Description of the contract

SUMMARY 1. These Terms of Reference are for technical expertise in budgeting and public financial management reform to support the Government of Pakistan to implement its Medium Term Budgetary Framework (MTBF) reforms and build the capacity of the Budget Wing in the Ministry of Finance (MoF). 2. The Government’s MTBF reforms have made significant progress in recent years. A comprehensive MTBF system has been designed, tested and put into practice. However, while Budget Wing has taken over the administration of the MTBF it lacks technical skills to operate the new system. The skills in macroeconomics, fiscal analysis and output-based budgeting necessary to operate the MTBF are currently provided by a DFID-funded consultancy team based in Budget Wing. Technical capacity-building in the various instruments of the MTBF and full handover by the consultants has not yet taken place due to lack of appropriate appointments within MoF. 3. The Ministry of Finance will make appropriate appointments to Budget Wing in 2011 to enable it to build the technical capacity to operate the MTBF system of budgeting. For this reason, DFID is seeking to engage a consultancy team for a period of 12 months to support continued capacity-building in Budget Wing and enable transfer of technical capacity to the MoF.
