The UKs Department for International Development (DFID) is considering fulfilling a new requirement in 2018 where we will be seeking partners suppliers to implement the Mobilising Data for Anti Corruption (MoDAC) programme in Nigeria and Ghana in the first year then potentially scaling up to include Kenya and Tanzania from the second year onwards. These countries have already been chosen by the UK as key partners in the fight against corruption when they attended the London Anti Corruption Summit in 2016. Any contract would be expected to start in late 2018.
The programme would aim to improve the quality and use of corruption data, over a four and a half year period, to increase the number of high level sanctions, penalties and prosecutions in corruption cases. It would fund partnerships between professional users of anti-corruption data in law enforcement, civil society, the media and private sector. Partnerships would follow the data on specific corruption cases or high corruption risk events (such as a high value government procurement or extractives contract)
The Finance and Grants Officer, Ghana, will be required to manage all the Finance and Grants E disbursed under the Programme team in this country as well as data collection responsibilities. The Officer is responsible to the Leadership Team and the Finance & Grants Director for coordination of the fund management function.
