PRODUCTIVE SAFETY NET PROGRAM PHASE FOUR
TERMS OF REFERENCE for TECHNICAL SUPPORT SPECIALIST (TSS – II)
1. Background on PSNP and TASC
Productive Safety Net Program Phase Four (PSNP4): The PSNP is an integral component of the rural development policy of the government of Ethiopia, to support Ethiopia’s chronically and transitory food insecure rural households. The program is implemented in the eight regions of Afar, Amhara, Dire Dawa, Harari, Oromia, SNNPR, Somali, and Tigray. The program provides cash and/or food transfers to the chronically and transitory food insecure households.
The PSNP4 aims to ensure the development of an efficient and effective system for delivering elements of social protection and disaster risk management. In so doing it also aims to make contributions to the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) and to the achievement of the four key government policies, strategies and programs, namely the Social Protection Policy; the National Policy and Strategy on Disaster Risk Management (NPSDRM); the National Nutrition Programme (NNP), and the Climate Resilient Green Economy (CRGE).
The goal of the program is to enhance resilience to shocks and livelihoods, and improve food security and nutrition for rural households vulnerable to food insecurity. The PSNP4 follows a system-based approach and builds on a number of important lessons learned towards building sustainable social protection and disaster risk management systems in the country. The PSNP4 is a program of the Government of Ethiopia; additional funding for program implementation and management is provided by Development Partners, which is coordinated through the World Bank and the Donor Coordination Team.
The MoF Channel-I Coordination Directorate provides financial management, monitoring and evaluation, institutional linkages and capacity building for PSNP4 implementing agencies and personnel. These activities include providing assistance to the budgeting process to enhance financial management capacity, promoting accountability through facilitating audits and improved monitoring and reporting on programme progress and use of funds, providing support for implementing the financial management guidelines, and liaising with relevant authorities and agencies.
Technical Assistance to Strengthen Capacity Development for PSNP4 (TASC) TASC is a consultancy funded by the Development Partners to support the implementation of PSNP4 for chronically food insecure people in Ethiopia. The purpose of TASC is to strengthen institutional systems, processes, coordination mechanisms, human resources and organizational capacity of federal, regional, zonal and woreda institutions to deliver PSNP4. TASC provides the management oversight and payroll functions for the identified federal level Technical Support Specialists.
To facilitate and support implementation of the above-mentioned mandate, a Technical Support Specialist II (TSS-II) specializing in Financial Management, Analysis and Reporting to support MoF is required in addition to the current existing Financial Management, Analysis and Reporting TSS.
