VACANCY: TEAM LEADER

Background:

The Anti-Corruption Support to Sierra Leone programme aims to address the petty corruption that citizens encounter on a daily basis and the grand corruption which affects Sierra Leone’s progress out of poverty. The programme is supported by DFID through Coffey International’s (Coffey) London office. One of the key components of this programme is the development of the Pay No Bribe (PNB) reporting platform with the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) of Sierra Leone. Continued support to address grand corruption has been defined with the ACC to include two other components: citizen education and engagement; institutional strengthening.

The PNB Campaign is a Government of Sierra Leone (GoSL) initiative, led by the Office of the Chief of Staff and the ACC, in coordination with relevant Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).

The PNB platform is an innovative reporting mechanism for citizens to anonymously report incidents of petty corruption and bribery. PNB is designed to collect real time evidence on bribery and corruption in five key service sectors: Education, Electricity, Health, Police and Water. A sixth sector will most likely be included from October 2017. PNB provides a database on petty corruption and bribery trends that supports the work of the ACC and feeds into evidence-based policy decision making.

Following a successful review at the end of the inception phase the programme has moved into full implementation. In October 2017, the programme will expand into Kono district and thus be operational in 5 districts (Kenema, Bo, Bombali, Western Area, Kono). The programme will end December 2018, by which time it will have achieved key deliverables, including the handover of PNB management responsibility to the ACC and wider GoSL stakeholders.
