Financial Management Consultancy for Operationalization of Phase II of the Joint Partnership Fund
The Government of Uganda (GoU) and its Development Partners (DPs) formulated a Joint Water and Sanitation Sector Programme Support (JWSSPS) for 2008-2012.
The JWSSPS Programme document has the following funding modalities for different activities:
- Sector earmarked budget support (via PAF and DWSCG)
- Joint Partnership Fund (Basket funding to the sector)
- Water Supply Development Facility/Fund
Work plans and budgets for the JPF-Phase II during the Inception Phase of the Programme (January - June 2008) have been developed and approved. It has been agreed to obtain the services of a short term financial management consultant to oversee and expedite the formal establishment of the second phase of the Joint Partnership Fund (JPF – Phase II) for the JWSSPS programme.
The key responsibility of the short term Financial Management Consultant (FMC) was the immediate establishment and operationalization of the JPF-Phase II. The FMC further ensured that the JPF operations complied with the new requirements of the JWSSPS and the recommendations from the Fiduciary Risk Assessment Study.
