Due Date

Organisation Description
The Department of Water Resources (DoWR) under the auspices of the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, was set up to ensure sustainable and equitable access to safe water and sanitation for the people of Vanuatu to support improved public health and promote social and economic development.

Job Description
In 2017, a ‘National Implementation Plan for Safe and Secure Drinking Water’ (NIP), was approved by the National Water Advisor Council (NWAC).  The NIP is a national framework for achieving Vanuatu’s vision of 100% access to safely managed drinking water by 2030. The NIP defines 2 key implementation mechanisms: (1) ‘Drinking Water Safety and Security Plans’ (DWSSP) which is a community level planning tool and data gathering mechanism that enables the DoWR to plan and implement water infrastructure investments; and (2) the ‘Capital Assistance Programme’ (CAP) which is the financing and procurement mechanism that allows DoWR to deliver water infrastructure projects for communities that have completed a DWSSP. The NIP aims to complete DWSSPs for all 2000 Vanuatu communities by 2030. 

MFAT has funded the DoWR directly to implement the NIP and CAP through Government smart stream processes.  As such DoWR staff need to be able to use smart stream to create regular donor reports.  In addition, new staff have been hired, who need to support navigating the Tender Process.
