The Nigerian Infrastructure Advisory Facility (NIAF) is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DfID) to support public ministries, departments and agencies in Nigeria to reduce infrastructure constraints to growth and prosperity. NIAF is managed by Adam Smith International (ASI).
From late 2015 both DfID and the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) adopted a renewed focus on service delivery, and in particular unlocking stalled investment in the power sector. NIAF has subsequently defined a Programme Management Unit in agreement with the Transmission Company for Nigeria (TCN) to lead efforts to resolve delivery constraints across 50+ transmission projects.
The role of PMU Leader is to head this new programme management team, reporting directly to the Managing Director - Transmission Service Provider within TCN. The successful candidate will manage a programme team of at least six individuals, and be responsible for a project engineering team of at least 10 individuals that will be embedded in the existing TCN project delivery environment.
The PMU is expected to start work in support of TCN imminently.
