Background and Objectives

The World Bank is supporting the Government of Tunisia in the strengthening of its social protection and labor systems and programs through two projects as following.

Social Protection Reform Support Project (TF15956-P144674) is an ongoing grant project financed by the MENA Translon Fund that supports capacity building and institutional strengthening for social protection reform. Activities are executed by the Ministry of Social Affairs (MAS), CRES (Centre des Recherches et des études Sociales), and social insurance funds (CNSS, CNRPS, CNAM), under oversight of Ministry of Finance, Office of President, and Ministry of Development and International Cooperation (MDCI). The project consists of three components as follows:

  • Improvement of social safety net system, including establishment of MAS’s Management Information System (MIS) for social assistance programs, implementation of social inquiry, and development of targeting tool
  • Integration of social protection system, including implementation of unique social identifier and interoperability of social insurance funds’ MIS and MAS’s social assistance programs, and upgrading information system for user friendly service (e.g., customer relations management tool for social insurance fund)
  • Project management, monitoring, and communication, including support to the project implementation unit for project implementation, and communication and citizen grievance redress procedure/mechanisms


Productive Inclusion of Vulnerable Youth
(P158138) is a new lending project which is currently under preparation. The project aims to improve jobs opportunities of targeted vulnerable groups. The project implementation will be led by the Ministry of Employment, under close collaboration with other ministries, including MAS, Ministry of Youth, and Ministry of Industry. Below is the proposed components.

  • Identifying and Connecting Target Groups to Inclusive Jobs through (1) targeting and profiling of target groups, and (2) connecting target groups to wage employment through counseling, training, job-search assistance, stipends to support on-the-job training and complementary financing and support services.
  • Supporting Job Creation through (1) support services to develop job opportunities in value chains and social enterprises, and (2) productivity and job fund.
  • Building Effective and Accountable Program Delivery through (1) capacity building and communication, (2) improving monitoring and feedback mechanism, and (3) improvement of MIS and information sharing across agencies, and (4) implementation support to the PIU.

Based on these project components, it is clear that dedicated /IT expertise for the projects is essential to support ongoing efforts under the SP reform project as well as to conduct MIS/IT assessment for the new lending project.

The assessment aims to identify the strengths and weakness and summarize recommendations for the discussion with executing agencies (i.e., MAS, CRES, CNSS, CNRPS) to improve the quality of the MIS/IT system and the integrity of the data, which are the basis for managing social assistance programs and social insurance funds more effectively and transparently.

  • Identify the issues and the areas for further improvement
  • Based on the assessments and discussion with the counterparts, prepare the recommendations, together with potential options and the requirements

  • Based on these assessments, identify the various requirements (covering multiple aspects, including as human resource, capacity, financial resources, and specifications [functional requirements]) of the IT systems required to support Project activities.

The consultant shall be expected to base their assessment and design proposals based on the analysis conducted by the World Bank team in collaboration with the Government agencies.

Deliverables will include technical reports/notes on the above analyses and assessments [specifically on activities 1-6 above], comments on the documents provided by the Government counterparts, and files and briefing materials that were prepared when providing technical assistance to the government counterparts. Deliverable can be also in the forms of more process-oriented, such as regular short emails to report the World Bank team on the updates on the status of activities/assessment and summary of main issues for attention.
