Tender Details :

Tenders are invited for National Consultant (Expert) to Support a Training in Restorative Justice (JR). Background Since its independence, Guinea-Bissau has been living in a vicious cycle of political instability, caused by a series of interconnected causes, including lack of access to justice and impunity. Despite the enshrinement of political, civil, economic and social rights in the Constitution, laws are poorly enforced, resulting in limited and inequitable access to justice services by the population and a global decline in confidence in the state system and the institutions of the justice. The State has not been able to fulfill its mission of ensuring justice and security throughout the territory, particularly in rural areas, and especially for women, young people and children. Since independence, there has been a coexistence of formal justice, a system based on the official law inherited from colonial times, and traditional forms of justice based on law. The so-called formal justice system is expensive, slow, poorly managed, and widely discredited by the public, being seen by many as manipulative and corrupt, serving only the needs and interests of the most powerful. As a result, and for historical and cultural reasons, a large part of the population uses alternative methods of conflict resolution (MARC). And therefore, most disputes are settled by local institutions responsible for resolving conflicts, including the family, district, village and tribal leaders - especially in rural areas - and since 2012 - through Justice (CAJ). Given the scope and limited knowledge and training in restorative justice (JR) techniques and mechanisms at the national level, UNDP (United Nations Development Program) through a MARC and JR-focused project, is organizing JR training for actors working on justice issues in the country. Duties and Responsibilities Objective of the Consultancy: The objective of this consultancy is to support JR training for national actors. Duties and Responsibilities: The national consultant under the general supervision of the Deputy Resident Representative of UNDP and the technical supervision of the Chief Technical Adviser for Justice is expected to support an international consultant in the implementation of the following tasks: · Review of available documents and laws to better understand the project, context and objectives of this consultancy; · Production and preparation of training contents, taking into account existing legislation on MARC and / or JR - both international and Bissau-Guinean; · Organization of training sessions and presentation of contents to trainees; · Preparation of the report summarizing the exercise and proposing follow-up activities; · Etc.

Payments are based on production, ie after delivery of the services specified in ToR. In order to assist the applicant`s consultancy unit in comparing financial offers, consultants are requested to include a clear breakdown of the total amount (including travel, per diem and expected number of working days). Travel: All planned travel expenses must be included in the financial proposal. This includes all trips to the city where the consultant`s travel and repatriation trip will be located. In general, UNDP should not accept higher travel costs than an economy class ticket. If the consultant wishes to travel in a higher class he must do so using his own resources. In the case of trips not initially planned, their costs must be agreed in advance, including tickets, accommodation and other expenses, between the respective consulting unit and the individual consultant, so that costs can be reimbursed. Assessment: Individual consultants will be evaluated based on the following methodology: cumulative analysis. When using this weighted scoring method, the contract should be awarded to the individual consultant whose offer has been evaluated and determined as: · Responsive / compatible / acceptable; and · Having received the highest score from a predetermined set of technical and financial criteria weighted specifically for this request; · Weight of the technical criteria - 70 points; · Weight of the financial criteria - 30 points.
