Consultant - 2020 Appropriation Proposal Bill at ActionAid

Posted on Thu 14th Nov, 2019 - --- (0 comments)

ActionAid Nigeria is an affiliate of ActionAid International, which is a global alliance of organisations working towards achieving a world without poverty and injustice in which every person enjoys the right to a life with dignity. As a large and visible development organisation, we work in more than 40 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and America. Our expertise lies in community-led approaches to development and working through partnerships with the poor and other grass root organisations.

We are recruiting to fill the position below:

Job Title: Consultant - Analysis of the 2020 Appropriation Proposal Bill

Contract: Short Term

Background on the Governance Programme

Within the AAN’s Country Strategy Paper 2019-2023, the governance programme has the core mandate to enhance peoples’ power in a democratic and inclusive governance, while creating linkages with young people, women, the most vulnerable group, the PLWD etc. In line with this, the programme strives to promote accountability and transparency, through which the people are empowered to hold governments and corporates bodies accountable for their stewardship and ultimately build peoples power. It drives to open inclusive and accountable decision-making spaces at different levels of the polity.

To deliver these laudable objectives, the governance engagement focuses on six key thematic areas, namely:
  • Enhancing Democratic Choices for Citizens
  • Making Local Governance Work for the People
  • Institutional Engagement to Promote Inclusive, Accountable and Redistributive Public Finance
  • Promoting Effective Gender Responsive Public Service Delivery for the poor
  • Opening of Shrinking Political & Economic Spaces
  • Fight Against Inequality
Under the programme’s institutional engagement aimed at promoting inclusive, accountable and redistributive public finance, the programme has been pushing for participatory approach to budgeting in Nigeria at all level of the government. It means the involvement of all stakeholders in the different stages of the budget processes, more importantly, from the planning stage to implementation, monitoring and evaluation. This step will enable the citizens and the civil society organizations to technicality support and provide inputs round the budget cycle. The advantages of such wider citizen participation are enormous, eg. improvement in service delivery, efficiency and effectiveness of governance, enabled context for private sector driven growth, enhanced equity and inclusiveness, improved citizens access to public decision making, etc.

Similarly, AAN has been advocating for increased budgetary allocation to the Agriculture, Health and Education sectors given their strategic importance. Agriculture employs up to 80% of the population, especially in the informal sector, where the majority of the small-scale food producers are women farmers. Financial incisiveness should be encouraged through increased access to credit by the small-scale farmers. Improved funding of the education sector will minimize the incessant strikes in our public institutions, enhance quality of education and provision of infrastructures at our basic, secondary and the tertiary institutions. Furthermore, the health sector requires improved funding, our health centers, maternities and hospitals lack basic essential facilities and drugs. Evidences have shown that increased investment in these pro-poor sectors has strong impact on poverty and inequality reduction, while simultaneously creating employment opportunities.

In view of the above strategic needs, the governance programme is seeking the services of a competent consultant to undertake the analysis of the 2020 Appropriation Proposal, focusing on the five key sectors enumerated below:
  • Education
