Suriname Extractive Industries Technical Assistance Project / P163612
EGPS Grant No. TF0A6097
Assignment Title: Consulting Services
Reference No. (as per Procurement Plan): TF0A6097
The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) is an international initiative to which the Government of Suriname applied and was formally approved as a member on May 24, 2017. Even though the application is formally filed by the Government, it is a participatory process involving Government, Private Sector and Civil Society. Therefore, the EITI Suriname Multi-Stakeholder Group (MSG) is in charge of leading the EITI implementation in Suriname.
To support Suriname’s participation in EITI towards more transparent and efficient management of its mining and oil sectors, the government of Suriname received a grant from the Extractive Global Programmatic Support (EGPS) Multi-Donor Trust Fund through the World Bank. The project is a pioneer in two senses: it is the first donor financing mechanism put in place in support of the EITI in-country, and it is the second Recipient-Executed grant put in place in recent times since Suriname re-engagement with the World Bank. The ultimate beneficiary of the Project is the entire population of Suriname in that it should better take advantage of the national mineral resources through improved transparency in revenue and sector management.
The project seeks to hire an Event Management Consultant Firm to Support the Execution of Citizen Communication Outreach and Training on EITI in Suriname who will be responsible for providing technical assistance services.
