UNDP Indonesia’s mission is to be an agent for change in the human and social development of Indonesia.  We, the UNDP Country Office (CO), aim to be a bridge between Indonesia an all donors as well as maintaining our status as a trusted partner to all stakeholders.  We work in four key areas of development: Governance Reforms, Pro-Poor Policy Reforms, Conflict Prevention and Recovery, and Environment Management, with the overarching aim of reducing poverty in Indonesia.  Besides the four priority areas, UNDP Indonesia is also engaged in a variety of crosscutting initiatives focused on HIV/AIDS, gender equality, and information and technology for development.
I. Organizational Context
As a signatory of Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, Indonesia has committed to the aid effectiveness principles in particular to harmonize and align aid delivery in reducing poverty and inequality, increasing growth, building capacity and accelerating achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Following the initiative, in January 2009, GOI has launched the Jakarta Commitment signed by 22 bilateral and multilateral development partners establishing a roadmap to strengthen aid effectiveness. This roadmap defines the policy direction towards development effectiveness up to 2014 and beyond, as well as key activities.
Nonetheless implementing the roadmap requires a coordination mechanism. GOI has developed such mechanism consisting of a high level commitment at ministerial level consisting of (1) Steering Committee to provide direction for all parties and activities including donors representative; (2) Management Committee to assure effective implementation of the road map supported by; (3) Thematic Working Groups that discuss targeted achievements of Jakarta Commitment and; (4) Aid for Development Effectiveness Secretariat (A4DES) in Bappenas.
Under leadership of the Deputy Minister for Development Funding, A4DES is responsible for providing support in facilitation, coordination and monitoring of the coordinated activities to realize the objectives of the Jakarta Commitment.  With regard to it, UNDP was appointed to support the work of A4DES as part of the strategic objectives of Transitional Multi Donor Fund for Aid For Development Effectiveness (TMDF-A4DE) program.  However, the immediate transition of A4DES support through TMDF A4DE which is effective by 2010 will need to be properly managed and sufficiently planned. The following processes and interruption must be kept minimum during the transition: donors involvement and smooth communication among parties on A4DES programme, frequent contact amongst the relevant parties, information flow and closer coordination within BAPPENAS and with the respective ministries, systematic follow-up on pending decisions and implementation, not only those made by BAPPENAS but also the ones to be made by the other government agencies and development partners. In short, BAPPENAS believes that a secretariat key role to generate greater momentum in the overall A4DE framework must be maintained through the process of transition.
In line with the above, 6 (six) working group analysts positions in the Secretariat need to be filled in order to ensure the running of the working groups activities. One of the positions is Monitoring and Evaluation  Officer Under the guidance and direct supervision of the Programme Coordinator, the Monitoring and Evaluation Officer analyzes political, social and economic trends and participates in the formulation, management and evaluation of programme activities within a portfolio.
The Monitoring and Evaluation  Officer works in close collaboration with the respective Chair of Working Group, Communication Officer, IT/Data Base Associate and UNDP program staffs.
