International Individual Consultant: Change Management Advisor Request for Expressions of Interest (REoI) For International Individual Consultant: Change Management Advisor (Reference # MRRD/CMU/IC01) Country:                  Afghanistan Ministry:              Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation &Development (MRRD) Type:                    International Individual Consultant Project ID:           P 117103 NSP(MRRD/Change Management) Grant#:               AF098459-AF IssueDate:           05th January 2015 Closing Date:        19th January 2015 I.          General Introduction: MRRD's ultimate goal is to reduce povertyin the rural areas of Afghanistan, wherethree-quarters of the Afghanpopulation live, many of them in severe poverty. Through its actions,MRRD aims to pave the way forother actors, including Government, civil society and the private sector, to complement its endeavours. The development context in which MRRD works is set out in the Afghanistan NationalDevelopment Strategy (ANDS),expanded in the Agriculture and Rural Development Sector Strategy (ARDSS), and expressed inprogrammatic terms through four National Priority Programs (NPPs) in which the Ministry is directly involved via the Agricultureand Rural Development (ARD) Cluster of Government ministries (of which the MRRD Minister is Co-ordinator). To assist the Ministry in responding to this context, a Strategic Intent document hasbeen agreed, setting out the Ministry's approaches to community-level governance, poverty reduction and socio-economic growth, andidentifying focal areas of work and objectives. Linked to this, a Change Management Plan has been drafted and agreed and is underpartial implementation. II. Change Management within theMRRD To respond to the need to provide sustainable services, MRRD recognises the need to moveaway from the programmatic operational mode to mainstreaming its core functions within its directorates and field offices. Thiswill bring in both efficiency and effectiveness in the long run, and help reduce the reliance on contract staff and transform MRRDto a ministry operated and managed by its civil servants. The latter can only be achieved by investing in skills development of theexisting and possibly new civil servants through a Change Management process and bringing contract staff onto the "tashkeel"(Afghan civil service) through the defined 'Capacity Building for Results (CBR)' process initiated by the WorldBank. The Change Management Plan of MRRD aims to transform the Ministry directorates,departments and field units to operate more efficiently, cost-effectively and with greater transparency. The main objective ofthis reform process is to strengthen the capacity of MRRD Directorates/Departments through: (a) systems development; (b)capacity building and (c) technical assistance (TA), which will enable them take over the functions presently performed bytheindividual MRRD Programs. This shift is even more crucial going forward in that the five large Programs within the MRRD will bestreamlinedinto one Program in the short to medium term. The implementation of the change managementplan therefore involvean overarching organizational and functional review of the entire ministry including all the Directorates,Departments, Programs, Provincial Rural Rehabilitation and Development Directorates (PRRDs) and the MRRD's current and futuredistrict-level presence. This will ensure a collaborative approach with a unified environment between the Directorates andPrograms.  In addition, the Change Management  Plan envisages to devolve planning, budgeting and financial authority from the centre to the PRRDs. Thedelegation of authority will require policy, procedure and regulatory changes, particularly with regardsto the delegated planning,budgeting and financial authority given toPRRDs. In delivering this change, the MRRD team will actively seek cross-Governmentsupport and agreement to enable these necessary and far-reaching changes. In 2010, the leadership of the Ministry established a Change Management Unit toco-ordinate the reform process.The aim was to  deliver targeted institutional and humancapacity building activities, so as toachieve sustainable rural development outcomes  and reduce the cost of service delivery through  mainstreaming ofprograms activities into the  core functions of the MRRD's directorates anddepartments. The reform process is expected to significantly increase the capacity of civil servants in MRRD.

Brief on the Telecommunications Sector Growth of Afghanistan: In July 2003, two licenses for GSM Services (in 900MHz) were issued to AfghanWireless Communications Company (AWCC) and Telecom Development Company Afghanistan (Roshan).  Pursuant to the Policy, they were provided a duopoly on GSM Services until the end of 2005.Based on the fact that the three year term of thetwo original licenses was about to come to an end, on 21 May 2005, AfghanistanTelecommunications Regulatory Authority(ATRA) officially launched an international competitive tender for two additional licensesfor GSM Services (and any other services in the assigned 900 and 1800 MHz bands). As a result, two additional GSM licenses wereissued in May 2006, one to MTN and another to Etisalat. There are about 63 ISPs operating in Afghanistan,providing Internet Services based on different Technologies and the Media. These are in addition to the four GSM Operators and oneCDMA Operator (Afghan Telecom (AFTEL)), who also provide Internet Services in the Country. The former Telecommunication Department of theMinistry of Communications of Afghanistan was taken out of the Ministry of Communications and became a government ownedTelecommunications Company which also received a Unified Services license from ATRA in 2005. It was named Afghan Telecom (AFTEL).AFTEL also inherited Fixed Line and Fiber Optic networks. In addition, AFTEL also provides Internet services through its fixedlinefacilities as well as through WiMAX frequencies allocated to it by ATRA. Since private entry into the Telecom market in 2003,the telecom sector in Afghanistan has grown at a remarkable rate and now approximately 18 million Afghanistan businesses,government entities and consumers have mobile telephone service and over one million users have Internet services. And, the currentinstallation of an AFTEL Fiber Optic ring throughout Afghanistan is connecting Afghanistan with the rest of the World at lowercosts for voice and data services. Now, that the basic needs of the people in Afghanistan have been fulfilled, MCIT and ATRA havealsoissued 3G (Third Generation) and Broadband Wireless Services Licenses. The Afghanistan Telecommunications RegulatoryAuthority (ATRA) was establishedin 2006 for issuance of licenses, monitoring of quality of services provided by the licensees andtaking measures towards developing the sector by encouraging private sector investments. Activities of ATRA aremainly based on theTelecom policy developed and adopted by the Ministry of Communications and IT on 03 July, 2003, with the vision to develop theTelecom and Internet sector in order to provide affordable andquality services to the citizens of Afghanistan on a nationwidebasis. Afghan Telecom (AFTEL) is a Telecom Operator, 100 %owned by Ministry of Communications and IT (MCIT). It is a Government owned Corporation and planned to be privatized in due courseof time. In 2006, Optical Fiber Cable Ring Project was funded by the Government from the Core DevelopmentBudget, to establish anOFC Ring of 3100 Kms and again in 2010, another 500 Kms OFC Route has been funded under Core Development Budget of MCIT. AFTEL isthe only Operator in Afghanistan currently permitted toown the OFC based Backbone of the Country. The Company is selling InternetBandwidth by bringing the same from neighboring Countries (Pakistan, Iran, Tajakistan and Uzbekistan) through OFC Backbone. TelecomOperators and ISPs are hiring the OFC based Internet Capacities and the Fiber Capacities from Afghan Telecom. . Under the World Bank funded ICT Sector DevelopmentProject as approved in May,2011, up to 27 Million USD will be spent to connect 05 Provinces and 13 Districts to the existing OFCRing of MCIT/Afghan Telecom. Three Provincial Capitals and 10 District Headquarters will be connected on the Central Route of theCountry with the existing OFC Ring of Afghanistan. Two Provincial Capitals and 03 District Headquarters will be connected on theNorth-Eastern Route of the Country with the existing OFC Ring of Afghanistan. Estimated OFC Route that will be commissioned is1,000 Kms ( About 760 Kms on the Central Axis and 240 Kms on the N-E Axis) connecting a total of 18 Communication Nodes(13 on theCentral Axis and 05 on N-E Axis).
