Request for Expressions of Interest - Contract transparency in Liberia

This open call is now closed.

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), with the support from USAID, is seeking a competent and credible firm or individual to assess Liberia EITI’s compliance with requirement 2.4; this will entail conducting a comprehensive mapping of contracts disclosure, identifying the legal and practical barriers to full contract transparency, and developing a roadmap for strengthening contract disclosure in government systems. The assignment is expected to take 20 consultancy days throughout December 2021 - February 2022.

The consultant must be a reputable company/one or more individual(s) with a proven reputation, perceived by the EITI International Secretariat to be credible, trustworthy, experienced and technically competent.

The consultant will need to possess the following competencies: 

  • Technical and financial skills, including knowledge and work on transparency and governance, public finance and financial accountability, and multi-stakeholder dialogue. Preferably, proven experience related to the EITI.
  • Knowledge of the legal regime applicable to the oil, gas and mining sectors or other natural resources sectors, preferably in sub-Saharan Africa.
  • A demonstrable record of accomplishment in similar work.
  • Documentation that proves the consultant has no conflict of interest for developing this task.
  • Fluency in English is a requisite.

 

*When preparing your proposal, please be sure to include a section on potential conflicts of interest in the technical proposal. This section should identify any areas of work, including past, present or future consultancies related to the EITI, which might pose a conflict of interest. Please also describe strategies that you intend to use to minimize those risks.
