The Government of Malawi has received financing from the World Bank toward the cost of the Shire Valley Transformation Programme-1, and intends to apply part of the proceeds for consulting services. The consulting services (“the Services”) include a Team of Experts called an Investment Assessment Panel (IAP) which will review business plan proposals developed by Smallholder Owned Commercial Farm Enterprises in collaboration with buyers and other value chain entities (off takers) with whom they will participate in Productive Alliances. The IAP will comprise both regular and non- regular key experts. The regular key experts are the ones that will be required to participate in all events related to assessment of the business plans as their expertise cut across any business plans that will be submitted. Non-regular (additional) experts are experts that may only be required to assess the business plans for a particular value chain in which they are specialized in.

The Ministry of Agriculture now invites eligible individuals (“Consultants”) to indicate their interest in providing the Services of an Aquaculture/Fisheries Specialist, a non-regular member of the Investment Assessment Panel. Interested Consultants should provide information demonstrating that they have the required qualifications and relevant experience to perform the Services.

The shortlisting criteria are:

  1. At least an MSc University degree in Aquaculture Fisheries
  1. At least 10 years’ work experience in the aquaculture fisheries.
  1.  Demonstrated experience in fishpond construction, pond management and feeding of aquaculture fisheries. 
  1. Knowledge and experience in fish processing, packaging and distribution
  1. Practical work experience with estimating investment costs and recurrent costs for fish farming

The attention of interested Consultants is drawn to paragraph 1.9 of the World Bank’s Guidelines: Selection and Employment of Consultants under IBRD Loans and IDA Credits & Grants by World Bank Borrowers January 2011 edition, revised July 2014 (“Consultant Guidelines”), setting forth the World Bank’s policy on conflict of interest. 

A Consultant will be selected in accordance with the Individual Consultant selection method set out in the Consultant Guidelines.

Further information can be obtained at the address below during office hours from 7:30hrs to 12:00hrs and from 13:00hrs to 17:00hrs except on Weekends and Public Holidays.
