The EITI is seeking Consultant(s) to review its governance.
A governance review is proposed to ensure that the EITI is appropriately governed and that the desired oversight is provided to the EITI International Secretariat and implementation as a whole.
Please submit your proposal and address any questions you may have about the review to Pablo Valverde at firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals should be received by us by close of business on Friday 22 May.
A draft report containing an analysis followed by recommendations should be submitted by 15 July 2015, with a final report completed in time for the results to be discussed at the board meeting scheduled for October 2015.
The EITI Board was established in 2006 and the Association of the EITI was established at its first Members’ Meeting, in Doha in 2009. A governance review was undertaken in 2011 and another brief one in 2013.
The EITI has grown considerably in recent years, with 48 implementing countries, some 1150 persons serving on EITI national multi-stakeholder groups, and some 400 working full time on the EITI. This raises questions about whether the EITI governance arrangements continue to meet the needs of the Association.
