Organizational Background and Reporting

The United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) in the Central African Republic will end on 31 December 2022. The UN in CAR in collaboration with Government and other stakeholders are elaborating its successor the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) for the period 2023-2027. The UNSDCF which will come into effect on January 1st, 2023, constitutes the most important instrument for planning and implementation of the UN development activities at country level in support to national priorities.

With the roll-out of the new UNSDCF, new data management and reporting structures will be established to enhance the planning, implementation, monitoring, reporting and evaluation of the UNSDCF as well as to strengthen UN country team’s accountability. UN-INFO is the UN’s principal online tool for planning, monitoring, and reporting of the strategic framework. Along with the start of the Cooperation Framework, UN-INFO needs to be updated with the latest project information that is relevant for the next five years. To monitor the implementation of the RCPCA, the Kobo Toolbox was also rolled-out platform which is a government-led tracking system and for which the RCO is providing residual technical support. The maintaining of these platforms requires close collaboration among all UN entities working in the Central African Republic.

To achieve this end, the Resident Coordination Office in the Central African Republic which provides organizational, advisory and management support to the Resident Coordinator and the UNCT, as well coordination and facilitation of the UN joint strategic planning, seeks temporary support to strengthen its capacity by recruiting an international consultant to support the roll-out of the 2023-2027 UNSDCF.
