National Meteorological and Hydrological Services that are members of WMO are eligible and must demonstrate:
(i) substantial expertise
(ii) a track record in partnering and supporting other National Meteorological and Hydrological Services

The peer advisor is responsible for the quality and timely delivery of the advisory services against its terms of reference.
SOFF encourages collaboration among peers to deliver advisory services.
ACCESS TO RESOURCES AND COSTS
To receive funds from the SOFF UNMPTF, the peer advisor enters into an umbrella Legal Agreement with WMO that operates a pass-through mechanism. Each beneficiary country assignment requires a specific assignment agreement that includes country-tailored terms of reference for the advisory services.
Peer advisors‘ services are reimbursed on a cost-recovery basis, based on a financial proposal as part of the funding request approved by the Steering Committee.
