Expression Of Interest For Consultancy Services For The Review, Design And Specification Of Permits Issuing Systemfor The Department Of Immigration MINISTRY OF INDUSTRY AND TRADE AGRICULTURE SECTORWIDE APPROACH SUPPORTPROJECT MULTIDONOR TRUSTFUND EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FOR CONSULTANCYSERVICES FOR THE REVIEW,DESIGN AND SPECIFICATION OF PERMITS ISSUING SYSTEM FOR THE DEPARTMENTOFIMMIGRATION 1.          BACKGROUND Agriculture is one of thekey priority areas identified in theMalawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDS II) and the Economic Recovery Plan to ensure sustainable growth. The goal within theMGDS II is to increase agricultural productivity and diversification, thereby increasing the agriculture sector's contribution tosustainable economic growth. An efficient agricultural market is essential for the development of the agricultural sector.Byproviding outlets and incentives for increased production, the marketing system contributes greatly to the commercialization ofsubsistence farmers. Furthermore, the Doing Business environment within which agricultural markets operate has a fundamental effecton the functioning of the agricultural marketing system. Doing Business reforms can play an important role in making the marketingsystem more effective andefficient by removing unnecessary restrictions and by establishing a sound framework for commercialtransactions to reduce uncertainty in the market. Recognising the importance of agriculture, the Government ofMalawi is implementing the Agricultural Sector Wide Approach (ASWAp). ASWAp is a single comprehensive programme and budgetframework for investments across the agriculture sector.  The programme is implementedthrough the Agricultural Sector Wide Approach Support Project (ASWAp-SP), which is funded by several donors and developmentpartners who have established a Multi Donor Trust Fund (MTDF) through the World Bank. These donors include EU, Norway, DFID, IrishAid, FICA and USAID. One of the focus areas ofthe programme is to improve theagricultural business enabling environment in support of agricultural diversification, a more market oriented agriculture andintegration into agricultural value chains and regional markets. Under the coordination of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, theproject is intended to finance consultancies and training required to facilitate legal and regulatory reforms and otheractivitiesaimed at improving the business environment and agricultural commercialization. One of the important areas affecting the agribusinessenvironment and agricultural commercialization in Malawi is the lengthy and costly process of obtaining Business Residence Permits(BRPs) and Temporary Employment Permits (TEPs). Most foreign investors struggle to obtain BRPs and TEPs partly because there islittle automation in the system and the records are still manual.

Improvement of the system will enable investors in the agricultural sector to settle in quickly and also to bringin expertise that is currently lacking in the sector. In view of this ASWAP-SP is seeking the services of companyor group of consultants with expertskills in permits issuing and development to assist the Department ofImmigration (DOI) in thedevelopment and implementation of an automation program that will see the introduction of a computerized permits platform, aimed atimproving the Department's operations in the delivery of its permits responsibilities. 2.         OBJECTIVES OF THE CONSULTANCY /ASSIGNMENT The general objective of the assignment is to help the officeof the Chief Immigration Officer (CIO) undertake a comprehensive review of permits issuance processes and procedures with a view toimprove efficiency in the delivery of permits-processing services.  The goal is toenable Malawi to have an efficient, effective and sustainable system in place for the issuance, processing, monitoring and controlof permits.  It is expected that the accomplishment of this assignment will be guidedby the following outcomes: ?           Reduction in the number of days to issue business residencepermits, temporary employment permits and permanentresidence permits through reducing time and cost of compliance with permitsprocessing procedures; ?           Improvement in  the efficiency of permits processing services through simplifying and streamliningprocedures for issuance and control of permits, and automating the immigration permit registryfunction; ideally making the process of issuance and monitoring more efficient and equitable; 3.         NEED FORCONSULTANCY In view of the above objectives and the impendingintroduction of an automated permits-processing system, there is need to prepare the DOI for the reforms and automation of thepermits-processing services in order to streamline the processes that clients or stakeholders must comply with when processing apermit.
