Independent midterm evaluation of the Opening Extractives programme

Request for proposals

Fecha límite


The Opening Extractives (OE) programme is approaching the midpoint of its grant with the BHP Foundation, having worked over two years with multiple stakeholders, including various government agencies, civil society organisations, and private sector actors, from a range of 10 countries, to advance beneficial ownership transparency. Progress has been achieved on beneficial ownership reforms in several of these countries and there are valuable lessons about both what has worked well and what has been challenging under the programme.

The programme is now seeking to commission an independent review designed to:

  • Assess the programme’s measures of progress and impact at national and global levels;
  • Evaluate effectiveness of the approaches taken in the different regions;
  • Surface key factors from successful implementation and lessons learned from challenging contexts to inform the next phase of the programme’s work.

The Technical Proposal should not include any financial information. Technical proposals containing material financial information shall be declared non-responsive.

* When preparing your proposal, please be sure to include a section on potential conflicts of interest in the technical proposal. This section should identify any areas of work, including past, present or future consultancies related to the EITI, Open Ownership and Opening Extractives, which might pose a conflict of interest. Please also describe strategies that you intend to use to minimise those risks.



Acerca del EITI

Creemos que los recursos naturales de los países pertenecen a sus ciudadanos. Nuestra misión consiste en promover el conocimiento sobre la gestión de los recursos naturales, fortalecer la gobernanza y la rendición de cuentas en los ámbitos público y corporativo, y aportar datos que sirvan de sustento para la creación de políticas y el diálogo multipartícipe en el sector extractivo. Al convertirse en miembros del EITI, los países se comprometen a divulgar información a lo largo de la cadena de valor de las industrias extractivas, desde la forma en que se otorgan los derechos sobre actividades extractivas, hasta el modo en que los ingresos llegan a manos de los gobiernos y cómo benefician a la población. A través de la participación en el EITI, más de 50 países han acordado a respetar un conjunto de normas comunes que determinan qué debe divulgarse y cuándo: en otras palabras, el Estándar EITI. En cada uno de los países que se ha unido al EITI hay un grupo multipartícipe, conformado por el gobierno, empresas y la sociedad civil, que colabora con la implementación del Estándar EITI.
