Overview :

Scope of Services 

Under the supervision of the LDC Investment Platform’s TA Facility Manager, and in close collaboration with other UNCDF and LDCIP colleagues, the consulting firms will specifically:

  • Assist UNCDF in the execution of its technical assistance transactions including:
    • Conducting TA needs assessments using UNCDF’s tools;
    • Providing business advisory services and monitoring business development assignments in line with terms of reference that will be defined for each assignment or TA project.
  • Assist in providing independent advisory services for selected proposed assignment (investment or TA opportunities) and deal execution; this could also include assigning individual experts for investment or TA committees’ representation for example.
  • Provide recommendations to UNCDF on how to improve future assignments or TA projects design, implementation and monitoring based on the TA implementation process they are in charge of;
  • Develop and publish knowledge management products (with multiple formats of learning including, but not limited to, solution articles or FAQs, white papers, “wiki-TA”, tutorials, videos/photos, troubleshooting guide, etc.)  and contribute to UNCDF’s work related to policy recommendations based on the transactional work. It will be important to continuously build new knowledge from providing business development services in different geographies and thematic areas and be able to share that knowledge with UNCDF’s constituency. The building of knowledge, mainly through the TA transactions (and the loans and guarantees), may lead to supporting UNCDF in shaping policy recommendations for decision makers, and contribute to the advisory support continuous improvement process.
