Call for expression of interest in an upcoming business inspections reform survey in libeia
The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, promotes sustainable private sector investment in developing countries as a way to reduce poverty and improve people’s life. In collaboration with the Government of Liberia, IFC Advisory Services is launching a “Business Inspection Reform” project. The project objective is to improve the environment for doing business in Liberia by making it easier and less costly for businesses to comply with relevant legal and regulatory requirements connected with inspections compliance.
In the initial phase of the project, a survey will be undertaken to collect data needed to underpin the reform.
Objectives of the survey:
- Collect data on the extent and nature of the burden from the standpoint of businesses.
- Collect data which will be used to calculate the compliance cost of inspections in Liberia and make comparison with other country experience.
- Collect baseline data necessary for monitoring and evaluating reform outcomes.
Sampling: The precise sampling method will be agreed when the work plan for the assignment is finalized. The sample distribution must be representative of the population distribution by sector of economy, classification of businesses by size and geographical location.
Respondents shall be from among top management of businesses.
Sample size (tentative) is 1,000 businesses.
A selected survey company will work with IFC project staff and experts to finalize the survey instruments, field-test them, conduct the survey through face to face interviews with businesses and present the data in tabular form and file.
IFC now invites eligible companies/organizations/consultants to indicate their interest in providing their services. Those interested should provide information related to their experience in this field.
Expression of interest must be delivered to: firstname.lastname@example.org
No telephone calls, faxes, or hard copies of EoI’s will be accepted.
