Public Sector Reform Experts
Chemonics International Inc. seeks public sector reform and public financial management experts for the anticipated Support to the Palestinian Authority to Build Stability, Deliver Services and Promote Reform in the Occupied Palestinian Territories component under the Stability, Services and Reform Programme (SSRP) funded by the UK-Government (DFID) based in Ramallah, West Bank.

The project is scheduled to be awarded in August 2018. Mobilisation will commence in September 2018 with implementation over a period of 3-5 years.
