Based on the progress of the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) to date, TCN requires a Consultant to perform an audit of the Involuntary Resettlement process, to provide remediation measures to fill the potential gaps between the activities led and the E&S framework of the Project.Moreover, the services include an overall critical analysis of TCN Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS), focused on Involuntary Resettlement management, in order to fill potential existing gaps towards national regulation or World Bank E&S standard n°5, and prepare TOR for an overall ESMS audit and upgrade.

The total duration of the consultancy shall be sixteen (16) weeks.

Specific tasks to be carried out by the Consultant include:

Task 1: The consultant firm will develop a social safeguard-screening checklist to guide the audit. The checklist should be informed by the World Bank Operational Safeguard Policies, in particular OP 4.12 and should cover, and facilitate the assessment of, all pertinent and social safeguards issues including but not limited to:

2. The distribution of the impacts related to land acquisition and resettlement. Specific attention and reference will be made to the impact on vulnerable groups (including women, poorest people, etc.)

3. The extent, quality and documentation of community consultation, including with regards to the categories of stakeholders represented, the quantitative aspect of the consultations (frequency of consultations, number of participants, etc.), and the information made available to communities and the compliance of this consultation process with the OP 4.12.

4. The extent of the Involuntary Resettlement process led so far, including eligibility, compensation for economical and physical displacement as well as the potential mitigation measures actually taken.

5. Assess the extent to which resettlement plans have been conceived and executed as development programs with regard to the following:

• Assisting with move and support displaced persons during the transition period in the resettlement site.
• Assistance to displaced persons in their efforts to improve their former living standards, income earning capacity, and production levels, or at least to restore them. Particular attention should be paid to the needs of the vulnerable groups resettled.
6. The extent to which various categories of people affected by the resettlement were identified along with all livelihoods that were adversely impacted.

7. The complaint and redress mechanisms implementation, and community members’ free and equal access to such mechanisms.

8. The extent of delivery of appropriate compensation and resettlement entitlements to PAPs – whether entitlements have been delivered per RAP commitments.

9. Assess the level of achievement of the desired livelihood outcomes in terms of quantitative livelihood outcomes, qualitative resettlement indicators, priority development needs of PAPs as indicated in the socio-economic baseline survey, and compliance to OP 4.12 (i.e. replacement of assets, informed participation, improved living conditions/security of tenure).

10. The extent to which entitlements and benefit programs delivered to PAPs have contributed to the achievement of sustainable livelihoods.

11. The level of social and economic integration of resettlers into host communities and the extent to which adverse impacts on host communities have been minimized.

12. The dynamism and effectiveness of TCN results and impact monitoring effort in tracking impact mitigation and livelihood re-establishment.

NATIONAL SOCIAL SAFETY NET COORDINATING OFFICE (NASSCO)-

REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST: ENGAGEMENT OF AN EXTERNAL FIRM TO CONDUCT THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL AUDIT OF THE NATIONAL SOCIAL SAFETY NETS PROJECT

TERMS OF REFERENCE: ENGAGEMENT OF AN EXTERNAL FIRM TO CONDUCT THE ANNUAL FINANCIAL AUDIT OF THE NATIONAL SOCIAL SAFETY NETS PROJECT

  1. BACKGROUND

The Government of Nigeria has prioritized social protection interventions as a key strategy towards reducing poverty and socio-economic vulnerabilities in the country and has partnered with the World Bank under a National Social Safety Nets Project (NASSP) to expand the development of safety nets to poor and vulnerable populations.
The Project Development Objective (PDO) is to provide access to targeted transfers to poor and vulnerable households under an expanded national social safety nets system. NASSP involves two components: (i) establishing systems for social safety nets that would serve as a robust platform for effectively targeting and delivering social assistance; and (ii) implementing cash transfers to targeted poor and vulnerable households. The program has national coverage, with all states eligible to participate.
To operationalize NASSP, the Government established the National Social Safety Net Coordinating Office (NASSCO), under the supervision of the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development (FMHDSD); to consolidate existing social safety net programs at the Federal level and build the National Social Register (NSR), a database of poor and vulnerable households (PVHHs), which will be used across the country’s different safety net programs, irrespective of funding source or targeted beneficiary group. Different stakeholders, such as governments, development partners, and or civil society will be able to use the systems for delivering social assistance programs in Nigeria.

1.1. Implementation Arrangement

The implementation of NASSP involves several key organizations and stakeholders:
• National Social Safety Nets Coordinating Office (NASSCO): The aim and mandate of NASSCO, being established at the Federal level, is to coordinate all Government programs in the sector, supporting a national system for efficient social safety nets coordination and response.
• National Cash Transfer Office (NCTO): The NCTO, being established at the Federal level, reports to NASSCO, and has the overall management responsibility for the targeted cash transfer.
• State Operations Coordination Unit (SOCU): Each State participating in NASSP has a SOCU. The SOCU is housed in the State office for Budget and Planning. The SOCU is responsible for establishing and managing the State-level social registry, M&E/MIS, and reporting progress to NASSCO.
• State Cash Transfer Unit (SCTU): Each State participating in NASSP has set up a State Cash Transfer Unit (SCTU) separate from the SOCU. The residence of the SCTU will vary from State to State, depending on the State’s set-up, but likely residence of the SCTU includes the Ministry of Agriculture, Social Development, and Women Affairs. The SCTU will have close links with NCTO which will monitor that activities are carried out according to plans and standards.
Establishment and sustainability of this project aims to lay the foundation for the Federal Government’s long-term objective of effectively targeting and delivering a wide range of future safety nets interventions directly to the poor and vulnerable households in a more efficient and effective way.

AFRICAN REINSURANCE CORPORATION (AFRICA RE)-

INVITATION TO TENDER FOR THE INTERNAL AUDIT OF AFRICA RE’S INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

INVITATION TO TENDER FOR THE INTERNAL AUDIT OF AFRICA RE’S INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

1. BACKGROUND ON COMPANY STRUCTURE

Established in 1976 by 36 member States of the African Union and the African Development Bank Group (AfDB), The AFRICAN REINSURANCE CORPORATION (AFRICA RE), the leading reinsurance company in Africa and the Middle East, is a pan-African financial institution whose shareholding is split between African (75%) and Non-African (25%) investors. African shareholding comprises 41 African states, the AfDB, and more than 117 African insurance/reinsurance companies from the 41 member countries. Headquartered in Lagos (Nigeria), Africa Re has a continental network of regional and local offices in Lagos (Nigeria), Casablanca (Morocco), Nairobi (Kenya), Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), Ebène (Mauritius), Cairo (Egypt), Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) and Kampala (Uganda), as well as two subsidiaries: Africa Re (South Africa) Ltd in Johannesburg and Africa Retakaful Ltd in Cairo (Egypt).

2. CURRENT INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Africa Re has invested in an IT infrastructure upgrade with a primary data center in Lagos, Nigeria and a redundancy / recovery site in Casablanca, Morocco. Both of these sites are hosted by third parties. All the eight regional and local offices of Africa Re and two subsidiaries connect to either the primary data center or the recovery site via dedicated VPN links. All the core business applications are implemented at both the Primary and Recovery sites and the data mirrored continuously. The regional office locations and subsidiary locations, however, maintain network infrastructure and communication systems to enable them to connect with either of the primary or recovery data centers. The Corporation has also outsourced the hosting of its email system and website to 2 different offshore companies, each with its own redundancy sites.

However, important changes are to be effective by the beginning of the audit.

The Corporation recently subscribed to a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) on VMware Cloud on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The VMware Cloud on AWS is an integrated cloud offering jointly developed by Amazon Web Services (AWS) and VMware. The benefit to the Corporation is that it allows us to continue to run our traditional virtualization servers and workloads in the AWS cloud while providing us scalability and efficiency with direct, high-speed access to AWS services.

The Corporation will then have two of such data centers: The London SDDC which is the primary, and the North Virginia SDDC, USA which is the secondary. The essence of these two SDDCs is to provide a disaster recovery platform for the Corporation, as data would continually be replicated between the two SDDCs. The advantage of this is that in event that one SDDC is down, business operations would easily be failed over to the second SDDC for production to continue.

In addition to the above, the Corporation has subscribed for Citrix cloud solution and has integrated this with the SDDC. We currently use the Citrix platform to render the SICS business applications to users, although SICS is still in the implementation stage.

The Citrix platform also has the capabilities to securely render existing production applications to users such that they can access them from anywhere and at any time, hence boosting productivity.

3. OBJECTIVES OF THE INTERNAL AUDIT

The Consultant or Consulting Firm, herewith both called the “Consultant”, who shall perform the Internal Audit is expected to conduct a comprehensive review of the entire ICT infrastructure, systems and applications of the Corporation, its subsidiaries, Regional and Local Offices.

The Consultant will be required to adhere to the terms of reference stated below and where necessary expand the scope.

4. SCOPE OF THE WORK

The ICT Internal Audit will include, but not be limited, to the following:

1) IT Governance and Management Audit

a) Alignment of IT and business strategy

b) Delivery of IT services in line with business requirements

c) Long term and short term IT strategies

d) Review of IT Budgeting process

e) IT organization, policies, and processes

f) IT human resources management

g) IT performance monitoring and reporting

h) IT risk management, and its integration in the Corporation’s Enterprise Risk Management

i) Necessity of implementing an IT Service Management System, like ITIL & ISO 20000, and advice on the adequate system for the Corporation and the best way to go about this

2) Operating System (OS) for applications, databases and network equipment Review

j) Logical access controls

k) User access management & security

l) Set up and maintenance of system parameters

m) Patch and update management
