Leading Consultant in Sports Governance Issues
|Location :||Tbilisi, with two missions to regions, GEORGIA|
|Application Deadline :||08-Nov-19 (Midnight New York, USA)|
|Type of Contract :||Individual Contract|
|Post Level :||National Consultant|
|Languages Required :||English|
|Expected Duration of Assignment :||Up to 60 consultancy days during November 2019-June 2020, with two missions (6 days)|
The 2030 Agenda acknowledges sport as an important contributor to social, economic and human capital development. In return for public funding and support, sports organizations are expected to deliver the benefits of these developments to the wider society. In Georgia, up to 60 of the 82 recognized sport federations are funded through the state budget.
The Parliamentary Committee on Sports and Youth Affairs has recently adopted its Strategy and Action Plan for 2018-2020, aiming towards institutional capacity strengthening for youth and sport policy-making and oversight functions. One of the thematic priorities of the Strategy is to promote good governance principles in national sports administration. In practice, this translates to assisting and inspiring national sports organizations (federations, associations, unions, etc.) to increase their capacities to align with international and/or local good practices. In order to safeguard sporting integrity, both the international community and public actors have increased and compounded their efforts for better sports governance. The “Anti-Corruption National Strategy” sets the prevention of corruption in sports as one of its top priorities.
The Parliamentary Committee on Sport and Youth Affairs is committed to developing a Code on Good Governance in Sport, which would establish minimum standards/principles to be met by state-funded sports organizations. These principles shall cover four main domains – transparency, democracy, accountability and social responsibility – to mainstream good governance approaches within the sports sector. To identify the current climate of functionality, a baseline study should be performed prior to the initial legal drafting phase.
As part of this joint effort and to support the committee in this exercise, the UNDP in Georgia, through its Governance Reform Fund (GRF) Project, is seeking the services of a Consultant in the field of sports policy and sports governance to lead a baseline study and develop a Code of Good Governance for Georgian sports.
Duties and Responsibilities
The consultancy aims to strengthen the policy-making and oversight capacities of the Parliamentary Committee on Sports and Youth Affairs by a) conducting a baseline study measuring the implementation of good governance principles by sports organizations, b) providing a comparative review of good practices relating to good governance in sports of foreign countries, c) leading the process of elaboration of a draft Code of Good Governance in sports based on findings of the baseline study and good practices.
The scope of work for the Leading Consultant will include, but may not be limited to:
The Leading Consultant will work under the direct supervision of the Governance Reform Fund (GRF) Project Manager and in close coordination with respective personnel from the Sports and Youth Affairs Committee of the Parliament of Georgia. The service provider will be directly responsible to, reporting to, seeking approval from, and obtaining certification of output acceptability from the above-mentioned persons. In addition, the respective GRF team will be responsible for sharing relevant documents, contact details and other necessary information with the service provider.
Deliverables and payment Modality:
The payment schedule is given below and will be made upon satisfactory completion/submission and approval of the deliverables by the supervisor. The Consultant will be paid a lump sum in three instalments upon successful completion of the above-mentioned deliverables according to the below schedule:

Required Skills and Experience
Individual consultants will be evaluated based on the cumulative analysis method: Offerors will be evaluated against combination of technical and financial criteria. Maximum obtainable score is 100, out of which the total score for technical criteria equals to 70 (desk review and interview) and for financial criteria – to 30. Offerors that do not meet Minimum Qualification Criteria will be automatically rejected, while the rest will form up the long list. The offerors who obtain minimum 35 points as a result of the desk review will be invited for the interview. Offerors who pass 70% threshold, i.e. obtain minimum 14 points, as a result of the interview will be requested the financial proposal.
The financial proposal shall specify a total lump sum amount, and payment terms around specific and measurable (qualitative and quantitative) deliverables (i.e. whether payments fall in installments or upon completion of the entire contract). Payments are based upon output, i.e. upon delivery of the services specified in the ToR. In order to assist the requesting unit in the comparison of financial proposals, the financial proposal will include a breakdown of this lump sum amount. Maximum 30 points will be assigned to the lowest price offer. All other price offers will be scored using the formula (inverse proportion): Financial score X = 30* the lowest price offer/suggested price offer. All envisaged travel costs must be included in the financial proposal as well.
