1. Background
The Operations Committee Secretariat & Quality Assurance Department (SNOQ) works to continuously enhance the quality and timely delivery of bank operations, adopting a one-bank approach from identification to completion, with a view to facilitating the achievement of the high-5 corporate agenda.
Over the past five years the Quality Assurance Division has revamped the set of quality assurance (QA) and results reporting (RR) tools applicable to Bank public sector operations throughout the project cycle. To enhance staff skills in the use of these tools, a series of training modules have been developed covering: (i) the results-based logical framework (RLF), (ii) quality at entry (QaE) standards and project rating during preparation, (iii) performance reporting and rating during implementation through the Implementation Progress and Results Report (IPR), and (iv) project completion reporting (PCR) and performance rating. The QA dashboard system developed by the division aims at monitoring the use of QA tools and more particularly at verifying that project ratings are candid and evidence-based.
Building on these achievements, the Task Manager (TM ) Academy” has been conceived as a Bank-wide effort aimed at establishing and institutionalizing a comprehensive e-learning program mandatory for all Task Managers of the AfDB. Key operational challenges that will be addressed through the TM Academy include, among others, improving project preparation, strengthening results log-frameworks and complying with IPR and PCR guidelines on rating methodology.
The Quality Assurance Division (SNOQ.2) will recruit a junior consultant to work collaboratively with staff in the Department and other Bank partner units to support the establishment of the TM Academy.
