Assignment Title: Feasibility study on enhancing citizen’s access to administrative services at local level

Reference No.: 01/1.3/CQS

The Government of Moldova is determined to fundamentally change the way how public services are provided in Moldova through a variety of interventions for modernization of service delivery, which combat corruption, foster a customer care culture, enhance access, as well as increases efficiency in the Moldovan public administration. Therefore, one of the main objectives of the Administration Reform Strategy 2016-2020 and Government’s working program for years 2016-2018 is the modernization of public services.

The Government of Moldova has requested the assistance of the World Bank for a PAR operation, planned for 2017 - 2021 (Modernization of Government Services Project – MGSP). Major results of the operation include better quality, accessibility, and increased efficiency of selected governmental administrative services.

Under the Action Plan for Public Services Modernization Reform, 2017-2021 (Government Resolution no. 966 as of August 9, 2016, http://lex.justice.md/md/366273/), the government aims to develop and approve an institutional framework for the Unified Service Provision Centers (CUPS – Centre universale de prestări servicii) and pilot them as a mechanism for enhanced service delivery. CUPS concept is based on the one stop shop principle of services (OSS) providing access to multiple services through a single door or window.

The consulting services (“the Services”) have the purpose to conduct a feasibility study on enhancing citizen’s access to the public services at the local level.

The e-Government Centre now invites eligible consulting firms (“Consultants”) to indicate their interest in providing the Services. Interested Firms should provide information demonstrating that they have the required qualifications and relevant experience to perform the Services (required qualifications and experience of the firm, but not individual experts’ bio data).
