The 37-year-old had been assistant to previous head coach Pete Steindl, who has been shown the door after failing to achieve qualification to the World Twenty20 finals.
The statement, on the Cricket Scotland website, read: "Paul Collingwood will lead the Scotland coaching team at the forthcoming World Cup Qualifying event in New Zealand, in conjunction with performance development manager Craig Wright.
"The team will be managed by Euan McIntyre together with performance analyst/fielding coach Toby Bailey, strength and conditioning coach Simon Smith and physiotherapist Mhairi MacPhail.
"All were part of the Scotland coaching and support team at the recent tournament in the United Arab Emirates, with Collingwood and Wright stepping up from their assistant coaching roles to lead the team."
