Head of Secretariat to the Investors Council in Georgia

 | Published April 10, 2015  -  Deadline April 30, 2015
cpvs

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development's ("EBRD" or the "Bank") operational framework for the Early Transition Countries ("ETCs": Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyz Republic, Moldova, Mongolia, Tajikistan) gives a strong focus to private sector development. The EBRD's private sector focus singles it out among the international financial institutions, and the Bank has demonstrated that it can maximise its value-added and transition impact through this approach, playing a catalytic role in promoting innovation and competitiveness. A sound business environment is vital for private sector development, and policy dialogue on the investment climate plays a central role in the Bank's engagement, as highlighted in the EBRD's recently adopted strategy for Georgia. Within that context, regular and open dialogue between the private sector and the authorities is essential: public-private dialogue can help encourage and guide much-needed reforms by the government, while providing government in turn with the necessary support from the private sector community. Following extensive consultations with senior government officials as well as with the private sector, IFIs and donors in Georgia, there is now widespread support to launch and support the Investors Council ("IC"). Through the IC initiative, the Bank will facilitate dialogue between the government and the private sector in a more systematic and sustainable manner. The IC will function as an independent body with the objective of assisting the Government of Georgia in developing policy related to the investment climate through a structured and effective interaction with the private sector. A permanent Secretariat (the "Secretariat") for the Investors Council needs to be established to underpin the effective functioning of the Investors Council. The EBRD now seeks to retain a Head of Secretariat (the "Consultant") who should have a deep understanding of both public and private sectors and experience of working at high levels in both domains (the "assignment"). The Secretariat will be staffed with a team of professionals and provided with other resources in order to ensure that the IC functions in a consistent, transparent and effective manner. The Head of Secretariat will be responsible for coordinating with key counterparts in the Georgian government, including the Prime Minister's office, the Ministries of Finance, Economy, Energy, Agriculture, Regional Development and Infrastructure, and the Private Sector Ombudsman of Georgia. The tasks of the Head of Secretariat will, inter alia, include the following: - Develop and propose an appropriate structure and organisation of the Investors Council. - Draft the Rules of Procedure for the IC for approval by EBRD and the IC's permanent members. - Make recommendations for regulations, institutional improvements and/or structures to be created and/or reinforced to enable the IC to function effectively. - Identify key impediments to investment by local and foreign enterprises, as well as the main drivers and agents of reform, for consideration by the IC. - Identify upcoming pieces of legislation related to the investment and business climate and solicit the views of the public and private sectors for discussion at the IC meetings. - In consultation with the IC's permanent members and the Bank, prepare an annual work plan for the IC’s approval. - In collaboration with the IC's members, agree on and prepare the agenda, including ensuring that appropriate documentation is provided, to be discussed at IC meetings and its working groups. - Present the conclusions and recommendations of the IC and/or its working groups to the relevant government bodies, private sector representatives and the Bank. - Ensure that the activities and recommendation of the IC are publicised, including through the IC's website and social media as appropriate. - Identify which agencies (donors, etc) that are present in the country can support analytical work on specific issues raised by the IC and coordinate the work with those agencies and other stakeholders in working groups. - Build the capacity of the Secretariat's professional staff through day-to-day work as well as participation in workshops and conferences organised by various organisations (eg EBRD, World Bank, bilateral agencies). - Maintain regular contact with the Bank and seek the feedback of relevant authorities/bodies, the private sector, as well as international financial institutions and other donor organisations. - Prepare quarterly reports on the IC's activities and submit them to the Bank's RO and specified staff at Headquarters. - Summarise the achievements of the assignment in annual reports to the Bank copied to the relevant government bodies involved in the process. - Manage the day-to-day operations of IC from inception to the end of the assignment period, including all administrative duties, eg rent, employment, supplies, etc. Reporting: - The Head of Secretariat shall report to the Bank (Resident Office and Headquarters) every quarter on its activities and make recommendations to the Bank on further actions. The reports will include minutes of Council meetings. The first report to be submitted on 31st August. - The annual reports to be submitted in May 2016 shall include the description of the achievements of the assignment to-date. Assignment Start Date and Duration: The assignment is expected to start in May 2015 and last two years, subject to satisfactory performance of the Consultant, business needs and availability of further funding. Note that this is a full time-role and the Consultant is expected to be resident in the country. Value Added Tax (VAT): The Consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the Bank’s special status as an International Financial Institution and state this to the Bank in their response to this notification. To the extent that a consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purchased in connection with the provision of services (eg VAT on airline ticket) which is not otherwise recoverable by the Consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the Consultant of such expenses shall treated as a reimbursable expense. Funding Source: the contract will be financed through Bilateral donors and/or EBRD Shareholder Special Fund. Eligibility: There are no eligibility restrictions Consultant Profile: An individual is sought. Firms may propose candidates but the evaluation will be based on the skills and experience of the individual and not the firm. Candidates should have the following qualifications and expertise: - Background in business, economics, law or related field, with preferably at least one postgraduate degree in one of these subjects - Ideally at least 10 years of relevant work experience at senior level, preferably both in the public and private sectors - Fluency in written and spoken Georgian and fluency in English will be considered an advantage - Experience of working with government organisations and good knowledge of relevant legislation.
