RTI International in collaboration with Plan International and other partners is implementing a 4-year USAID funded Effective Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (E-WASH) project. E-WASH will provide technical assistance to state governments to improve urban water service delivery by strengthening the governance, financial, and technical viability of five (5) state water Corporations in Nigeria. This is part of the United States Government’s (USG) efforts working with the Federal Government to address the heart of the challenges faced by the urban water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services. The overall goal is improvement of urban water and sanitation service delivery.
The Effective Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (E-WASH) project, is seeking to identify dynamic and technically strong Organizational Development, Human Capital Development and Human Resource Development Consultants to support in the training of line Management and Middle Management staff in the State Water Corporations of Imo, Taraba, Abia, Niger and Delta States. The consultants are expected to carryout the training in the State Water Corporations’ offices.
The E-WASH Program is seeking to engage a Short-Term Technical Assistant to develop the capacity of key stakeholders, Top and Middle Management staff of the water corporation in how to conduct a successful Strategic Planning Retreat and the training on effective use of Job Descriptions for effective Utility development. Strategic and business plans are part of the best practices today that guide high performing organizations on a journey into the future where they plan to be. The USAID/E-WASH program supported the five intervention states to develop strategic and business plans through the Organizational Development (OD) assignments. As part of the OD assignments, all the 5 SWCs now have well developed and documented strategic and business plans. These short- and long-term plans cut across activities of all the functional departments of the SWCs. To this end it is important that key stakeholders within the states as well top management of the SWCs have a clear grasp of how to always map their strategy and future of their corporation as well as review their state strategic and business plans. Similarly, Job Descriptions were also developed for key offices and departments in the utilities. To strictly abide and enforce these is a herculean task for organizations that have not been disciplined so to do. The assignment therefore seeks to strengthen line manager’s understanding of the use of Job Descriptions to ensure the dynamic growth of the organization and strengthen communication across staff and units.
