The REGMIFA Technical Assistance Facility was set up as an independent entity to the Investment Fund. The TA Facility is a key part of REGMIFA’s value proposal and is thought to increase the Fund’s impact on its partnering institutions (PLIs) by combining Technical Assistance (TA) with much needed financial resources, ensuring maximized efficiency of funding and directly supporting the investment pipeline of the Fund.
The complementing of the Fund’s financial assistance to PLIs with non-financial services takes place in the areas of Technical Assistance, Consulting and Training. These efforts aim the strengthening of financial institutions and of the sector across the region and can be complementary to other industry initiatives.
The TA Facility pursues the delivery of competitive and high quality consultancy services and the provision of services based on clients’ needs. In close collaboration with the management of the institutions, the TA Facility assess the services needed and ensures a highly transparent and competitive consultant selection process, whereby it is made sure that the engaged consultants are highly experienced in their fields.
The main areas in which the TA Facility engages competent and reliable consultant partners are:
- Governance, Management, Business Planning
- Risk Management, Internal Control
- Loan Portfolio, Credit Products
- Savings and Non-credit product development
- Social Performance Management
- Human Resources
- Performance, Finance and Accounting
- Marketing and Customer Relationship Management
- Management Information System
- Network Management and Reporting
- Institutional Development and Transformation
- Other (e.g. Leasing, Factoring, etc.)
The TA Facility has set up a Consultant Database, which compiles information, expertise and skills about partnering consultants; this information is used as a basis for short-list compilation and direct contracting as well.
Consultants interested in a potential partnership to the TA Facility are invited to register in the TA Facility Database. It is also possible to contact our TA Facility Team for more information or to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
