Location of Consultancy: Vanuatu


Transparency Vanuatu (TV) is a local civil society organisation with a vision that Vanuatu be a place in which government, politics, business, civil society, and the daily lives of its people are free of corruption. TV is a member of Transparency International (TI), the global civil society movement leading the fight against corruption through more than 100 independent Chapters and affiliates worldwide. TV works with powerholders and communities and citizens to stop corruption and promote transparency, accountability, and integrity at all levels and across all sectors of our society.

In 2021, TV launched its new Strategic Plan for 2021 to 2023. Building on the progress made since TV’s inception in 2001, this ambitious plan sets out the work of TV into the future. The strategy is organised around three strategic priorities, while also building the strength and sustainability of TV as an organisation. The three strategic priorities are:

  1. Protect the Public’s Resources
  2. Secure Integrity in Politics
  3. Expand Civic Space for Accountability

TV now requires the resources and funding to deliver this strategy. As such, TV is seeking a consultant to lead the design process of a new project to operationalise the strategic priorities and access funding from the TI Secretariat and other donors. The design process must be participatory and will involve facilitating workshops with TV’s staff, board, and youth volunteers, and developing concept notes for targeted donors (in the required format), as well as a full proposal, including monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) plan to access funds from the TI Secretariat. Additionally, the consultant will work closely with key TV staff to build their capacity in project planning and design and key tools and processes to manage donor projects.


  • Build the capacity of the TV team to develop project proposals, access funding from institutional donors and plan and deliver projects.
  • Design a project to operationalise the 2021-2023 Strategic Plan and support TV to access further funding from the TI Secretariat.
  • Develop concept notes of further project areas that can be used to scope further funding from institutional donors.


  • Facilitate workshops with TV staff, volunteers and board to design a project to operationalise the Strategic Plan – by mid-November.
  • Facilitate a workshop or interviews with key stakeholders to inform project design – by mid-November.
  • Write up the project design, MEL plan and logframe or activity plan and validate with TV leadership – by late November
  • Develop 1 to 3 concept notes of further project areas that can be used to scope further funding from institutional donors – by mid-December.

All presentations and reports should be submitted in English, in electronic form, in accordance with the deadlines stipulated above. The Consultant is responsible for editing and quality control of language. The TI Secretariat retains the sole rights with respect to all distribution, dissemination, and publication of the deliverables.

TIV Advocates In North West Malekula Schools 

Transparency International Vanuatu continues to inform schools on the island of Malekula about the Right To Information (RTI) Law.

Today the Transparency International Vanuatu Team continued its awareness program to north west Malekula and visited Unmet College and Brenwei Junior Secondary School.

These were the schools, in the north west area, that took part in the consultation process in 2016 including Unmet community. 

TIV Advocacy Officer Douglas Tamara Informs students.

Many students will wonder “but how will the RTI Law benefit us?”

The Right To Information Law is able to assist students who are doing their research. Because whatever age category you are you have the right to access accurate information. It will largely help students educational development.

Furthermore, the RTI Law is established to “promote transparency, accountability and national development by empowering and educating the public to understand and act upon their right to information and to increase public participation in governance.”
