Duration of Initial Contract : 12 months

Background

UNDP Indonesia’s mission is to be an agent for change in the human and social development of Indonesia. We aim to be a bridge between Indonesia and all donors as well as a trusted partner to all stakeholders. We work in four key areas of development: Governance Reforms, Pro-Poor Policy Reforms, Conflict Prevention and Recovery, and Environment Management, with the overarching aim of reducing poverty in Indonesia. Besides the four priority areas, UNDP Indonesia is also engaged in a variety of crosscutting initiatives focused on HIV/AIDS, gender equality, and information and technology for development.

During 2008, while preparing for national Legislative Elections to be held in April 2009 and two rounds of Presidential Elections to be held soon after, Indonesia’s electoral authorities will also be organising and conducting more than 200 local Elections. With such an intensive and compressed electoral timetable, the General Election Commission of Indonesia (KPU) and other government agencies dealing with elections (Ministry of Home Affairs – MoHA and National Development Planning Agency – Bappenas) are facing many challenges, the least of which are the very high expectations of political parties, the media and of course the public, to deliver elections of the same or higher standard of integrity and participation that has characterised previous electoral processes.
Despite the positive results achieved during the previous national elections, the KPU, MoHA, Bappenas and UNDP realise that the considerable progress which has been made until now needs to be further consolidated and sustained. Any setback or deterioration in the efficiency, integrity and credibility of the forthcoming elections could have serious repercussions not only in the consolidation of the democratic process in Indonesia, but also for the overall stability of the region. Building on their prior and still ongoing involvement in supporting the electoral process in Indonesia, UNDP and the rest of the international community remain fully committed to assisting the KPU, MoHA, and Bappenas to conduct peaceful and credible elections, and further consolidating itself as a permanent, professional and independent institution of governance.
Past UNDP support to the 1999 and 2004 elections have demonstrated the extent of confidence that UNDP has thus far enjoyed from the Government of Indonesia (GoI), National Electoral Commission (KPU), CSO’s and donor agencies working on electoral issues. Through past experience, UNDP has secured a knowledge base that will prove useful for future electoral support activities.

This proposed Multi-Donor Programme – Support to Indonesia’s Democratic Elections (Elections MDP) project consists of a 3-year technical assistance initiative that seeks to enhance and further consolidate the institutional and professional capacities of the KPU, its Secretariat and its regional offices to meet the numerous priorities that are faced both in the immediate and longer-term. It also seeks to enhance the quality of participation of voters in Indonesia’s elections, by increasing the awareness of voters on the importance of democratic processes that will serve as a foundation for post-election engagement with elected public officials. This support also seeks to facilitate the Government of Indonesia in coordinating international support to elections in Indonesia, with the aim of achieving a harmonised donor programme in line with the principles contained in the Paris Declaration of Aid Effectiveness.

To achieve the above objectives, there are three sectors to be set up in the Project Management Unit of the Elections MDP, i.e., Electoral Management, Political Participation, and Coordination Support. Each sector will be managed by a Sector Manager.  Under direct supervision from the Sector Manager for Coordination Support, the Project Clerk will ensure that administrative activities of the project run in line with the rules and regulations of UNDP and implementing agency.
