The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) has received financing from the African Development Fund in the form of a Grant towards the cost of implementation of the Statistical Capacity Building Program, Phase V (SCB V). The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) intends to apply a portion of the agreed amount for this grant to eligible consultants to undertake different assignments under the SCB V.

The project is implemented in all African Development Fund (ADF) eligible Member states, Regional Economic Communities and Statistical Training Centers.  The SCB program is the fifth (SCB-5) of ADF funded cycles for strengthening statistical capacity in Africa and is anchored on many years of accumulated practical experience and incremental value addition to the African Statistical System. The SCB-5 will be crucial for maintaining the momentum built on past gains whilst shielding against possible reversal of the gains made across the continent in recent years. The program will focus on the following components: Improving the availability and quality of economic statistics, including the measurement of the COVID-19 impact, Improving the quality and availability of Social Statistics and reporting on COVID-19, Data Collection, Management and Dissemination and Strategic Planning, Systems Development, Coordination and Training.

The Common market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) Secretariat now invites eligible candidates to apply for the consultancy assignment to provide consultancy on data quality assurance under the framework of the integration of International Comparison Program (ICP) operations in NSO. Interested consultants must provide information indicating that they are qualified to perform the services.
