Call for proposals

1. PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVE OF ASSIGNMENT

Chemonics International seeks a Human Resources Consultant for one of its key beneficiary partners, The Permanent Okavango River Basin Commission (OKACOM) to conduct a comprehensive review of the Human Resources Policies and Procedures (HRPP) Manual. OKACOM is a River Basin Organization (RBO) that was established by the Republics of Angola, Namibia and Botswana in 1994. The Commission serves as technical advisor to the Contracting Parties on matters relating to the conservation, development and utilization of water resources of the Cubango-Okavango River Basin. This involves promoting coordinated and sustainable water resources management of the basin, while addressing the legitimate social and economic needs of the Riparian States. In 2013, as part of the strengthening of the OKACOM Structures, several governance and institutional documents were developed to support the efficient functioning of the OKACOM institutional organs. One such document was the HRPP Manual. Its purpose is to set the human resources policies and procedures within OKACOM’s Secretariat (OKASEC).
 
In addition, for OKACOM to effectively implement its Strategic Action Plan (SAP), OKACOM must strengthen its capacity to deliver its strategic mandate. The review and amendment of critical institutional instruments of OKACOM forms the basis of enhancing its institutional governance capacity. One of the critical institutional governance instruments due for review and amendment is the HRPP Manual. The current HRPP has glaring gaps as well as inconsistencies that have made it difficult to implement and hence the need for a review to ensure that it is fit for purpose.
