans TEknik) is a program designed to assist the Government of Haiti (GOH) with increasing capacity within Haitian ministries by identifying and placing experienced advisors in key positions. KONEKTE is a partnership between a Haitian firm (Centre de Formation et d’Encadrement Technique (CFET)), USAID, and the GOH, which aims to build local capacity to create a more stable and viable Haiti. KONEKTE’s main partner within the GOH is the Office of Management and Human Resources (OMRH). KONEKTE works closely with the OMRH to identify high-level advisors through a transparent and competitive recruitment process that prioritizes the expertise of Haitians and the Haitian Diaspora. Each Advisor is placed in a department to bridge a competence gap. In addition, consistent with the objectives of the USAID Forward initiative, KONEKTE strengthens the OMRH’s ability to ensure the sustainability of the program’s achievements.

    The General Management (GM) of the Ministry of Economy and Finances is responsible for carrying out the project. The GM organized an operational group comprised of 10 ministry agents and concerned several general management teams and agencies associated with the ministry. This operational group or project committee is specifically in charge of defining and implementing the Information Technology Master Plan. The General Director names the Chief of Party to lead the operational group.

    The expert will run the mission under the direction of the operational group’s Chief of Party and under the General Director’s supervision. The Haitian team Assistance à la Maitrise d’Ouvrage (AMOA) supports the work of the operational group. AMOA’s mission began on April 1st, 2015 and is ensured by two experts.

    Position Summary:
    The Office of Management and Human Resources (OMRH) together with the Finance Ministry and with technical support from KONEKTE, a program financed by USAID, is recruiting a Information Systems Security Manager to strengthen the IT Unit and transform it into a fully-fledged Information Systems Department.

    To Note: USAID/Haiti has the right to annul this post at any time.**

    Closing Date: October 19, 2016

    Location and Duration of Position:
    The position will last for 18 months. The Information Systems Security Manager will be based at the MEF in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and will be under the General Director’s supervision.

    I. BACKGROUND

    After the earthquake eruption on January 12th, 2010, the MEF’s IT infrastructure was partially destroyed. Important reconstruction took place and service is now restored and has even surpassed what it was before the quake. The time has now come to advance and progress towards a more integrated and reliable IT system, against the back drop of the public finance reform’s strategy and action plan implementation, which the government adopted in May of 2014.

    The MEF’s IT unit is responsible for the Ministry’s IT developments, including infrastructure projects connected to the Ministry’s diverse property networks. Within this context, an Information Technology Master Plan was produced, which allowed for IT development planning over a period of 5 years (2014-2019).

    The implementation of this Information Technology Master Plan must be considered quickly to guarantee the rapid introduction of diverse IT solutions. This must be done while observing the Master Plan’s application planning timeline. The Information Technology Master Plan’s recommendations include reinforcing the IT unit and transforming it into a genuine Information Systems Department.

    II. JUSTIFICATION

    The Haitian Civil Service is characterized by a lack of professionalism, due to the absence of public policies, standards, procedures and management tools necessary to organize and develop its structures. Staffing and nominations in particular do not conform to any well-defined framework, which leads to inappropriate conditions in human resource recruitment. Recruitment processes subjected to external pressures contribute to turning public service into a political tool, marked by structural weaknesses, lack of professional motivation and subsequent inefficiency. It is clear that provided services do not meet the population’s expectations.

    The OMRH was created in 2005 as a response to the need to develop public policies in recruitment streamlining and in strengthening civil service structures. OMRH is in charge of steering this vast institutional reengineering project that offers coaching to ministries and autonomous agencies, permitting them to implement their sector reform plans in human resource management.

    Six years later, this action took on full significance after the Haitian government took the initiative to reactivate OMRH, making it fully functional with the necessary resources to fulfill its mission. Among others, this mission is to pilot reform programs in ministries and institutions that are part of the civil service.

    This support to the MEF serves to strengthen the IT Unit and transform it into a fully-fledged Information Systems Department through the recruitment of a Database Administrator. This mission is within a limited period of time. At the end of this mission the MEF will designate an administrative personnel member who will be in charge of continuing the mission and overseeing its continuous operation.

    One particular objective will be to set up a unit responsible for Information Systems Security. This unit will participate, under the Information System Director’s authority, in the implementation of the DSI’s strategic direction concerning information systems security, realized by the Information Systems Security Policy (PSSI). PSSI was defined and validated in the middle of the first trimester of 2016.

    The Information Systems Security Manager will have, among other main objectives, to:

    • Support the Information Systems Director thanks to his or her mastery of information systems security;
    • Lead the Information Systems Security unit;
    • Execute the Information Systems Security Policy (PSSI), which was defined and validated by the Ministry of Economy and Finance.

    The PSSI expresses the Ministry’s needs in terms of information systems security, and is therefore the reference document for everything that relates to implementing information systems security at the MEF.

    III. RESPONSABILITES

    The Information Systems Security Manager implements, regulates, controls and evaluates information systems security action plans conforming to global PSSI requirements. The person is responsible for putting the PSSI into place.

    In order to carry out expert and advisory missions, he or she must have the ability to lead, energize and motivate teams. In this case, this person plays a project management and facilitation role.

    In order to reach defined objectives, the provider will have to carry out the following activities: Monitor and organize PSSI implementation, particularly concerning:

    • Establishing a global prevention plan, to be proposed as a frame of reference for conceptualizing specific prevention plans to department managers;
    • Participating in realizing the MEF’s security charter;
    • Defining security standards for each department manager according to PSSI prescriptions;
    • Evaluating risks, threats, and their specific consequences for each department manager;
    • Instructing general, operational, and departmental management security units; etc.
    • Leading unit responsible for Information Systems Security;
    • Informing General Director and Information Systems Director;
    • Promoting the IT security charter amongst all users;
    • Technically validating security tools;
    • Controlling and ensuring efficiency of team members who must apply IT systems security rules and principles;
    • Continuous auditing of the Ministry’s IT system weaknesses;
    • Activate crisis units in case of emergency;
    • Monitor regulatory and technical evolutions in IT systems security.

    More generally the provider will have to bring his or her functional and technical expertise to the table. He or she will thus serve as head of the information systems security unit.

    IV. QUALIFICATIONS

    1. Qualifications and Technical Skills: Master (BAC + 5) in IT engineering; Overall project management skills (budget, human and material means, deadlines); Internal knowledge of large administrations or companies (IT applications used, and departments); Certification in International Information Systems Audit (CISA) or “Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP)” is a plus;
    2. Work Experience: More than 15 years of professional experience in the IT field; Expertise in information systems security; Instructor experience a plus.
    3. Specific Experiences: Has already developed Information System Security Policies (PSSI) for large private groups or administrations; has implemented Information System Security Policies; has demonstrated experience in Information Systems Security
    4. Personal Skills: Superior communication skills
    5. IT Skills: Technical IT knowledge (operating systems, development tools, programming languages)
