Job Description
1.0. Introduction
SNV is implementing a two-year project called Transforming Agricultural Markets (TAM), which started in August 2018, and is funded by UKAID. The TAM project aims to improve livelihoods and economic opportunity for smallholder farmers by empowering them to effect changes in the dairy and sunflower market systems through engaging with government and private sector providers.
This short-term consultancy assignment focuses on the rationalisation and harmonisation of the dairy sub- sector regulations for premise inspection and product testing with the aim of improving sub-sector competitiveness, and increasing employment opportunities and dairy smallholder farmer income.
2.0. Background
SNV, Netherlands Development Organization is an international, not-for-profit, development organization, working in 36 of the poorest countries worldwide, including 17 countries in Sub Saharan Africa. We focus on achieving impact in Agriculture; Energy; and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene. By sharing our specialist expertise in Agriculture; Energy; and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene, our global team of local and international advisors works with local partners to equip communities, businesses and organisations with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic services – empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own development.
The TAM project Theory of Change is that by working with citizens, private sector and government at sub-national level on specific, actor-led systems issues to produce data and facilitate stakeholder analysis the project can broaden understanding, build consensus, and strengthen accountability relationships for collective action to: i) make existing policies work at the local level, and to provide empirical and ii) provide written evidence for national level policy dialogue and reforms. The project aims at achieving the following impact and outcomes:
Impact: Improved livelihoods of SHFs and SMEs in the dairy and sunflower market systems Long term
outcome: Increased access and inclusiveness to basic services (production, financial, capacity services) and strengthened business environment for SHFs and agribusinesses in dairy and sunflower
market systems.
Outcomes:
a) Increased responsiveness of Government to the issues of smallholder farmers and SMEs. This outcome will be achieved through the following outputs:
b) Increased collective actions of stakeholders for the improvement of access to basic services and entitlements, and business environment. This outcome will be achieved through the following
outputs:
The TAM project focuses on making policies work for SHF and SMEs by enhancing good governance, accountability and responsiveness by government, local organisations and stakeholders in dairy and sunflower market systems.

Within the dairy market system, the project intervenes in two key result areas:
i) making cooperatives functional and ii) harmonization of regulations. In functional cooperatives the project works with 22 dairy cooperatives in Siha and Hai districts to improve delivery of services to dairy farmers through building accountability relations between cooperatives, government and private sector.
The project also works with national level actors through the National Task Force NTF lead by TAMPA to harmonise regulations in the dairy subsector in order to create an enabling business environment for a competitive dairy sector in Tanzania. The NTF members include representatives from TDB, TBS, OSHA, MIT, ML&F, TF Ltd, ASAS Dairies & TAMPA.
TAM approach aims for systemic change in targeted markets through evidence-based advocacy based on practical experience and research and sharing of data/information and evidence in a transparent way. TAM also promotes collaboration between public, private, and civil society sectors through multi-stakeholder processes and platforms, working groups, coalitions, and alliances. TAM interventions are solution-oriented aiming at addressing system issues in the sector and support stakeholder to jointly develop feasible improvements and concrete solutions.
In addition to capacity strengthening, the project supports the boundary and strategic partners in enhancing their voices to communicate key messages to a wider public in order to raise awareness about what is transpiring in the market systems, to advocate and lobby for good governance especially accountability in the delivery of services and enhancing conducive business enabling environment.

Recently the government has carried out several policy reforms to improve the business environment. These efforts include the merger of TBS and TFDA to form one organisation leading to the reduction of duplication of similar functions. The government has also made efforts to reduce regulations in the dairy sector from 38 to 28. However, TAMPA through NTF has continued with their efforts to advocate for the further reduction of the regulations and improvement of the regulatory framework in the dairy sector. In view of these efforts, the government has asked TAMPA to provide further evidence on existing regulations which are still making the sector uncompetitive. In addition to this, the government has also asked TAMPA to provide a comprehensive report, backed with clear evidence of the impact of VAT zero rating of dairy inputs. The report on VAT zero rating will be tendered by government to the parliament to support the debate on changing the legislation on VAT zero-rating of dairy inputs.

It is therefore against this background that SNV is seeking the services of an independent consultant to provide support to TAMPA and the NTF to identify regulations and evidence of the negative impacts in the sector and recommendations to government on harmonising these regulations. The consultancy is also required to support TAMPA and its members to develop evidence required to VAT zero-rate inputs for the dairy sector.

3.0. Purpose and objective of the assignment
The purpose of the assignment is to produce evidence for policy reform of the existing dairy regulations and VAT zero rating of dairy inputs.

The assignment also intends to gather key information and evidence from dairy stakeholders required to support the re-introduction of VAT zero rating of dairy industry inputs for collection, transportation, bulking and processing, which was removed in 2017. The assignment also aim to contribute to the achievement of the overall objective of the National Blueprint for Regulatory Reforms to Improve the Business Enabling Environment in Tanzania, i.e. the improvement of the business environment in Tanzania through the reduction of the regulatory burdens and risks faced by business in complying with regulations.
The objective of the assignment is to provide TAMPA and the Dairy Sector National Task Force with an analysis of regulatory challenges and evidence-based report with clear recommendations with respect to existing regulations and the re-introduction of zero rating of dairy industry inputs for lobbying and advocacy for reforms.
