Mozambique energy and mining ministry seeks consultants for internal review


Mozambique’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Energy, MIREME, is tendering for consultants to carry out an “institutional and functional management review” of the ministry.

According to a procurement notice published in state-owned newspaper Noticias on Wednesday, the consultants will reevaluate the mandate of MIREME, a ministry created by President Filipe Nyusi in 2015 by combining the former Ministry of Natural Resources and the Ministry of Energy.a procurement notice

The notice says the consultants will also reevaluate demand for the services of MIREME, and “present recommendations and implementation options for the short-, medium-, and long-term.”

The contract will be paid for by the World Bank under the Mining and Gas Technical Assistance Project, MAGTAP, which describes the contract as an ‘Update of Institutional and Functional management review of MIREME’.

Qualified consultants are asked to submit expressions of interest by 20 September, with a short list scheduled to be drawn up by 19 October 2017.

The pre-selection criteria for consultants are:

  • Experience in the extractive sector
  • Experience in institutional development projects
  • Experience in revision of organisational structure and functions
  • Experience in developing countries including in Africa

Last month, petroleum industry regulator INP published a similar call for consultants to help improve its organisation and management structure.
