CONSULTANCY SERVICES FOR CAPACITY BUILDING AND ORGANISATIONAL STRENGHTHENING FOR NEIGHBOURHOOD POLICING
REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
The Government of Suriname (GOS) has received for financing from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) towards the cost of financing the Neighbourhood Policing Project and intends to apply a portion of the proceeds of this financing to eligible payments under a contract for which this invitation is issued. Payments by CDB will be made only at the request of GOS and upon approval by CDB, and will be subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of the Grant Agreement. The Grant Agreement prohibits withdrawal from the financing account for the purpose of any payment to persons or entities, or for any import of goods, if such payment or import, to the knowledge of CDB, is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations. No party other than GOS shall derive any rights from the Grant Agreement or have any claim to the proceeds of the Financing.
The Project Management Working Group (PMWG), the Executing Agency, now wishes to procure consultancy services for the design and supervision of Neighbourhood Policing.
The objective of the consultancy is to develop curricula and training materials for the training of Neighbourhood Police Officers (NPOs) for the Neighbourhood Policing Programme (NPP) in Suriname, develop training material to train Supervisors of the programme and Neighbourhood Watch Groups (NWGs), to revise the job description of NPOs, and to develop a Gender-responsive Operations and Procedural Manual to guide the operation of the programme. A stakeholder analysis and engagement plan will also be developed to provide a framework for deepened and more meaningful engagement of all stakeholders at the community level. The curricula and materials are expected to provide practical direction to NPOs in the execution of their duties. This will facilitate the certification of trainers and NPOs and lay the foundation for the enhancement of the level of operational efficiency in programme. The duration of the assignment is expected to be for a period of six to twelve months.
The PMWG, the Executing Agency, now invites interested eligible consulting firms to submit Expressions of Interest for the provision of these consultancy services.
