Detailed description of project Back
The TDCA-F finance agreement was signed in February 2009. The delay in the appointment of a PMU, as well as poor take-up of the programme in government, has the result that funds may be returned to Brussels due to lack of time to expend them. Despite the challenges in starting the programme, a number of departments have expressed interest in accessing grants through the programme. This interest has led National Treasury to indicate that they will, exceptionally, leas the programme implementation on the SA government side. DIRCO will provide political guidance.
The purpose of the assignment is to expedite the implementation of the programme by providing a resource to act as interim project management support until the appointment and establishment of the technical assistance team.
The primary focus of the assistance is the setting up of the institutional framework for programme implementation, and managing the application for, award of and accessing of resources for grants as envisaged under the finance agreement.
