SECTION 2: TERMS OF REFERENCE

1.0 BACKGROUND

The Government of Jamaica (GOJ) outlined a policy for Public Sector Transformation including the

establishment of the Public Sector Transformation Implementation Unit (TIU) in January 2017 to spearhead

implementation. The vision of a transformed public sector is a modern public service that is fair, values

people, and delivers high quality services consistently.

The transformation programme is being funded by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) over six

years and aims to address quality, cost, and efficiency of public services in Jamaica. The programme is

being executed by the Office of the Prime Minister and has two main components: (1) Enhancing Quality

of Public Services; and (2) Enhancing Efficiency in Public Spending.

The programme focuses on five critical areas of service delivery in the first phase. These include: (i) the

introduction of shared corporate services (SCS) in eight operational areas; (ii) wage bill management to

reduce the wage bill to GDP ratio to nine percent; (iii) human resource management (HRM) transformation;

(iv) public sector efficiency and ICT; and (v) rationalisation of public bodies.

The challenges to be addressed are: (i) the underutilization of Information and Communication

Technologies (ICT) across the public sector; (ii) cumbersome processes to access public services; (iii) a

relatively large and expensive workforce; (iv) too many public bodies in existence and lack of adherence

to the accountability framework; and (v) limited capacity to implement public sector reform initiatives.

2.0 ROLE SUMMARY

The Financial Officer, under the direction of the Financial Specialist will be assigned financial

responsibility for supporting the effective, efficient and economical use of the TIU Project funds in the

fulfilment of its objectives and in pursuit of the implementation of the budget and loan, ensuring a high

standard of probity, propriety, regularity, transparency, accountability and value for money. The Financial

Officer Specialist is required to work closely with the Executive Director, Programme Manager, and

Procurement Specialist, and will mainly be responsible for:

 Maintaining appropriate financial and accounting systems and controls;

 Interfacing with facilitating ministries/agencies and international organizations;

 Assisting the Financial Specialist with monitoring Project activities to meet the stipulated Project

objectives, transparency and accountability requirements as they relate to the planned expenditure;

 Providing technical advice and assistance to the Financial Specialist and the Programme Manager as

required;

 Preparing progress, annual, special and other reports as necessary;

 Maintaining an adequate budget/expenditure tracking system.

3.0 SCOPE OF WORK

The scope of the work to be performed by the Financial Specialist will include:

 Maintaining adequate financial, accounting, and internal control systems to ensure the integrity,
