Scope of Services:
The Resident Advisor will provide on-going support and input to the transformation process of NKB and to the Bank’s management and Supervisory Board, ownership representatives and other relevant stakeholders. The Scope of Services is expected to cover support in all relevant strategic, policy and technical aspects of the process, ranging from supporting high level definitions of strategy to hands-on support in the implementation process.
Broadly the Scope of Services is divided in activities in three areas, as outline below in more details:
1. Strategic and policy advisory
The Resident Advisor will provide support and technical advice in operationalizing and implementing the strategy of GoIRA. Specifically, the Resident Advisor will support NKB management and Supervisory Board in:
 Assessing, reviewing and recommending the development and implementation of a detailed implementation plan.
 Advising on the execution of the business strategy during the transition process, in order to guarantee uninterrupted execution of business objectives and operational performance.
 Supporting valuation processes of assets and contracts.
 Assessing resources needs and HR requirements; including determination of HR capacities.
 Designing HR process to address the integration and consolidation process.
 Developing branch assessment methodology to determine optimal branch location.
 Establishing outreach and communication with all relevant stakeholders
 Documenting progress and challenges in the transition and integration process and implementing appropriate M&E approaches.
 Identifying non-strategic assets and determining an implementation plan for their divestment.
2. Operational and business execution support
Given the relevance of NKB for payroll services in Afghanistan, particularly for the public sector and the security services, particular care will be placed to maintain business services uninterrupted during the transition and integration process. The Resident Advisor will support NKB Management and Supervisory Board to that effect by supporting the development and implementation of detailed operational procedures and contingency plans. Specifically, the Resident Advisor will support Management and the Supervisory Board in:
 Determining operational and business requirements for the transition and integration.
 Developing a detailed implementation plan to modernize operations and business activities of NKB as per GoIRa’s reform strategy.

 Establishing operational risk control measures and oversight arrangements to safeguard business activities during the transition period.
 Establishing joint coordination committees between NKB and BMA business groups.
 Undertaking performance reviews of branches and outlets to determine potential for consolidation and efficiency gains.
3. Coordination and oversight of specialized consulting services
The transition and integration process of NKB into BMA is a multipronged endeavor, encompassing engagements and support in a number of different strategic aspects, including (a) the support of the transitional Governance structures, (b) focused communications efforts to support the rebranding and market positioning of the SB, and (c) significant investments in the modernization of the technological infrastructure and processes. The Resident Advisor is expected to support Management and Supervisory Board in coordinating and overseeing the various activities to be undertaken, in order to ensure that outcomes align with the strategic priorities defined by GoIRA.
The resident advisor will also work in close coordination with the advisory firm that will be recruited by GoIRA for the implementation of the sectoral and structural aspects of the strategy as concerning NKB. Once the advisory firm is on board, the resident advisor will supervise, liaise with and complement the advisory firm’s services, through recommendations to MoF as required. The Resident Advisor is expected to be placed at NKB, a few weeks before the advisory firm is on the ground. The resident advisor will be responsible for undertaking preliminary reviews, preparing key documentation, and taking key first initial actions in the implementation of the GoIRA strategy.
Furthermore, the Resident Advisor is expected to coordinate and consult closely and as needed its work efforts with the Project Banking Expert Advisor assigned to the project implementation team in MoF.
