Project Description:
Business inspections in Serbia lack overall coordination, integration, standardisation, and oversight. For this reason in April 2015 the Serbian Parliament adopted the new umbrella Law on Inspection Oversight (the 'Inspections Law') and established an inter-ministerial coordination body, the Coordination Commission for Inspections Reform (the 'Coordination Commission'), to coordinate the Inspections Reform Action Plan. 

Under Article 12 of the Inspections Law, the Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self-Government ('MPALSG' or the 'Client') is required to establish a 'Support Division' to support the Coordination Commission.

The MPALSG has now requested the EBRD to provide technical assistance for the establishment and operation of the Support Division by providing funding for the professional staff required to ensure its effective functioning.

Assignment Description:
The Client now intends to retain a consulting firm or group of firms (the 'Consultant') to provide a team of qualified experts who will establish the Support Division to the Coordination Commission and will facilitate the implementation of the Inspections Law across the 39 different inspectorates and 12 ministries involved (the 'Assignment').

The expected outcome of this Assignment is the implementation of the Inspections Reform Action Plan within the potential three years of operation of the Support Division. 

The selected Consultant will support the Coordination Commission and a number of sectoral working groups providing advice and facilitating the implementation of the initiatives and decisions of the two bodies of the Coordination Commission. The Consultant will provide the following deliverables and indicators of achievement by the end of the Assignment:

(i) Contribute to the harmonization of the sectoral legislation with the umbrella Law on Inspection through the delivery of at least 5 (five) comments and opinion notes to the Coordination Commission;
(ii) Participate in designing at least 1 (one) training and 1 (one) curriculum for the professional development of the inspectors;
(iii) Deliver preparatory analysis and documents for at least 7 (seven) meetings of the Coordination Commission; and
(iv) Support the implementation of the unified inspections information system (e-Inspector) through the organisation of at least 4 (four) focus groups in cooperation with the MOPALG and the vendor of the system; and
(v) Support the Coordination Commission in drafting 3 (three) quarterly progress reports to the MPOLAG on the status of the implementation of the Inspections Law.

The Consultant will be responsible for the quality and timeliness of work and deliverables to the MPALSG.

The Consultant will be provided for the duration of the Assignment with furnished office accommodation at the Client's offices in Belgrade free of charge.
