The mission of the African Professionalisation Programme (API) is to grow the capacity of accountancy professionals in the African public sector for enhanced service delivery. The API achieves this mission through developing online learning programmes and facilitating the adoption and implementation of these programmes across the public sector in Africa. The learning programmes target three audiences, each with its own learning needs:

  • Incumbents: senior officials in public financial management (PFM) roles who do not have a professional accountancy background (Accelerated Learning Programme – ALP; subject of this Request for Proposals (RFP))
  • Accounting and auditing professionals in the private sector who have an interest in PFM roles but lack exposure to the public sector
  • Students: aspiring accounting and auditing professionals who have an interest in pursuing a career in public sector accountancy

The Pan African Federation of Accountants (PAFA) is a partner in the API.

PAFA has been engaged by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) to implement a project funded by Gavi – The Vaccine Alliance and The Global Fund to strengthen accountancy and finance capacity in the public sector, particularly the health sector, in Burkina Faso. The API ALP will be used for this purpose. The API ALP is available only in English. It will be translated and contextualised for this purpose.

The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) has provided funding for the translation and contextualisation of the API learning programmes.

This RFP is for Translators interested in translating the API ALP from English to French as set forth in the Terms of Reference (ToR).
