Request for Proposals

Closing date

Description

This request for proposals is now closed.

The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), with the support from USAID, is seeking a competent and credible firm or individual to produce a study that  aims to build the capacity of governments and citizens in identifying relevant annexes that they should disclose to ensure comprehensiveness of disclosure of extractive contracts. A consultant will be engaged to write a study identifying the usual types of annexes, riders, addendum, and other documents that MSGs should consider for disclosure to fully adhere with Requirement 2.4 of the EITI Standard.

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.

Technical proposals containing material financial information shall be declared non-responsive. When preparing your proposal, we kindly ask you to include a section on potential conflicts of interest. 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.

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.
