The Ondo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (OSOPADEC) was established in 1999 as an interventionist agency to help channel the State’s receipts from the 13% derivation from Oil to the rapid development of the 2 oil-producing LGAs of the State. The law establishing the agency stipulates that 40% of the share of the State from the 13% derivation from oil will be provided to it. The main aim of establishing the agency is to alleviate poverty in the oil-rich communities of Ondo State especially in Ilaje and Ese-Odo local government councils from where oil exploration activities are carried out in the state.
The agency has been operating since its creation and whilst it has succeeded in creating some notable infrastructure and established a few development programs, its impact is not easily evident. The government of Ondo state, therefore, believes that the time is ripe for conducting a strategic organizational and operational review to determine the effectiveness of the agency in achieving its mandate, identify its shortcomings and recommend areas of improvement. PIND is, therefore, seeking for sector experts in the following areas to work as a team to review the current situation of OSOPADEC and recommend specific and targeted interventions that would enable the desired change to take place within a short time frame.
The purpose of this assignment is to enhance the operational efficiency of OSOPADEC and position the agency for improved organizational effectiveness and delivery of democracy dividends to the mandate areas.
