The HIV/AIDS Department of WHO is finalizing and rolling out the consolidated HIV Strategic Information (SI) guide for the health sector, containing all aspects of SI into one document, including core data to generate from routine M&E systems, surveillance activities, HIVDR and toxicity monitoring. These components have formed a global set of  10 SI indicators, 50 national and additional indicators for global, regional and country guide. Information needs along the cascade of HIV care were reviewed, and new international guidance has been developed, especially in the area of monitoring linkages from diagnosis to HIV care, monitoring implications of the shift to B+/B under different service delivery scenarios, emphasis on retention and adherence, and monitoring impact. Generic tools (registers, monthly reporting forms, etc.) will also be updated, and the most efficient way to collect this information (e.g. some data may only need to be extracted and reported once a year to the national level, but in a routine annual reporting form; some data may be best collected through a survey of representative number of facilities) will also be reviewed. Once the consolidated HIV Strategic Information guide is published, it will be disseminated with specific regional and country support for implementation. Standard materials and PPTs would facilitate the dissemination of the consolidated M&E guide as well as other M&E related documents. In addition, the SIP unit (Strategic Information and Planning unit) of the Department of HIV of WHO is also responsible for setting up the structure and processes for EMTCT validation.  This consultancy will also support EMTCT validation activities, including support for PMTCT and other data management related to the SI guide. Purpose of this assignment: The main objective of this consultancy is to provide support to roll out the Consolidated Strategic Information Guide and the EMTCT Validation process, as well as to provide data management support. Scope of Work: The consultant will work under the guidance of the SIP Technical Officer, and under supervision of the SIP Coordinator.

PROVISION OF AUDIT SERVICES FOR PILLAR ASSESSMENT FOR THE WMO

World Meteorological Organization | Published July 20, 2015  -  Deadline August 19, 2015
cpvs

WMO is seeking a supplier to provide audit services for Pillar Assessment. Article 58 of the Financial Regulation ('FR') applicable to the General Budget of the European Union ('EU') sets out the methods of implementation of the budget including 'indirect management'. Under indirect management the Commission can entrust budget implementation tasks to the countries, organisations and bodies (further referred to as 'Entities') indicated in Article 58 of the FR. The following Entities may be concerned: - Third countries or the bodies they have designated. E.g. Ministry of Interior, Kingdom of Cambodia; - International organisations and their agencies. E.g.: UNDP (United Nations development Programme); - Public law bodies. E.g.: DFID, KfW; - Bodies governed by private law with a public service mission to the extent that they provide adequate financial guarantees. E.g.: British Council. These Entities shall guarantee a level of protection of the financial interests of the EU equivalent to that required under the FR when they manage EU funds. They must meet requirements with regard to seven 'Pillars' relating to the internal control system, the accounting system, an independent external audit and rules and procedures for providing financing from EU funds through grants, procurement and financial instruments and Sub-Delegation. Hence, Entities wishing to work with EU funds under the indirect management mode must therefore be made subject to a comprehensive Pillar Assessment. Based on the results of the Pillar Assessment the Commission will decide whether it can entrust budget implementation tasks to the Entity and whether it can conclude specific agreements (i.e. Indirect Management Delegation Agreements) with the Entity.
