Detailed description of project Back
Burundi is updating the Education and Training Sector Development Plan (PSDEF) taking stock of all main education programmes to be implemented over the period 2011 – 2016 to ensure Quality Education for All. The PSDEF shows a clear wish to further elaborate an education sector approach. In order to finance the PSDEF, multiple technical and financing partners (AFD, Belgian and Luxembourg Cooperation, DfID) have agreed with the Burundi authorities to pool their financial support through a Common Education Fund (FCE).
The organisation of the disbursement of the FCE is based on the creation of a special budgetary allocation (BAS). A new manual with procedures for the FCE has been adopted by the national Party and the PTF. A planning and programming for 2011 on the basis of these new procedures has been approved in October 2010. The execution of the BAS/FDE will start in the budgetary year 2011 (Jan-Dec 2011), with a Programme of 12.4 Million Euros. At the same time a plan to strengthen the capacities has been elaborated to assist the MEBASE in the implementation of BAS/FCE 2011 and the preparation of the planning of the BAS/FCE 2012.
This contract covers the following capacity building actions:
Support to the financial execution and accounting (3 experts):
Support to the technical and financial follow-up of the FCE (Team Leader):
Support to the Planning for 2012/2013 (1 expert):
