sharing in governance of extractive industries
REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST -(Oil & Gas Sector Governance Consulting)
The Ghana Oil and Gas for Inclusive Growth programme (GOGIG) is a five (5) year UK Department for International Development (DFID) funded initiative being implemented by Oxford Policy Management Limited (OPM). The objective of the programme is to support Ghana in maximizing the potential of the oil and gas sector to promote inclusive growth. The programme also forms part of the UK Department for International Development (DFID) delivery on the G8-Ghana partnership on extractives launched by President Mahama and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in June 2013. The programme started in December 2014 and will run until November 2019 GOGIG is designed to support the development of technical capability within government, and also to support improved accountability which is necessary to provide incentives for institutions to sustain good governance.
The programme aims to achieve four (4) inter-related objectives:
Strengthening regulation of the sector. Clear policy, robust legislation and an effective and accountable regulatory body are necessary prerequisites to regulate private sector operations, and ensure that the best possible development progress is achieved from the use of natural resources.
Improving revenue capture is critical to maximising the direct benefits from the oil and gas sector. The Government’s ability to do so will depend on the clarity of the fiscal regime and the technical capacity of authorities to collect royalty payments and tax revenues.
Improving revenue management is important to ensure transparency and avoid adverse macroeconomic consequences associated with natural resources windfall gains, such as drawing too heavily on revenues in times of high oil prices to meet budget deficits, and the so-called Dutch disease (large inflows of revenue associated with the resources extraction leads to an appreciation of the real exchange).
Enhanced sector oversight means authority being held to account by an informed civil society. It requires strong linkages and inputs from objectives 1-3 so that actors’ can create an agenda for holding government to account Purpose of Call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) The purpose of this call for EOI is to create a pool of consultants to serve as a first point of call for selection to deliver technical assistance to the programme, including the programme partners.
