Since 2008, it has become clear that weaknesses in corporate governance, including inadequate oversight by the board in a number of banks, together with loose supervision from regulators, have contributed to excessive and imprudent risk-taking in the banking sector which has led in turn to the failure of individual banks and systemic problems. This is particularly critical for Tajikistan, as the financial sector is dominated by banks and microfinance institutions.

The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:
a. Review the relevant legislation related to corporate governance of financial institutions in Tajikistan and benchmark it with best practices, identifying weaknesses and proposing recommendations on how to tackle them.
b. Review the corporate governance practices in place at selected financial institutions in the country, through review of relevant corporate documentation, disclosure by financial institutions and interviews with key function holders.
c. Review the NBT's organisational structure and modus operandi, with reference to corporate governance monitoring and enforcement.
d. Draft a report drawing from all the reviews above mentioned and articulating the key actions that are considered necessary to tackle each action, with clear indications of the risks that the current practices are posing (the "Report").
e. Present and discuss the Report with the EBRD, the NBT and other stakeholders, and incorporate comments.
f. On the basis of the Report, prepare an action plan to be implemented by the NBT in order to improve the existing legal framework and the National Bank supervisory capacity.
