The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) of the US Department of State is actively engaged in Kenya’s efforts to professionalize its national police service. INL supports three Kenyan entities (henceforth, the Entities) whose mandate is to bolster police accountability, through operational and technical assistance to the Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) of the National Police Service, the Independent Policing Oversight Authority (IPOA), and the National Police Service Commission (NPSC). The latter two bodies are civilian-staffed and provide external oversight of the police.

INL requires technical advisory and project management advisory services to strengthen and develop ICT systems for several ongoing and upcoming components in their program. The specific project objective for UNOPS is to provide INL/Kenya with ICT project management and advisory services, technical assistance and performance monitoring/evaluation against contracted deliverables.

The ICT Specialist, reporting to the Project Manager, is responsible for providing detailed technical analysis of the existing systems in place, guidance on the requirements for the ongoing development of new systems, and quality assurance for their implementation. They are the key liaison between the Project Manager and the other project stakeholders when ensuring that all software development activities are performed to a high standard and that the project’s outcomes are achieved with good quality products.
