Procurement Specialist

Job Type: Full time | Company: Chemonics International | Location: Tripoli, Libya | Date posted: 21-04-2016


Scope of Work


Job Title:            Procurement Specialist

Project:               Libya Transition Initiative (LTI) 2

Classification:     Long Term

Reports to:          Field Program Director



At the beginning of 2016, Libya’s political future is more uncertain than at any time since the 2011 revolution. Political division, armed conflict and a crisis of legitimacy at the national level have accelerated the fragmentation of Libya’s governance landscape. Regional coalitions which formed in 2014 have fractured during 2015 and cities and municipalities have become increasingly isolated. Libya’s two nominal national governments both exert little authority outside their respective bases in Tripoli and Tobruk. The political elites involved in the UN-sponsored dialogue to form a unity government lack legitimacy and the country lacks a national political leadership that can claim a mandate to negotiate a solution to Libya’s crises. The collapse of the national-level political process and institutions has shifted significant governance responsibilities to local formal and informal actors. Municipal councils are viewed as the most credible institutions, though they face serious challenges to providing services to their constituents. The collapse of state institutions and the fragmentation in Libya’s governance landscape has facilitated the rise of extremism in Libya, with the Islamic State taking advantage of the governance and security vacuum to strengthen its presence in Libya.
