Vacancy at ILO - International Consultant Road Master Planning, Sigli-Aceh

Vacancy No: JAKARTA/ 2012/010 Date:  22 March 2012
Position title: International Consultant Road Master Planning
Deadline for application: 02 April 2012
Project title: Creating Jobs: Capacity Building for Local Resource-based Road Works in Selected Districts in NAD and Nias Organization unit: ILO Jakarta
Grade: N/a Duty Station:  Sigli (Pidie District)
Contract type: Consultant    
Duration: 13 weeks Expected starting date: 15 April 2012
For any questions related to this post, please contact: – Mr. Bas Athmer, Chief Technical Adviser, Road Project, NAD, CO ILO Jakarta -

A. General Project Information
The UNDP/ILO Project “Creating Jobs: Capacity Building for Local Resource-based Road Works in Selected Districts in NAD and Nias” has been implemented since March 2006. The Project’s central aim is to support the Aceh Government in improving the livelihoods of the Acehnese people by enhancing the capacity of local governments to generate maximum employment opportunities through investments in rural infrastructure, particularly the road sector. Five years of post-tsunami reconstruction in Aceh has achieved improvements in rural road networks. But local governments are facing significant difficulties to put in place an effective maintenance system for these roads.  Specifically, they do not have practical tools and systems that will support budget planning to obtain necessary approval for the resources that are needed.

To ensure the sustainability of the Project’s interventions and the created/improved physical assets, a comprehensive Exit Strategy for the Project has been prepared for the Aceh cluster of the Project (Pidie and Bireuen District) from 1 September 2011 until 31 August 2012 .  This exit strategy – i.e. phase III of the Project – seeks to ensure that the LRB approaches that have been successfully demonstrated by the Project over the last five years will be sustained and that the lessons learned will be mainstreamed. Phase III aims at ensuring the sustainability of the investments made during phase I and II of the Project, in terms of their management and maintenance by the Government. An important element of phase III is the development of road master plans for Pidie and Bireuen District for the improvement and maintenance of the district and village road network at district level for which the Governments of Pidie and Bireuen district are
responsible. The intention is that these master plans – once developed and adopted by the local government – can serve as a model for wider replication in other districts in Aceh, and beyond. As it is important that master plans are being updated regularly, it is also very important that an affordable and practical system and procedure is being developed that will enable the district governments to regularly update the master plans (i.e. data availability and staffing resources issues need to be considered). 

B. Duties and Responsibilities
The Consultant Road Master Planning (CRMP) will work under the overall supervision and guidance of the Project’s Chief Technical Advisor ( CTA ) to whom he/she will report. The CRMP will be responsible for the formulation of multi-year road master investment plans for classified district and village roads for Pidie and Bireuen district. He/she will work in close coordination and collaboration with the Project staff and consultants, and with the concerned Government stakeholders – in particular with those at district level.
