The purpose of the five-year (2020-2025) “State Accountability, Transparency and Effectiveness” (“State2State”) Activity is to increase the accountability, transparency, and effectiveness of governance in selected state and local governments (LGAs) in Nigeria. From the project main office in Bauchi, State2State is currently working in the following six core states, along with a small project component at the national/federal level: Adamawa, Akwa Ibom, Bauchi, Ebonyi, Gombe and Sokoto. State2State’s overall purpose will be achieved by supporting three mutually supportive development objectives:
State2State will strengthen subnational governance systems in a sustainable manner, supporting the efforts of local reformers and building on locally derived solutions including, to the extent possible, good practices and reforms that are already working well in other parts of Nigeria.
The PFM Advisor will have a primary technical leadership role along with a secondary role of activity coordination of PFM Specialists, Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) Specialist, and STTA PFM/IGR consultants, across core states. Instrumental to successful coordination will be the facilitation of timely and quality communication ensuring staff properly plans for and is responsive to the State2State contract. All PFM work must explicitly address intermediate and sub-intermediate results and specific performance indicators per the annual workplan and monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) plan. The PFM Advisor will travel to state offices and expansion states (TBC with USAID) to engage with stakeholders and State2State teams, working closely with state government structures through which technical assistance is closely coordinated.
Working together with the state-based teams and main office technical staff, the PFM Advisor will provide technical leadership to PFM technical assistance provided to beneficiary states, and this support will include new perspectives and approaches that are aligned with good practices and cross-cutting lenses such as gender, equity, and social inclusion (GESI), and conflict management. Ongoing and prospective areas of technical assistance that will be led, managed, or overseen by the PFM Advisor include, but are not limited to, the following:
Reporting: The PFM Advisor will report to the Chief of Party.
