|Overview : |
Parliament of Malawi is an Arm of Government responsible for legislative, oversight and representative functions in an effort to promote good governance in the country.
In order to effectively deliver on its mandate, Parliament of Malawi is guided by 5-year Strategic Plans. The current Strategic Plan covers the period July 2015 to June 2020. In light of this, Parliament is expected to develop a successor Strategic Plan to cover the period, July 2020- June 2025.
The 2020-2025 Strategic Plan will be a link between the National Development Strategy, the SDG-aligned Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDS III), District Development Plans and the activities and programmes carried out by the Parliament of Malawi.It shall further articulate the alignment of Parliament of Malawi’s programmes to other regional and international development frameworks including: Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and African Union Agenda 2063. The Plan will also align with agreements that Parliament of Malawi enter into, with Inter-Parliamentary Organisations (IPOs).
More importantly, the 2020-25 Strategic Plan will be the benchmark against which Parliament of Malawi will measure progress towards attainment of its objectives that are in line with its legal mandate.More to this, it will be the basis for formulation of subsequent annual workplans, budgets and performance targets for all functional units within the institution.
It is against this background that UNDP through the Joint Annual Work Plan on UN Support to Parliament, is seeking to engage the services of a National Consultant who will collaborate with an International Consultant hired by AFIDEP to develop the 2020-2025 Parliament of Malawi Strategic Plan (SP).
