In collaboration with the Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency, CABRI is planning a workshop on Public Participation and Open Data for January 2018. This workshop will consider how improved participation by the public and parliament can help narrow the gap between transparency and accountability in Africa. We are seeking a consultant to develop four case studies (fictitious) that will inform our deliberations at the January workshop.
These terms of reference are to support CABRI in documenting and recording the stories of leaders within ministries of finance, within the CABRI network. The leadership stories project aims to illustrate that, despite numerous obstacles, budget officials can initiate change by taking actions and creating buy-in within the ministry. The purpose is to show, through concrete examples, that finance officials can have agency in conducting reforms in their country. The project will provide inspiring stories of bureaucrats who managed to take the initiative and conduct change in their ministries despite administrative and political obstacles. This work will also feed into the broader programme of work on institutional capabilities under CABRI’s strategic plan.
