Internews is seeking a short-term consultant to support our efforts in assessing certain humanitarian donor requirements. The humanitarian donors this consultant is expected to evaluate are: WHO; UNHCR; UNICEF; UNDP; UFPA; ICSP; and IOM. Internews is interested in pursuing more funds from these donors, but needs to assess potential gaps in its current systems, processes, and capacity before pursuing funding.
This is a remote-first, short-term consultancy. We anticipate that the scope will require approximately 10 working days to complete. Candidates based anywhere in the Untied States will be considered.
SCOPE OF WORK
In order to conduct this assessment, the short-term consultant will compile a report that explains each donor’s requirements and how other implementers comply with these requirements. Internews has already identified key areas in which these funders’ requirements differ from the US Government Rules and Regulations that it would like to better understand. The areas identified are:
- Financial Reporting Requirements
- Auditing Requirements
- Flexibility/inflexibility in program implementation delivery timelines
- Indirect/NICRA rate cost recovery
- HQ staff cost recovery
- Pre-award due diligence process
- Asset disposition and asset threshold
Internews would also like the consultant to highlight any other areas not identified above in which these funders may differ from the US Government.
- A report that outlines each funder’s requirements by areas listed above, and any others identified by the consultant, to be accompanied by suggestions on systems or processes that other implementers use to comply with these requirements.
- 7-15 years of experience with financial, grant, and/or audit management of WHO, UNHCR, UNICEF, UNDP, UFPA, ICSP, and IOM funded projects
- Experience working with midsize INGOs
- Familiarity with USAID- or USDOS-funded projected requirements
- English proficiency
