Background Information – Job Specific

The Government of the Republic of the Philippines with the support of the European Union is implementing the Justice Sector Reform Programme: Governance in Justice (GOJUST). GOJUST is funded by the European Union to the value of EUR 16,000,000 and with the support of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (EUR 2,000,000). The overall objective of GOJUST is: To contribute to inclusive growth and poverty reduction through a strengthened justice system and its specific objective is: To increase the efficiency, effectiveness and accountability of the formal justice system. The programme is being implemented from April 2016 to September 2019.

GOJUST seeks to achieve four major result areas, as follows:

  • Result 1: Sector-wide coordination of the justice system strengthened and long-term reform strategy developed;
  • Result 2: Backlog curtailed in courts and prosecution services and case management system streamlined and computerised (with focus on 'justice zones');
  • Result 3: Justice sector agencies’ administrative and financial management systems improved;
  • Result 4: National/Regional Human Rights Institutions and CSO’s capacity to promote accountability and fight impunity for major human rights violations strengthened.

The support provided under this program will have a far reaching effect on the entire justice system, and will impact on three main agencies of government, namely the Judiciary, led by the Supreme Court at the apex, the Department of Justice, which includes the prosecution service, the correctional system, the public attorneys, the National Bureau of Investigation,  and the Department of Interior and Local Government, which includes the police, the local detention facilities and the barangay justice system. 

The first annual work plan of the programme has been approved by the Programme Steering Committee last 24 October 2016, and part of that work plan involves the hiring of additional contractual staff to assist in the reform programme. These particular terms of reference refer to the hiring of two Administrative Assistant whose main functions would be to support Result Area 2.
