Regional: Design, Implementation and Management of eLearning Portal for the LC2 Capacity Building Programme in SEMED Countries

 | Published December 2, 2016  -  Deadline December 29, 2016

Background: Capital markets in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean (SEMED) region suffer from a deficit of suitable issuers seeking to raise funds on the one side, and from an under-developed institutional investor base that tends to adopt herd behaviour on the other side. While sovereigns sit prominently among the very few bond issuers, equities constitute the main market-based finance instrument, in a context where private sector firms have a low probability of growth over time, a common trend in the SEMED region. Within this context, there is significant scope for fixed income to play a more meaningful role in financing private sector firms.

The development of focused and comprehensive capacity-building programme is expected to bring about an evolution in the knowledge and behaviour that constitute impediments on both the supply and demand side of financial and capital markets in the SEMED region. Only by nurturing a culture of entrepreneurship that focuses on growth and providing companies with the skills to access market-based financing sources with investors, while at the same time improving the capacity and professionalism of local providers of finance, can meaningful and lasting change be realized. This requires a sustained effort over a long time horizon but the long-term benefits of addressing these fundamental impediments will establish a strong foundation for sustainable economic development, where financial and capital markets play a greater role. Not only will a fixed income culture develop, in tandem the more traditional sources of financing such as bank lending and equity financing will benefit from the capacity building activities envisaged as part of this project. Indeed the current rather conservative bank practices mean that most lending is backed by assets, or based on the group or family wealth, rather than supported by an analysis of the company’s cash flows. This leads to a situation where access to credit is very much constrained by the house bank which favours an exclusive relationship with their clients to the detriment of innovative solutions and competition among commercial banks

Assignment Description: Within this context, the EBRD would like to engage a specialised consultancy firm or a group of firms (the “Consultant”) to design, implement and manage an e-learning programme focused on capital market skills (“the Programme”), provide the Learning Management System (LMS) platform, and source its content in accordance with EBRD requirements, as directed by the EBRD’s Local Currency and Capital Markets Development (LC2) team.

The Programme is aimed at employees, members or customers (the "Users") from the Programme partners (the “Partners”). Partners include the regulator(s), relevant ministries, the central bank, the judiciary, banks, insurance companies, asset managers, tax authorities, the stock exchange, the securities depository and trade associations.

The selected Consultant will be required to carry out the following activities:

Activity 1: Design, implement and test the website, provide the LMS and integrate it with the Website.

Activity 2: Procure the necessary learning content to be approved by EBRD, integrate it into the Website and manage the relation with the content provider(s) in accordance with EBRD Procurement Policies and Rules.

Activity 3: Launch and administer the LMS and maintain relations with EBRD, Partners and Users for the duration of three years.

The Programme will initially be launched in Morocco and then extended to Egypt and other countries in the Region. Accordingly, the project would become a regional project. It is expected that login capacity will be re-allocated within the participating SEMED countries as required.

The Consultant is expected to manage the Programme for three years; however EBRD may extend the duration for additional two years, subject to the Programme requirements, the Consultant’s performance and availability of funding.

The training material and the required structure of the Website will be communicated to the shortlisted consultants as part of the Request for proposals document. The course content, the Website and the Training Materials will be in Arabic, English and French.

Status of Selection Process: Interested firms or groups of firms are hereby invited to submit their expressions of interest.

Cost Estimate: To be determined.

Assignment Start Date and Duration: March 2017; three years with a possibility of contract extension subject to the EBRD requirements, consultant's performance and availability of funding.

The Consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the special status of the Bank as an IFI and state this to the Bank in their response to the Invitation for Expressions of Interest. To the extent that a Consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purchased in connection with the provision of services (e.g. 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 be treated as a reimbursable expense.

Funding Source: It is expected that the individual assignments will be funded through the EBRD's Technical Cooperation Funds Programme. Please note selection and contracting will be subject to the availability of funding.

Eligibility: There are no consultant nationality eligibility restrictions.

Consultant Profile: The Consultant will be a firm or a group of firms with extensive expertise and track record in the design and management of large scale eLearning platforms and capacity to work with several content providers. The team of experts will include:

Central Asian Small Business Programme (CASBP) - Technical Cooperation Programme

 | Published December 2, 2016  -  Deadline December 29, 2016

Project Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (“EBRD” or the “Bank”) plays an important role in promoting growth, employment and free-market reform in its Countries of Operation, in particular by improving access to finance for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) through the provision of on-lending funds as well as capacity-strengthening and institution-building in non-bank microfinance institutions and commercial banks. In addition, the EBRD has been successful in putting the importance of sustainable and responsible MSME finance on the agenda of domestic policymakers all over Central Asia and beyond.

The Bank now intends to establish a Central Asian Small Business Programme (“the Programme”) and to further expand the support for its overall operations in the field of MSME finance, initially in three Central Asian countries (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan) (“the Target Region”) with further countries (Uzbekistan, Mongolia and Turkmenistan) to be possibly included at a later stage. The Programme shall be built upon preceding Technical Cooperation (“TC”) provided by the EBRD to financial institutions in the field of MSME finance in the Target Region. However, it will focus strongly on centralised remote (internet-based) knowledge sharing for banks, non-bank microfinance institutions and other facilitators of MSME-finance in the Target Region (the Programme’s “Partner Institutions” or “PIs”).

Assignment Description: The Bank now intends to engage a consulting company (the “Consultant”) to assist the Bank in supporting its Partner Institutions in their financing activities with MSMEs by facilitating their access to knowledge primarily with regard to sound credit analysis, non-credit financial services for MSMEs and other relevant financing topics.

More specifically, the key objective of the Programme is to expand and institutionalize the transfer of know-how in the field of MSME finance in the Target Region via (i) systematic and electronic sharing of the EBRD’s extensive knowledge in this field; (ii) the establishment of an eLearning platform for MSME financing players in the targeted markets; and (iii) the provision of regular classroom trainings to the Partner Institutions in this region.

It is expected that the achievement of the Programme’s objectives will significantly increase the visibility of the EBRD’s activities and operations with MSMEs and strengthen the position of the EBRD as a development-oriented investor in the Target Region.

The Consultant will be expected to:

1. Develop an internet-based knowledge sharing and exchange platform (the “KSEP”) that will:

    1. target primarily the PIs’ middle managers as well as front, middle and back office staff involved in working with MSMEs.
    2. provide easy-to-understand training material through various forms of online learning such as e-learning courses, e-textbooks, webinars, video sessions and others.
    3. contain interactive online learning components with content covering a broad range of MSME finance-related topics, with a special focus on cash-flow oriented financial analysis techniques.
    4. provide access to basic financial modelling tools, references to respective regulations in the area of MSME finance and expert advice in the form of research material and discussion papers to be developed by the Consultant

The Consultant may, but is not obliged to, model his proposed solution on the successful “Knowledge Sharing Platform” (“KSP”), developed under EBRD’s “Russia Small Business Fund” (www.rsbf.org ) and use what has been developed for the KSP as a starting point. To this end, the EBRD will consider sharing the relevant deliverables under the RSBF KSP with the shortlisted consultants to the extent contractually possible.

2. Undertake a Training Needs Assessment for all eligible Partner Institutions in the Target Region to ensure, among other things, equitable and balanced representation of staff from all target countries.

3. Organise and deliver centralised classroom trainings and workshops for PI staff. These shall incorporate best-practice approaches to the various cutting edge aspects of MSME finance (including environmental and social aspects as well as agricultural and rural MSME finance), where interaction with trainers and other seminar participants is particularly beneficial. The seminars will target primarily PIs with meaningful MSME lending operations. The Consultant will deliver on average not less than one training event per month with each two training days per seminar throughout the Programme implementation period.

4. Develop and introduce of a blended learning concept. Throughout the Programme the Consultant will develop and introduce a learning concept which combines classroom trainings with online learning sessions.

5. Introduce electronic testing and certification for successful online learners. The Consultant will develop and introduce an electronic testing and certification/self-certification function/module for loan officers, credit control officers, risk managers, and other groups of PI staff.

6. Prepare and roll out a marketing strategy. The Consultant will develop and implement a marketing and branding strategy for the successful introduction of the Programme, and more specifically the KSEP, in the Target Region. The strategy shall include a series of promotional events in each country of the Target Region for introducing the platform and the centralised training opportunities.

7. Conduct diagnostic checks on PIs. At the request of EBRD the Consultant will conduct diagnostic checks of selected PIs or potential PIs through on-site visits, portfolio review and discussion with management and staff.

8. Support of EBRD’s policy dialogue. At request the Consultant will support the EBRD in its dialogue activities with domestic and international stakeholders in the sphere of MSME-lending and -promotion. This may include the participation in meetings as well as conferences/ events related to improving access of MSMEs to finance in the Target Region, e.g. with regard to identified barriers to MSME finance, the impact of laws and regulations, etc.
