About Ministry of Finance:

Founded:

The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has received financing from the World Bank toward the cost of the Fiscal Performance Improvement Project (FPIP), and intends to apply part of the proceeds for hiring of an Individual Consultant for the position of Senior Procurement and Contract Management Specialist. 

The FPIP/FSP is organized around four complementary investment components supporting Government-executed technical assistance, capacity building, and IT infrastructure. The FSP is designed with greater flexibility in allocating investment resources where they are needed. Funds unspent in one department could be shifted to another (within and across components) through changes in the activity and procurement plans, which would be updated regularly. This in-built flexibility is significantly greater than in previous PFM projects.
