Ministry of Interior
Demand for Good Governance (DFGG) Project

Position Title: National Procurement Coordinator
Classification: Contract position
Location: Project Coordination Office (PCO), Ministry of Interior
Reports to:
Project Manager and Project Director

I. Background

The Ministry of the Interior (MOI) is the Executing Agency for the World Bank funded
Demand for Good Governance Project (DFGG). The DFGG Project supports the governance
reform policies of the Royal Government of Cambodia. It is an exciting new project that will
support selected government institutions and civil society organizations to develop and
expand programs that promote good governance. Civil society organizations will be
encouraged to promote accountable and transparent government through partnership
approaches with state institutions and a competitive program of small grants. At the same
time, the DFGG project will support four state institutions to demonstrate innovative good
governance approaches, in partnership with civil society, that may generate lessons for wider
replication. The project hopes to encourage citizen demand or interest in governance issues
and to improve government responsiveness to feedback from the community.

The MOI established a Project Coordination Office (PCO) to support project preparation, and
plans to strengthen the capacity of the PCO through recruitment and training during the preimplementation
period. Government officers will be transferred into the PCO and key
positions will be filled by contracted professionals from outside of government. The PCO's
main role will be to manage the project and coordinate key activities among the participating
state institutions and civil society organisations. It will undertake centralised project
management and coordination functions in key areas of finance, procurement, monitoring and
evaluation, project reporting, learning, communications, human research management and
training. The government staff and contracted staff in the PCO will be supported by a range
of national and international technical advisors and consulting services in selected areas
where PCO capacity is weak and requires strengthening.
