Consumer Protection Resident Advisor RESERVE BANK OF MALAWI FINANCIAL SECTOR TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE PROJECT (FSTAP) Country:                     Malawi Name of Project:        Financial Sector Technical Assistance Project (FSTAP) Consulting Services:   Consumer Protection ResidentAdvisor Credit No.                   4897 Mw Project ID No.             P122616 Date of Issue:              7th September,2015 EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FOR CONSUMER PROTECTION RESIDENTADVISOR 1.     ThisInvitation follows the General Procurement Notice for this Project that appeared in Development Business, of March 29th,2012. 2.     The Government of the Republic of Malawi has received financing from the InternationalDevelopment Association (IDA) of the World Banktoward the cost of the Financial SectorTechnical Assistance Project (FSTAP), and intends to apply part of the proceeds for the services of Consumer Protection Resident Advisor. The Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM) intends to applypart of the proceeds of this credit to payments under the Contract for consultingservices for Consumer ProtectionResident Advisor. 3.     Background TheGovernment of Malawi (GoM) recognizes the vital role that the Financial Sector plays in the social economic development of thecountry. While significant progress in the regulatory framework has been made, the formal financial sector in Malawi remains small,concentrated and services a narrow clientele. The Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM), on behalf of the GoM has taken a leading role inthe development of a policy and institutional framework for the development of the financial sector. A keyintervention in these reforms is the implementation of the five-year Financial Sector Technical Assistance Project (FSTAP), whichthe GoM is financing with a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) of the World Bank. The project aims atincreasing access to financial servicesand products by the population of Malawi. A keypillar of the FSTAP is to strengthen the legal, regulatory, and supervisory framework for financial consumer protection, and toimprove the monitoring, coordination, and quality of financial capability enhancing programs. Activities under this component arebased on the recognition that an effective and well-enforced financial consumer protection and financial capability framework,which engenders trust and confidence in the financial sector, helps ensure that financial inclusion has positive impacts onhouseholds, firms, and the broader financial sector and economy. This is because, while increased access can result in significanteconomic and societal benefits and enhance financial stability, it can be neutral or even harmful, if consumers are not able to:(i) exercise their rights as consumers; (ii) select the financial products that suit them best; and (iii) be protected frommis-selling, fraud, and other market abuses. An effective framework for market conduct and consumer protection needs to be builtupon five main pillars: (i) a comprehensive regulatory framework covering areas such as equitable and fair treatment of consumers,disclosure and transparency, responsible business conduct, protection of consumer data and privacy, and protection against frauds;(ii) effective institutional arrangements ensuring independence, cooperation, coordination and accountability; (iii) risk-basedsupervision and credible enforcement; (iv) effective complaints handling and redress mechanisms; and (v) financial capability andawareness. Effective risk-based market supervision must ensure that the supervised entities follow the requirements of the legal andregulatory framework (compliance) and that scarce supervisory resources arespent efficiently on activities that bestreflect the supervisor's knowledge of the market as well as of existing and emerging risks (risks). Further, effective marketconduct supervision needs to make use of the traditional supervisory tools (e.g. onsite and offsite examinations) as well as marketconduct specific tools such as mystery shopping, collection and assessment of consumer complaints, consumer surveys andfocusgroups. Independent market conduct supervision as an activity separate from prudential supervision is still relatively new. One ofthe key challenges faced by supervisors in different countries is how toidentify and measure market conduct risks at both the macroand microlevel. Market conduct supervision is predominantly focused on consumer relationships and thus risk assessment is concernedwith the impact that any violation of law committed by a financial institution may have on consumer(s). This creates new challengespreviously unknown to prudential supervisors concerned mainly with the impact of law violations on institutions' liquidity andsolvency. Moreover, while prudential rules (and thus supervision) are quantitative in nature (e.g. capital and provisioningrequirements), market conduct rules are more qualitative in nature (e.g. fair treatment of clients and advice requirements).Compliance and the relevant risks are thus more difficult to measurein a market conduct context, as is the appropriate targeting ofsupervisory activities. 4.     Objectives of the consultancy The consultant providing theservices the subject of these Terms of Reference (Resident Advisor) will work in close collaboration with the Director of the Microfinance and Capital MarketsSupervision Department in the RBM (Department).

The Ministry of Finance intends to apply part of the proceeds of this credit to payments under the Contract for a consultant to conduct aDiagnostic Study on the Establishment of a Long Term Finance Guarantee Scheme. 3.     Background Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning and Development together withthe Reserve Bankof Malawi is implementing Financial Sector TechnicalAssistance Project (FSTAP) with development assistance from the WorldBank. Theproject aims at increasing access to finance for the currently unbanked, but bankable Malawi population. Ministry of Finance isimplementing component four of the FSTAP Project Appraisal Document (PAD) which is Financial Sector Policy and Governance Capacityand Long-term Finance. The component is supporting the establishment of a policy framework and the legal andinstitutional infrastructure to: facilitate the provision of long term finance; strengthen the Government's capacity to formulateand implement policies which support long term financing; develop an infrastructure financing framework; and, to carry out diagnostic studies to identify shortand medium term solutions to the long term financing challenge in Malawi. In order to identify short and medium term solutions to the long term financingchallenge in Malawi, Government considers a Diagnostic Study on the Establishment of "Long Term Finance Guarantee Scheme" to be oneof the solutions. The study will address long term finance constraints the country faces. Financing in Malawi is predominantlyshort-term, with over 80 percent of the loans having a maturity of less than three months and these are mostly short terminstruments like Treasury Bills. Products with longer maturities, like investment loans and mortgages are limited and are availableat adjustable rate. The problem of long term financing is severe especially among the SMEs. Government therefore intends toascertain whether Malawi's businesses would benefitfrom the establishment of a long term finance guaranteescheme. 4.    Purpose The Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning andDevelopment invites proposalsfrom consultants with relevant research experience and expertise to conduct a Diagnostic Study onEstablishment of Long Term Finance Guarantee Scheme. The scope of work is provided in the terms of referencebelow. 5.    Objectives Considering that a Long Term Finance Guarantee Schemewill be a new service among the Country's financial institutions, a feasibility/diagnostic study about its applicability isimperative. The study will aim at: - 3.1  Identifying the pros and cons ofestablishing the Scheme in view of the financial and macroeconomic environment of Malawi; 3.2  Assessing the demand for acommercially viable, professionally and independently managed risk sharing scheme; 3.3  Assessing private sector interestto invest in a guarantee scheme; and 3.4  Explore various options pertainingto funding, structure, management arrangements, business model (e.g. pricing) eligibility criteria for participating financialinstitutions, and regulatory framework 6.    Scope of work Access to longterm finance has proved to be a challenge in Malawi. The financial system is dominated by banks whose lending is typically shortterm (with maturity of less than one year). The capital market remains shallow and illiquidto effectively facilitate allocation of long term capital. However, investors need long term finance to finance investments whichare critical for their growth and long term development of the country. By the nature of their maturity, long term finance instruments are considered riskyand they require risk pooling. Establishment of a Long Term Finance Guarantee Scheme serving both the private and publicinstitutions/individuals would help fill this gap of making long term finance available to businesses in the context of prevailingdevelopment goals. Thus a detailed study on the applicability of the scheme will help to answer several questions. The study should: - 4.1           Asses the feasibility and viability of such a Long Term Finance GuaranteeScheme 4.2           Determine the amount of investments that will be required for the schemepertaining to funding, structure, management and governance arrangements, and business model; 4.3           Develop the eligibility criteria for participating institutions, andregulatory framework of the scheme; 4.4           Conduct a market analysis regarding the establishment of the scheme,assess the desirability of the private sector to invest in the scheme including proposed levels ofownership/involvement; 4.5           Incorporate lessons from other countries, especially within Africa andthe costs governments had to bear in enabling the availability of suchadditional credit; 4.6           Identifying the pros and cons of establishing a Long Term FinanceGuarantee Scheme in the light of financial and macroeconomic environment ofMalawi 4.7           Assess the demand for a commercially viable, professionally andindependently managed risk sharing scheme; 4.8           Explore various options pertaining to funding, structure, managementarrangements, business model (e.g. pricing); 4.9           Identify and prioritize sectors which would be targeted by the scheme forgreatest impact; 4.10         Asses the risks (including economic, political social and operational) ofestablishing the scheme and determine mitigation measures; 4.11    Propose an entry and exit strategy of government investment in thescheme; and 4.12     Makerecommendations to Government on the establishment of the scheme.

While significant progress in the regulatory framework has been made,the formal financial sector in Malawi remains small, concentrated and services a narrow clientele. A key intervention is the implementation of the five-yearFinancial Sector Technical Assistance Project (FSTAP), which the GoM is financing with a credit from the International DevelopmentAssociation (IDA) of the World Bank. The project aims at increasing access to finance for the currently unbanked but bankablepopulation of Malawi.  The project's primaryend-beneficiaries will be the financially excluded population. The RBM intends to usepart of the proceeds of the credit to make eligible payments for the services of an individual as a technical assistance expert toassess the feasibility of establishing a centralised database system to be used by the Registrar of Financial Institutions (theRegistrar) in the registration of employees andemployers participating in the national pension scheme as part of enforcing andmonitoring compliance with the Pension Act 2010. The GoM introduced amandatory national pension scheme in which all employers, except those duly exempted, are requiredto place employees on pension.Currently, it is estimated that about 200,000 employees from the private sector are members of the national pension scheme withscope to increase as enforcement of the mandatory law expands. The scheme is primarily designed as a defined contribution schemebut defined benefit funds are also permitted. The law provides members with benefit portability rights, giving members the righttochoose a pension scheme depending on preference. Employees changing jobs are also expected to move with their pension benefits.However, considering that there is currently no centralized collection or administration system, registration criteria in a pensionfund is dependent on the system used by the administrator of the pension fund and as suchthere is no unique identification formembers that are switching between pension funds. The Registrar therefore wishes to explore how to enforce and monitor complianceby employers through the system as well as assist in tracking member movements, trends in benefits payments, unclaimed retirementsavings and minimising the existence of multiple accounts - including the possibility of generating unique personal identificationnumbers to both employers and employees. 4.     Objectives The major objective ofthe assignment is to carryout a feasibility study for the establishment of a centralized national pension database (CNPD) system.The feasibility study will assist the Reserve Bank of Malawi, as a Registrar to determine a detailed schedule of requirement forpossible establishment of a centralized national pension database (CNPD) system, based on the existing infrastructure and anyfuture requirement in Malawi. 5.     Scope of the Assignment The Scopeof the assignment shall include analysis of existing approaches, systems, and database being used by employers, services providers,and government agencies.

Malawi - MALAWI | Published February 20, 2017  -  Deadline March 8, 2017

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Malawi is assisting the Government of Malawi in the establishment of a National Identification and Registration System (NRIS). In the course of 2017 up to 9 million eligible Malawians are expected to be registered and issued with a biometrically secure National Identity Card (NIC). The expected results of this multi-donor Project are to: design, establish and manage the necessary systems, infrastructure and equipment for the National Registration and Identity system, employing biometrically secure Smartcards; supervise the mass registration for all eligible Malawians (an estimated 9 million) within the country by December 2017; transition the system to a continuous registration model in 2018 and to develop the capacity and systems of NRB to maintain and operate the system; provide an interface to other public and private sector systems that allow for appropriate data sharing within a legal framework that complies with international principles and standards for the right to privacy and data protection; and to ensure the effective management of the Project. To achieve this goal a mass registration exercise is planned to be undertaken across five phases from May to December, 2017. During each phase that covers a number of Malawi’s 28 Districts, spread over three regions, 2000 registration teams (composed of 2 Registration Officers (ROs) each for a total of 4,000) are expected to be deployed with 200 Supervisors to register eligible Malawians. In this context, UNDP Malawi, invites suitably qualified professional service providers with a proven track record in technical human resources and financial management. The company is required to identify, recruit, administer and manage the payroll activities for the Registration Officer(RO)s and Supervisors throughout the mass registration exercise from April to December 2017.

CONDUCT AN ASSESSMENT OF PUBLIC FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT (PFM) SYSTEM IN MALAWI - HACT Macro Assessment

United Nations Resident Coordinator's Office | Published June 17, 2015  -  Deadline July 1, 2015

REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS (RFP) SELECTION OF A CONSULTING FIRM TO UNDERTAKE AN ASSESSMENT OF PUBLIC FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT (PFM) SYSTEM IN MALAWI PROCUREMENT REF: UNDP/MWI10/RFP/007/2015 BACKGROUND Pursuant to United Nations General Assembly Resolution 56/201 on the triennial policy review of operational activities for development of the United Nations system, the Harmonized Approach to Cash Transfers (HACT) framework was first adopted in 2005 by UNDP, UNICEF and UNFPA. In Malawi, HACT has been implemented since 1 January 2008 and is coordinated by the HACT Working Group representing 7 UN Agencies namely: FAO, UNAIDS, UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, WFP and UNW. The HACT framework represents a common operational (harmonized) framework for transferring cash to government and non‑governmental Implementing Partners (IPs), irrespective of whether these partners work with one or multiple United Nation agencies. The objective of the HACT framework is to support a closer alignment of development aid with national priorities and to strengthen national capacities for management and accountability, with the ultimate objective of gradually shifting to national systems. It is understood that ‘harmonized’ in the context of the HACT framework refers to agencies implementing a common operational framework using the same, consistent, standardized approach and tools. To ensure adequate awareness of the Public Financial Management (PFM) environment within which agencies provide cash transfers to IPs, a desk review of assessments of the PFM system will be conducted. In the HACT framework PFM is broadly defined to include a range of considerations for operating in the country. It is not limited solely to the financial environment but also includes national procurement capacity, exchange rate volatility, presence of informal/black markets, etc. This assessment is called a macro assessment. OVERALL CONSULTANCY OBJECTIVE The two primary outputs of the macro assessment are: An outline of the risks related to use of the PFM for cash transfers within the country by governmental IPs, as well as for non-governmental IPs; and A determination on whether the government’s supreme audit institution (SAI) has the capacity to undertake scheduled and special audits of government IPs. METHOD OF APPLICATION Interested consultancy firms should access the detailed RFP including Terms of Reference Either: via UNDP website under this link; http://www.ungm.org/tender notices Or E-mail request to: procurement.mw@undp.org. PROPOSAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Proposals can also be submitted online on procurement.mw@undp.org. The proposal submission deadline shall be July, 1st 2015, Time: 1200HRS
