About the Basel Institute on Governance
The Basel Institute on Governance (Basel Institute) is an independent, non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting governments and private-sector partners to prevent and combat corruption and strengthen governance systems. Its legal status is that of a Foundation registered in Basel, Switzerland.
Project: Tackling Serious and Organised Corruption (TSOC Malawi)
The objective of the Tackling Serious and Organised Corruption (TSOC) programme is to increase the likelihood and severity of sanctions for high-level corruption, and in doing so deter future crimes. The largest component is implemented by the International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR). This responds to strategic and technical assistance needs requested and agreed with the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), the Financial Intelligence Authority (FIA), and the office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP). TSOC also emphasizes prevention-oriented activities, including private sector engagement, supporting the work of the ACB’s prevention, education and research teams; and working with journalists to improve the quality of reporting on corruption and anti-corruption in Malawi, through the Continuing Journalism Education (CJE) activities.
The M&E Adviser will play a strategic role across the entire life cycle of the TSOC programme, working with ICAR technical advisers to ensure that the impact of TSOC activities are measured, documented and managed in line with our results framework and log frame. TSOC programme advisers identify obstacles to the implementation of effective anti-corruption measures in Malawi, and in agreement with our partner institutions, will propose and pilot legal, technical and institutional support measures to overcome these identified obstacles. The M&E Adviser will therefore be responsible to ensure the measurement, documentation and monitoring of TSOC activities to evaluate the effectiveness of TSOC activities in addressing those obstacles.
Working with Basel Institute HQ experts, the M&E Adviser will implement the TSOC M&E strategy in Malawi. Responsibilities will centre on collecting the data required by the TSOC M&E framework, organising it according to the relevant templates and ensuring all the required data is collected in a timely fashion in order to meet the reporting requirements of the Programme. The M&E Adviser will also contribute to the assessment of development results, in this case outcomes and impact, and their relationship with the programme’s interventions (outputs, indicators, and activities). To determine whether the programme is being implemented efficiently and effectively, a mix of progress and context data will be collected. This requires the use of both quantitative and qualitative data collection methods.
In particular, the mentor’s responsibilities include:
Work-planning and stakeholder engagement:
Working with the Public Governance Team, the M&E Adviser will report to the TSOC Team Leader (TL), and Programme Manager (PM). The adviser will be responsible to develop a quarterly workplan and provide monthly activity reports to the TL and PM.
