Design and Manage a Datathon

Request for Proposals

Closing date


The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), with the support from USAID and in collaboration with Carbon Tracker and NRGI, is seeking a competent and credible firm or individual to design and manage a Datathon in the first quarter of 2022 to model the use of data and develop tools for using data to address challenges related to the energy transition. 

The overall purpose of the planned datathon is to encourage innovation in the use of EITI and extractives industry data to contribute to policy and public debate on energy transition pathways. Specifically, the planned event responds to the potential for EITI multi-stakeholder groups – who are familiar with both the data and broader context of the sector – to prompt governments to use extractives data in energy transition planning. It also responds to the potential for civil society, the media and other parties to use EITI and extractive sector data to ensure that national debate on transition pathways is grounded in evidence.

The consultant must be from 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. Proposals should be submitted following the guidelines noted in the attached terms of reference. 

A consultant will be selected following a quality- and cost-based selection procedure.

Consultants should submit:

  • Technical Proposal, outlining: (a) the experience of the consultant/s, (b) the proposed methodology and work plan in response to the Terms of Reference (TORs) (c) at least 3 examples of similar previous projects and (d) the key experts’ qualifications and competence.

Please note that the contracting party for this work will be the EITI, which is the lead grantee for the programme.

About EITI

We believe that a country’s natural resources belong to its citizens. Our mission is to promote understanding of natural resource management, strengthen public and corporate governance and accountability, and provide the data to inform policymaking and multi-stakeholder dialogue in the extractive sector. By becoming a member of the Extractives Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), countries commit to disclose information along the extractive industry value chain – from how extraction rights are awarded, to how revenues make their way through government and how they benefit the public. Through participation in the EITI, more than 50 countries have agreed to a common set of rules governing what has to be disclosed and when – the EITI Standard. In each country that has joined the EITI, a multi-stakeholder group, composed of government, companies and civil society, supports implementation of the EITI Standard.
