A Programme Manager for TRTA II Pakistan at UNIDO Headquarters is responsible for the overall implementation of the programme and coordination with the EC, WIPO and ITC. The Programme Manager is assisted by an associate technical expert and an administrative assistant, both of whom are funded by the programme.
UNIDO has established a field-based TRTA II Programme Management Office (TRTA/PMO) in Islamabad. The PMO has been established at the UNIDO office in Islamabad.
A Chief Technical Advisor (CTA) has been appointed to head the PMO, along with a full complement of support staff including a Programme Officer for Component 1 to be part of the PMO. The principal duties of the PMO are overall programme coordination of all TRTA II programme components and field implementation of Component 2. The delivery of Component 3 activities will be managed at WIPO Headquarters in Geneva.
The PMO will be responsible for mobilizing programme resources as set out in the annual work plans, and will coordinate implementation with the beneficiary focal points, which have been established during inception in respect of each of the programme components of TRTA II (see below). It will prepare six-monthly progress reports and Annual Work Plans for the consideration of the PSC. The PMO will also endeavour to coordinate TRTA II programme activities with related interventions of other development partners and programmes as well as ensure visibility of TRTA II activities.
In order to provide strategic support to the PMO, UNIDO has established a High Level Monitoring and Evaluation Team (HLMET) comprising representatives of UNIDO, WIPO and ITC and a number of senior international experts in the field of trade capacity building (SPS management, productivity and quality infrastructure). The Team will: i) provide advice on strategic directions for the implementation of the programme, ii) monitor programme progress against goals, iii) assess consistency and synergies between programme components and iv) advise on strategic orientation and mainstreaming of TRTA II into GoP activities. Feedback and inputs will be provided to the programme management and to the PSC prior to its meetings. The HLMET has been consulted in detailed design of activities during inception phase and has supported the development of the monitoring indicators.
