Job Summary

In November 2015 MSI was awarded a three-year contract to conduct third party monitoring (TPM) of Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF) projects for the World Bank. The ARTF-TPM program was put in place to meet a number of objetives:

1. Given an increasingly challenging security environment, the TPM program provides critical data from the field as input to the World Bank’s implementation support and GoA line ministries’ own monitoring systems. The TPM program provides data on nationwide project sites, including asset verification and quality assurance, where World Bank staff are not always able to systematically visit the sites of geographically widely disbursed projects.
2. The TPM program provides additional evidence that World Bank-funded programs are being implemented correctly, provides assurance to donors, focusing on infrastructure quality assurance and social and environmental safeguards, gender issues and select financial/fiduciary aspects.
3. The Supervisor Agent (SA) provides GoA line ministries with project monitoring and data collection support and shows how such practices could improve GoA project performance and results. This also helps strengthen GoA line ministries’ own monitoring programs. The SA reports directly to the World Bank, but also works closely with GoA line ministries responsible for project implementation at local and central levels.

**Please note: Only Afghan citizens are eligible for this position. **
The incumbent of this position, stationed at the Balkh province or at his/her home of reference, is responsible for conducting a pre-determined number of detailed monitoring inspections of selected EQUIP sub-projects across Afghanistan each month following a data collection protocol and using a World Bank-approved checklist, while complying with MSI security procedures. After each mission the incumbent will diligently review and correct, where necessary, all the collected data and when finished, transfer all the data to the MSI office in Kabul for further processing and reporting.

Knowledge of and the ability to travel throughout the project location area is vital to accomplishing the duties for the position. Preference will be given to local candidates.
