I.     BACKGROUND

 

The Decentralization and Local Development Support Programme (DLDSP) is a joint project of Local Development Directorates (LDD) of the Ministry of Interior (MOI) and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs (MOMA). The DLDSP is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The DLDSP provides support to the Government of Jordan for the design and implementation of decentralization reforms and the building of sub-national governance and administration capacity. It operates under the guidance of the Inter-Ministerial Committee for Decentralization and its Executive Committee (IMC).

 

The DLDSP, is providing technical support to the IMC to carry out the implementation of the decentralization reform to improve the legal framework, as well as organizational structures of governorates and municipalities; and to improve the competences of elected official and civil servants at national and local levels.

 

In April 2018, DLDSP fielded a Scoping Mission to outline how the decentralization reform process could be moved forward, after the approval of key ‘decentralization’ legislation in 2015, whose implementation had raised a political and developmental challenges. The mission made an assessment of the 2015 legislation and concluded that (i) its implementation should be carried out in a way that does not compromise the medium-term emergence of  developmental sub-national authorities and should be immediately combined with (ii) a renewed national debate on the vision and policy for decentralization in Jordan and (iii) a series of field-level policy and institutional experiments on how a developmental sub-national authorities system could actually work. All the three above lines of work could ideally be conceived as components of a national program to implement decentralization.

 

The mission unlocked additional perspectives and lines for the work of the DLDSP. The services required under the present contract are expected to contribute to the DLDSP’s implementation along the three lines of work indicated above.    

Technical and financial proposals along with CV & 3 references should be submitted, and without such will not be considered.
