TIU (Temporary IMPLEMENTATION UNIT)
The TIU (Temporary Implementation Unit) identifies SFF projects according to established criteria, ensures adequate regional consultations and the formation of local project steering committees, oversees tendering, contract negotiation and bid award, monitors and supervises project execution, ensures the full engagement of local project committees, prepares payment certificates, maintains a register of all projects funded and assets created under the SFF, and prepares project progress reports. The TIU is expected to prepare quarterly implementation progress reports for review by the Operations Committee, and submission to the High Level Committee and Oversight Board. The TIU is also responsible for supporting the SFF public information and communication system, including website management and information dissemination through traditional communication channels (e.g. radio, print media and television).
