The Local Fund Agent (LFA) is a crucial part of the Global Fund’s system of oversight and risk management. Its main role is to provide informed and independent professional advice about the capacity of Principal Recipients (PR) to manage the implementation of activities funded under grants (including PR capacity to oversee implementation of activities by Sub-Recipients), to make recommendations concerning periodic disbursement of grant funds, to review grant performance when a grant is being considered for renewal, and to provide the Global Fund Secretariat on an ongoing basis with relevant information on issues or risks which might affect grant performance.
The LFA is expected to have an up-to-date and comprehensive understanding of the diseases (HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria), how they are prevented, transmitted and treated and their impact on the country. The LFA assesses the PR’s institutional and health/programmatic capacities and arrangements to ensure adequate health expertise (HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and/or malaria) in the implementation of the Global Fund grants. The LFA also determines whether the PR has adequate infrastructure and information systems to support grant implementation, including the monitoring of performance of Sub-Recipients and outsourced entities in a timely and accountable manner.
Under the direct supervision of the UNOPS Morocco LFA Team Leader, the Finance Professional will be based in Rabat and be responsible for the financial coordination of the Morocco LFA Team and for ensuring that all LFA work is of high quality and completed within the timeframe set by the Global Fund.
