Overview :

Pacific Islands countries (PICs) boast “big ocean” economies, with young and mobile populations and highly resilient and adaptative societies. Past and recent investments have however fallen short of developing diverse economies offering inclusive services and opportunities, resilient to external shocks and the increasing pace of climate disasters. While the scale of Pacific economies does not allow them to respond to all these challenges alone, public investment and revenues would gain from empowered officials accountable to keep basic service delivery and development priorities in mind while driving fiscal decisions.

The “Accountable Public Finances to serve Pacific people – Vaka Pasifika” project (hereafter Vaka Pasifika project) targets documented challenges in the oversight and accountability of public finance in the Pacific. It aims at providing a platform for Pacific experts, decision-makers and thinkers to design tailored solutions. These solutions can then be supported by the project through funding and technical assistance. The project also provides opportunities for civil society and the media to better understand and engage with public finance cycles and for governments (central/local) to consult and engage with citizens on the budget. The Vaka Pasifika project is funded by the European Union until 2026. The project builds on the results of the “Strengthening Public Finance Management and Governance in the Pacific” (PFM) project implemented between 2018 and 2022.

The Vaka Pasifika project is about to embark in a design process for a number of activities and there is a need to ensure that the activity design (led by professional facilitators) is informed by sounds experience of Pacific auditing. The consultancy seeks a few technical advisors to ensure the design process takes into account the reality of public audit in the Pacific.

One of the major assets of the Vaka Pasifika project is the Vaka Pasifika training, the training is available here: This training equips all our partners with basic knowledge required to get over the technical barrier of Public Finance. The aim is not to turn everyone into a PFM expert but to ensure some foundations are common to all the people we work with. This course is expected to constitute a basis for our work going forward in the coming five years and the consultant will be expected to deliver.
