Palladium Group County Engagement Modeling Process Jobs in Kenya


Background

  • Kenya’s vision for a devolved system includes private sector growth at the county level.

  • However, this has been difficult for counties to achieve.

  • While the constitution devolved authority to counties in 2010 for planning, financing, and implementing their own development, they continue to face challenges in implementation.

  • The United States Government aims to leverage its expertise and relationships to support county-level private sector solutions that will advance Kenya’s Journey to Self-Reliance (J2SR) and contribute to job creation, economic growth, and expanding tax revenues in Kenya’s secondary cities and rural areas.

  • KIM has focused its enabling environment efforts on facilitating county-level reforms that will unlock specific investments, beginning with a successful pilot approach in Makueni County.

    Purpose, Scope, and Deliverables of the Assignment

  • The objective of the assignment is to document a process for working with counties on enabling environment reforms—using KIM’s work with Makueni County as a model—to develop a methodology for future engagements with county governments that is in alignment with USAID’s Journey to Self-Reliance (J2SR) policy.

  • KIM seeks to create a how-to guide that includes lessons learned for future county engagements to identify specific investment opportunities and incorporate enabling environment reforms that target unlocking capital.

    Scope of Work

  • Under the guidance of KIM, the firm will develop a concise overview of processes, procedures, and decision points to guide future engagement with county governments on Business Enabling Environment activities, leveraging KIM’s experience on the Makueni County/Kalamba Fruit Factory initiative as well as the firm’s own experience working with counties.

    Key Activities

    • Undertake a rapid assessment of all steps KIM initiated with Makueni County and other
    stakeholders under the pilot.

    • Conduct interviews with KIM staff, Makueni County officials, and private sector actors involved in the pilot to identify processes and activities that worked well in addition to those that could be improved.

    • Identify additional activities that should have taken place, and/or stakeholders that should have been consulted, if any.

    • Develop a structural outline and checklist detailing the recommended process, decision points, and areas for stakeholder engagement for future county-level BEE interventions. (two- to three-page)

    • Present the proposed recommendations to at least two other counties, documenting and incorporating their feedback into the final recommendations.

    • Collaborate with KIM’s Communications Manager to develop a success story, white paper, or other communications piece (exact format to be determined in consultation with KIM) based on insights uncovered during the assignment.

    Key Deliverables

    • A final report that consists of:

  • A two- to three-page rapid assessment report highlighting all steps KIM initiated with Makueni County and other stakeholders, including processes and activities that worked well in addition to those that could be added or improved.

  • A one-page graphic on the recommended process for county investment and policy engagements;

  • A maximum two-page (preferred one-page) document detailing process flow and checklist engagement requirements;

  • A one-page outline for a county engagement (co-created) work plans; and

  • A maximum three-page report on lessons learned and other process improvement recommendations.

    • Conduct presentation sessions at two other counties on the county engagement methodology checklist.

    • Success story, white paper, or other communications piece (exact format to be determined in consultation with KIM)
