The Fiscal Affairs Department (FAD) of the IMF is looking for a well-qualified expert to fill a Public Financial Management (PFM) Resident Advisor position at the West African Regional Technical Assistance Center (West AFRITAC), established in 2003 and based in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire. The Advisor's appointment term, starting on July 2013, would be for a period of one year on a renewable basis, subject to satisfactory performance.
The Advisor will provide technical assistance (TA) on a range of PFM areas to the ten (10) countries covered by West AFRITAC, namely Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, and Togo. The Advisor's work program will cover the whole range of PFM areas: legal and regulatory framework; budget, financial control and audit with a focus on budget execution (including expenditure control and tracking, treasury operations, cash management, accounting, fiscal reporting, and financial management information system).
The Advisor will work under the general direction of the Coordinator of West AFRITAC while, on substantive issues, he/she will report to FAD staff in Washington, D.C. Extensive travel within the West AFRITAC region should be expected. The successful candidates will work closely with the other PFM Resident Advisor assigned to the Center.
