Purpose and Scope of Assignment

 

 

The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) of the US Department of State is actively engaged in Kenya’s efforts to professionalize its national police service. INL supports three Kenyan entities (henceforth, the Entities) whose mandate is to bolster police accountability, through operational and technical assistance to the Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) of the National Police Service, the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA), and the National Police Service Commission (NPSC). The latter two bodies are civilian-staffed and provide external oversight of the police.

 

INL requires technical advisory and project management advisory services to strengthen and develop ICT systems for several ongoing and upcoming components in their program. The specific project objective for UNOPS is to provide INL/Kenya with ICT project management and advisory services, technical assistance and performance monitoring/evaluation against contracted deliverables.

 

The Project Manager is responsible for producing/reviewing the project initiation documents (PID) and all other background document, the Legal Agreement and for having a thorough understanding of the terms, conditions, and the respective roles and responsibilities of the partners/stakeholders to ensure the project’s products meet the business cases for UNOPS, the government client(s), and the funder. The Project Manager is also responsible for the overall management of project implementation and day-to-day operations (aligned with work plan) toward successful project completion.
