To effectively contribute to this work, WFD seeks expertise to support development of a parliamentary guide to understand the Auditor General Reports for both levels of government.  The guide will provide key issues that oversight institutions such as parliamentary committees and Civil Society Organizations may rely on while undertaking review of Auditor General Report(s).

  3. Report to WFD. The expert/firm will make a detailed, high-level presentation to WFD on general findings on strong areas of understanding, and where relevant, recommendations for follow-up.

The Consultant will be expected to undertake the assignment within 10 days spread within the month of January 2021. The assignment is expected to start as soon as a contract is awarded.

Proposals may be submitted by individuals, teams of experts or consultancy firms, etc. The selected contractor shall demonstrate proven experience in the topics outlined. Knowledge and experience of Kenya is essential.

The consultants or consultancy firms interested in this assignment are expected to submit proposals (both technical and financial) with CVs of the proposed team.

Interested parties are requested to submit their proposal responding to the terms of reference. The deadline for submission of expressions of interest is 21st January 2021. Applications should be sent by email to john.odhiambo@wfd.org and Cc  elijah.ambasa@wfd.org.
