Terms of reference for the design & development of a web based total cost of ownership (TCO) tool

Organization: GESCI
Closing date: 22 Dec 2016

TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR THE DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT OF A WEB BASED TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP (TCO) TOOL

Type: Short Term Consultancy

Start date: 5th January 2017

Finish date: 10th March 2017

1. Introduction

About GESCI: GESCI, the Global E-Schools and Communities Initiative, is a non-profit organization founded by the United Nations in 2003. GESCI, with its headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, provides strategic advice to relevant Ministries in developing countries on the effective use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) within the context of inclusive Knowledge Societies. GESCI works with governments across 16 African countries and African Union Commission in delivering programmes in the areas of ICT in Education, Digital schools development, teachers professional development, Youth Skills Development and Leadership Capacity building for senior level government officials for Knowledge Society development in Africa. To understand more information about GESCI programmes, please visit; www.gesci.org.

2. Background and context for the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Tool

GESCI developed the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) tool during the year 2006. This is an electronic tool which is derived from a framework for identifying and assessing technology options and configurations suitable for schools, their benefits, feasibility and total cost of ownership (TCO) for educational institutions. The framework provides guidance to the user on the range of possible usage approaches, technology platform functionalities and numbers and possible combinations of devices required. The TCO tool has been used in many countries to simulate various technological options to achieve their core educational objectives.

In the past decade technology advancement has been rapid, therefore some of the ICT and the assumptions considered during the development of the first TCO tool in 2006 are obsolete hence the tool requires significant revision and revamp which will incorporate current ICT options for schools and also take in to consideration new and emerging technology, trends and advances, and be inclusive of how the tool will interface with the professional development of teachers, school leadership requirements and education administrators. Developing countries are increasingly prioritizing improving students’ competencies in Science, Technology, English and Mathematics (STEM) subjects, for acquiring the skills for higher order thinking, analysis and synthesis. Within this context, ICT integration in Education is looked at as a strong contributor and accelerator for improved teaching and learning. The TCO tool should create an enabling environment for educational planners to analyze and optimize the technology options and suggest the optimum ICT configurations for (1) large scale deployment in education systems and (2) in deployment of ICT across the school.

3. Problem statement:

The existing TCO tool was designed using Microsoft Excel which is 10 years old and a standalone system. This requires significant redesign to be web based, interactive and updated with current and emerging technology trends and changes in the ICT ecosystem, digital learning resources development, teacher professional development, ongoing support to schools, monitoring and evaluation and programme management expenses. The tool should capture all the expenses associated with capital and recurring costs for various options and provide a consolidated summary for the educational planners and policy implementers.

GESCI recognizes that every region or country has its own unique accounting or costing approaches. The tool is therefore not meant as a “one size fits all”, but rather facilitate a structured approach to considering technology options and possible configurations, platforms, devices and associated technical equipment and supports in order to develop and identify a suitable and reasonable cost estimate. However, the tool must have the flexibility, adaptability and functionality to be relevant and instructive in any educational context

4. Key features of the TCO tool

The existing tool shall be comprehensively reviewed, restructured and re-modelled and include new features and appropriate interactivity. Some of the key features are outlined below.

a) Considers the user’s institutional/school context

· In calculating the TCO, the tool takes account of the institutional/school situation and specifically the size of the school in terms of numbers of teachers, administrators and students. This school context is important as it can influence the number of devices required by the school.

b) Provides the user with different technology and system-wide component options

· This tool asks the user to make the choice of technology bundles including choosing access devices, operating systems, peripherals, internet connectivity and WIFI design and electricity backup devices. The tool should ask a series of questions (numerically coded) relating to the physical structure of schools, type of walls, length of corridors, spread of classrooms and end- to -end distances. This should translate to the generation of advice and suggestions relating to cabling, networking, numbers of routers, servers and the associated costs

· The tool also requires users to make choices among various options for accompanying the system-wide components such as those for content and applications, user training and support, maintenance and technical support etc.,

· After customizing a bundle of technology options and determining the total cost of ownership, the user can change parts of the technology bundle to see if the TCO can be reduced (e.g. running the tool to determine the cost of internet bundles and options)

c) Considers the implementation plan that the institution/school might take

· This tool can calculate the total cost of ownership even when the implementation of the technology is done in phases—for example, when schools choose to spread their technology purchases over a number of years in order to make them more affordable. The tool achieves this by asking users to provide their planned roll-out schedule.

· Allows the user to determine the device lifecycle

• The user can customize equipment replacement costs by stating how long the school intends to keep certain devices (e.g., choosing to use the same laptop for five years versus choosing to replace after three years).

d) Allows for inflation and discounting

• Users can input inflation and discount rates and determine what effect this is likely to have on their TCO over a period of time.

e) Allows the user to change their choices

• After using the tool to determine the TCO of a particular e-school model, the user can go back to earlier steps to change variables and see how different choices can impact the total cost.

f) Allows the user to input additional or unique ICT options

• The tool has been developed to allow for a moderate level of customization by the user by inputting their own ICT options.

5. Key Requirements for the consultant / consultancy / Agency

· Minimum experience of 8 years in developing web based interactive applications involving multiple inputs, simulations, analysis, formats and reporting

  • Minimum 5 experience in successfully developing platforms. Experience in developing & Implementation of website, interactive portal and similar application in Education sector would be an asset

· Samples and breakdown of report generation in similar assignments

· Demonstrable design and layout capabilities

  • Experience and thorough knowledge of technology deployment and ICT applications in the Education sector – specifically in primary and secondary education is a critical and essential requirement

· Good knowledge of programming languages such as Java, JavaScript, Python, CSS, PHP, MySQL, Ruby, Perl, C++ and C

· Strong communication, documentation and presentation skills.

· CV of the consultant(s)

6. Deliverables

· 25 % upon submission prototype

· 50% upon submission of beta version

· 15% upon submission and approval of the TCO tool by GESCI

9. Confidentiality and copyright

United States of America: Senior Health Information Systems Advisor

Organization: Global Health Fellows Program
Country: United States of America
Closing date: 09 Jan 2017

Global Health Fellows Program

Technical Advisor III/IV: Senior Health Information Systems (HIS) Advisor

Strategic Information, Evaluation and Informatics Division, Office of HIV/AIDS, Bureau for Global Health, United States Agency for International Development

Location: Arlington, VA

Assignment: Two year fellowship

GHFP-II-P6-233

The Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP-II) is a five year cooperative agreement implemented and managed by the Public Health Institute in partnership with Global Health Corps, GlobeMed, Management Systems International and PYXERA Global. GHFP-II is supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

GHFP-II’s goal is to improve the effectiveness of USAID health programs by addressing the Agency’s immediate and emerging human capacity needs. The program seeks to accomplish this goal first through the recruitment, placement and support of diverse health professionals at the junior, mid and senior levels. These program participants include fellows, interns, corporate volunteers and Foreign Service National professionals. The program then provides substantial performance management and career development support to participants, including annual work planning assistance, and ensures that professional development opportunities are available.

Looking to the future, GHFP-II also seeks to establish a pool of highly-qualified global health professionals that will ensure the Agency’s ongoing technical leadership and effectiveness. This objective is supported by an extensive outreach program that brings global health opportunities and specialized career advice to a diverse range of interested individuals, with a particular focus on those underrepresented in the field of global health.

BACKGROUND:

The US Government (USG) has made the fight against HIV/AIDS a top priority, not only for humanitarian reasons but because the HIV/AIDS crisis threatens the prosperity, stability and development of nations around the world. USAID has been, and continues to be, at the forefront of the USG response in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic, funding 10 billion dollars in activities since inception of its international HIV/AIDS program in 1986 with programs in nearly 100 countries worldwide. The United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is the largest commitment ever made by any nation for an international health initiative dedicated to a single disease. In July 2008, the United States Congress re-authorized the PEPFAR legislation in the amount of $48 billion, $35.4 billion of which is dedicated to HIV/AIDS services, $3.8 billion to tuberculosis, $4.8 billion to malaria, $1.7 billion to research and $2.3 billion to training health care workers. The Global Fund will receive at least $2 billion per year.

The Bureau for Global Health’s Office of HIV and AIDS (OHA) is the locus of technical leadership for HIV and AIDS programming implemented by USAID. The Office provides input into USG decisions concerning the strategic allocation of financial and human resources in the sector and supports USAID headquarters and field missions in designing and implementing effective HIV and AIDS programs. Within OHA, the Strategic Information, Evaluation, and Informatics (SIEI) Division provides technical and programmatic expertise to help the Agency develop and implement strategies and programs that respond to USG and USAID priorities, particularly in relation to innovations, best practices, and lessons learned in advancing the goals of PEPFAR. SIEI provides technical expertise and support to field missions in cross-cutting areas such as monitoring and evaluation, expenditure analysis, and health informatics.

Health information systems (HIS)/ Health Management Information Systems (HMIS) activities are a key component of PEPFAR Strategic Information (SI) programs. At the facility and community level, HIS assists health care workers in providing high quality and timely care. At the national, regional and Headquarters level, HIS assist public health managers in finding answers to key questions about the state of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, the delivery and process of prevention, care and treatment services, the effectiveness of these services, the capacity needed to improve programs, as well as to plan and report and reach goals impacting the epidemic.

Many countries lack robust health information systems and the related information and communications technology infrastructure (IT) needed to access and report high-quality data. Wherever possible, PEPFAR HIS activities build on existing data and information system standards and infrastructures in program countries. HIS activities target the design, development, implementation, operations, maintenance and evaluation information systems and technologies.

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.

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.

One objective will consist of setting up a projects division within the Information Systems Department, which will be responsible for the Ministry of Economy and Finance’s applications development. The Information Technology Master Plan defined several important IT projects that must be carried out within this time frame.

Among these, the Information Systems Department must drive certain management or support projects. In particular, large projects like setting up ERP/IFMIS integrated software, decisional projects, and others must be implemented at the Ministry.

It is the refore imperative that the IT Development Manager can complete these large projects successfully.

III. RESPONSABILITES

The IT Development Manager will serve as project director. As such the main objectives of the position will include, among others, to:

  • Lead projects;
    • Plan projects;
    • Evaluate project impact in all facets;
    • Ensure quality of developments;
    • Manage project-related spending;
    • Manage sub-contracts and supplier relations in a general way;
    • Ensure recruitment and promotion of IT teams connected to projects;
    • Manage inherent project risks, whether specific developments or integration projects

    • Manage IT security relative to developments coordinated with the Information Systems Security Manager (RSSI)
  • Manage human and material resources attributed to the projects department.
    • Manage project portfolio through action plans

He or she manages projects in all their complexity (multiple stakeholders, often competing interests etc.).

This person is responsible for the strategic challenge of IT projects for the Ministry of Finance.

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

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

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. For more information on MSI, please visit our website at www.msiworldwide.com . MSI has recently become a Tetra Tech Company.

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.

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 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 Deputy Director of Information Systems 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 Deputy Director of Information Systems will be based at the MEF in Port-au-Prince, Haiti and will be under the Director of IT Systems’ 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 t o 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.
