PART II. RESULTS FRAMEWORK (Attached as Annex VI)




PART III. MANAGEMENT ARRANGEMENTS




A.1. Execution Arrangements


The MAPESS and its National Institute for Employment and Vocational Training (INEFOP) will be a key national counterpart for the development and implementation of the vocational training component in partnership with private sector and civil society institutions, which will be involved in the development and implementation of the vocational training activities. The capacity of INEFOP will be strengthened through the contribution of high-level national and international technical expertise, which will mainly concentrate on the capacity building exercise of the national staff involved in training delivery and in the Employment Offices. To achieve geographical and technical diversification, the training delivery mechanisms will not only involve formal providers but also mobile training units, on-the-job skill training and traditional apprenticeships. All the training proposals will be submitted to the approval of the Program Steering Committee, which should have the following functions related to the proposals:

  • Approve the procedures of funding training activities (typology of proposals, conditions of funding, contractual arrangements, follow-up mechanisms, etc);

  • Approve (or reject) fund allocations for the training sub-projects;

  • Monitor the progress of the different sub-projects approved;

  • Review the relevancy and effectiveness of training in terms of impact for the development of the private sector;

  • Co-ordinate with other development projects and programs, including the other components of the Angola Enterprise Program (AEP).

All the training providers will be enrolled under well-defined contractual arrangements. The process for contracting a training provider will start with the identification of a specific training need, the establishment of Terms of Reference (ToR) defining the required training action (by INEFOP and the Program Coordinator) and the launching of a public appeal for bids to all the potential providers.

The ToR will include the description and the location of the services, the objectives and the duration of the training, the number of trainees, as well as the conditions of the bidding and subcontracting processes. The subcontract and bidding process will follow the contract and procurement criteria established by the UNDP, including receiving at least three proposals; exceptions and of waivers should follow UNDP procedures and be justified by to the Steering Committee e.g. when it is recognized that only one or two providers are in conditions to deliver the required training (for example, in rural areas or provinces where the training offer is scarce).

The criteria for the approval of training proposals to be ratified by the Steering Committee will respect the following guidelines:


  • Relevancy of the training being offered for the development of the private sector and to the diversification of the economic activity in Angola;

  • Contribution to the geographical and content diversification of the training offered by the training providers;

  • Employability of the trainees;

  • Synergies and complementarities generated with other development programs and/or AEP program components;

  • Total training cost and costs of training each beneficiary;

  • Level of partner cost-sharing of the total training cost.

For each proposal approved by the Steering Committee a subcontract will be signed by UNDP and the selected provider. The subcontracts will include the objectives, the scope and location of the service being provided, the obligations of the parts, the amount and the modality of payments, the monitoring and evaluation criteria, the penalties in case of non-accomplishment and the regulation modalities of eventual disputes. All sub-contracts will be subject to audits.

The component will support the establishment of a Management Information System (MIS) that will enable the Steering Committee and the relevant implementation partners to react and take decisions based on the relevancy of the training for the development and diversification of the private sector. It will also provide adequate information on the use of resources, by collecting basic data on training sub-projects, by monitoring the progress of operations and by assessing the impact on beneficiaries and enterprises.



A.2 Monitoring, Measurement and Evaluation




A.2.1. Work planning, Monitoring, and reporting


The project will be monitored, evaluated and reported upon in accordance with revised UNDP monitoring and evaluation procedures, which will be made available to the project management at the beginning of the project. The INEFOP jointly with the Program Coordinator at the initial start-up of project activities, and subsequently at the beginning of each calendar year will draw up the project work-plans. This will be submitted together with the Annual Report to the Steering Committee of the Angola Enterprise Program.

A.2.2. Evaluation


An in-depth evaluation will be conducted 18 months into the implementation of the project, as part of the implementation of the UNDP Monitoring and Evaluation. The terms of reference for the evaluation will be proposed by UNDP for discussion and approval by the AEP Steering Committee.


PART IV – LEGAL CONTEXT

This project shall be the instrument referred to as such in article 1 of the Standard Basic Assistance Agreement between the Government of Angola and the United Nations Development Programme, signed by the parties on 18 February 1977. The host country’s implementing agency shall, for the purpose of the Standard Basic Assistance Agreement, refer to the Government co-operating agency described in that Agreement.



BUDGET (See Attached Annex IX)


ANNEX VI – Results Framework – Vocational Training Component

Intended Outcome:

Development of a diverse and robust micro, small and medium enterprise sector in Angola as contribution to the National Poverty Reduction Strategy.


Outcome indicator:

Relevancy and effectiveness of the training delivered by public and private training operators.


Partnership Strategy:

The component will be implemented through a close public-public and public-private partnership. The Angola Enterprise Steering Committee bring together representatives of the Government of Angola and of the private sector, including women and youth entrepreneurs. Through regular meetings, the partnership will generate debate that aims to build a common vision of the training sector administration and the need to improve market linkage and to diversify contents and geographical coverage. Consensus will be built regarding the investment in supplier strengthening and concrete training sub-projects aiming the development of the private sector in selected areas.
