Nigeria State Accountability, Transparency and Effectiveness (State2State)

Project Overview

The purpose of the “State Accountability, Transparency and Effectiveness” (“State2State”)

Activity is to increase the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of selected state and

local governments (LGAs) in Nigeria. This will be achieved by: strengthening governance

systems (with a focus on public financial management [PFM] and procurement, as well as

monitoring and evaluation) related to the delivery of services in key sectors (basic education,

primary health care, and water, sanitation and hygiene [WASH]); increasing government

responsiveness to citizen needs and priorities; and improving government and civil society

capacity to manage conflict (through work on prevention, mitigation and reconciliation with the

same sectoral partners, not stand-alone assistance to the police or judiciary). These goals will be accomplished through the strengthening of subnational governance systems in a sustainable manner, supporting the efforts of local reformers and building on locally-derived solutions including, to the extent possible, reforms already working in other parts of Nigeria.

The project is expected to include the following components:

· More accountable, transparent and effective subnational governance in partner states

· Increased efficiency of government operations in areas of audit, procurement, and internal revenue generation

· Increased efficiency of subnational government operations

· Improved responsiveness to citizen needs

· Improved capacity to manage conflict

State2State is presently accepting expressions of interest from qualified Nigerian nationals for this upcoming project. Chemonics seeks candidates with experience working on USAID or other international donor funded projects in Sokoto, Bauchi, Ebonyi, Adamawa, Gombe and Akwa Ibom.
