Country Coordinating Mechanisms of the Global Fund in Rwanda, CCM Rwanda

Job Title

Ethics Officer

Terms and Duration

of Contract

This is a part-time position for 12 Months based on satisfactory performance

Duty Station

Kigali/Rwanda

Job Background

The Country Coordinating Mechanisms (CCMs) are the embodiment of one of the Global Fund’s founding principles, Country Ownership and as the main multi-stakeholder governance body for Global Fund investments at the country level, CCMs play several key roles, including creating funding requests, nominating Principal Recipients, and overseeing grant implementation. In carrying out their work, CCMs have to follow the highest standards of ethics and integrity since ethical and responsible decision-making by CCMs is key for the success of Global Fund programs in countries. Therefore, CCM members need to apply the highest standards of conduct in their work to prevent, detect, and respond to conflicts of interest, unethical conduct and prohibited practices, as ethics and good governance contribute to our ability to deliver on our mission to eradicate the three diseases. Evidence and experience illustrate that improved ethical conduct and conflict of interest management lead to greater trust and improvements in CCM functioning, and contribute towards more robust funding requests, improved grant oversight and ultimately better programmatic performance and health impact. CCMs are required by the CCM Policy through Eligibility Requirement 6 to: approve and adopt the Code of Ethical Conduct for CCM members; develop or update, as necessary, and publish a conflict of interest policy that applies to all CCM members, alternates and CCM Secretariat staff; and enforce the Code of Ethical Conduct and apply the conflict of interest policy throughout the life of Global Fund grants. Additionally, CCMs must ensure new members are trained on the Code, obtain certification from all members that they have complied with, and commit to continue to comply with the Code and either appoint one CCM member as an Ethics Focal Point or, create an Ethics Committee. To support CCMs, the Global Fund is funding a CCM Ethics Officer role, as a part-time position within the CCM Secretariat. The role of the CCM Ethics Officer is to support the Operations function of the CCM, which includes ensuring Ethical leadership and conduct. The CCM Ethics Officer should also serve as the Protection from Sexual Exploitation Abuse and Harassment (PSEAH) Focal Point for the CCM.

JOB VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

Organisation

Country Coordinating Mechanisms of the Global Fund in Rwanda, CCM Rwanda

Job Title

Oversight/Transition Officer

Probation period :  3 Months

The period of performance and expected duration of the contract is 2 years.

Duty Station

Kigali/Rwanda

Job Background

Oversight is a key function of the Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM), focusing on the essential financial, programmatic, and management aspects of the grant portfolio. Global Fund-supported interventions contribute to the broader national health response via an enhanced use of strategic information and a risk management approach. The CCM Secretariat (particularly through the oversight officer) plays a key support role for this function, which ranges from facilitating logistical arrangements and coordination with the oversight committee to information synthesis and analysis.  This document can be used when an oversight officer is part of the staff of the CCM Secretariat or in cases where an Executive Secretary is directly supporting the implementation of Oversight activities for the CCM. The document also considers specific tasks for countries currently preparing for or already going through transition-related processes.

Job Position Objectives

  1. Facilitate and support analytical data-driven discussions and decision-making.
  2. Provide support to oversight planning and implementation.
  3. Provide technical and administrative support to the CCM oversight committee.

Duties and Responsibilities

Operational Area 1: Support Oversight Planning and Implementation

  • Update the CCM oversight plan in coordination with the Executive Secretary and the oversight committee and obtain full endorsement for this plan by the CCM. The oversight officer will then ensure the plan details specific activities, tools, and methods for data collection, analysis and reporting, individual and/or constituency responsibilities, relevant elements and indicators related to risk management, issues related to sustainability or transition (where relevant), and realization of co-financing commitments / co-financing tracking (if possible based on country context). The oversight officer then ensures the plan, tailored to the country’s grant objectives and priorities, is implemented.
  • Assist the oversight committee in the implementation of the annual oversight work plan. Ensure the implementation of activities of the oversight process (i.e. collection of information, analysis, and provision of recommendations to the CCM General Assembly, following up on actions decided by the CCM and sharing oversight information with the Global Fund on a frequent basis).
  • Communicate/coordinate with Principal Recipients (PRs) in the preparation and presentation of oversight reports (based on key insights from the CCM dashboard, progress update/disbursement requests (PUDRs), Grant Management Dashboards, and/or other reporting tools available).
  • If dashboards are available, manage and lead their generation, presentation and analysis.
  • If dashboards are not available, develop and provide appropriate templates and liaise with PRs to establish clear procedures and formats for frequent information sharing.
  • In transition preparedness settings:
  • Support the oversight of the implementation of a transition plan.
  • Conduct oversight of agreed actions to strengthen the sustainability of the national response and/or health systems.
  • Support CCMs to identify key sustainability, transition, and co-financing priorities for targeted efforts.
  • Share and disseminate knowledge on sustainability, transition, and co-financing priorities.
  • In countries with transition grants (i.e., that are transitioning from Global Fund financing):
  • Ensure adequate oversight of the implementation of activities detailed in the transition grant and transition plan.

Operational Area 2: Provide Technical and Administrative Support to the CCM Oversight Committee

  • Support the oversight committee in the implementation of oversight activities throughout the Global Fund’s grant life cycle (i.e., funding request preparation, grant-making, implementation, and closure).
  • Support the preparation and implementation of quarterly oversight committee meetings, ensuring all relevant information is adequately synthesized and organized to facilitate discussions.
  • Support the oversight committee in the preparation and implementation of information collection activities, including meetings with PRs, site visits, and consultations with specific groups (e.g., community-based monitoring initiatives, where these exist).
  • Develop and share procedures and templates to conduct site visits and support the oversight committee in their implementation. Whenever possible, leverage other in-country field visits (e.g. field visits organized by the Ministry of Health and other donors, etc.). Specific tasks include:
  • Analysis of issues to be explored during the site visit.
  • Documentation of the site visit team’s findings and recommendations.
  • Submission of the site visit findings and recommendations to the oversight committee.
  • Ensure that all oversight committee members are informed about Global Fund oversight policies, guidelines and tools.
  • Develop minutes of oversight committee meetings, including recommendations provided and actions agreed.
  • Track CCM decisions and actions based on the oversight committee’s recommendations.
  • Carry out additional tasks under this operational area as requested by the CCM chair.

Operational Area 3: Facilitate and support analytical data-driven discussions and decisions

  • Synthesize and analyze relevant information from different sources to support data-driven discussions of the CCM and its committees.
  • Analyze data and triangulate with site visit reports to identify critical implementation and risk mitigation challenges of PRs.
  • Summarize critical grant implementation issues and present them to the oversight committee using the available formats/tools
  • Ensure that all key processes are driven by strategic information drawn from in-country sources and Global Fund-specific-supported interventions.
  • Work with the Global Fund Country Team, PRs, and the oversight committee to hold and maintain ongoing data-driven dialogue for grant performance purposes. The data-driven dialogue includes the identification and analysis of key financial, programmatic, management and risk-related issues/information contained in PR reporting tools and/or available oversight tools. An important aspect of the analysis is the assessment of the consistency of financial and programmatic data as well as the potential effect of identified risks on grant performance and on national program performance.
  • Support the CCM (through the oversight committee) to actively oversee and manage risks, by ensuring that they are adequately identified and mitigated. This includes taking part in the development of risk assurance planning and validation processes.
  • Support the oversight committee in tracking the status of co-financing commitments using available tools or procedures.
  • Oversee timely and accurate updates of reporting tools (e.g. dashboards, where these exist) and support the oversight committee presentations to the CCM.
  • Ensure that information from community-based monitoring initiatives (where these exist in the country) is considered and incorporated in the oversight assessments and reports.

Key Performance Metrics

  1. Quarterly tracking and reporting on the absorption of resources available for oversight within the CCM funding agreement.
  2. Timely submission of analysis/technical summaries/completed oversight tools to support the oversight committee meetings. At least five working days before each meeting is considered best practice.
