4. LOCATION AND DURATION

 Starting period July 2011

 Foreseen finishing period or duration October 2011

 Planning

A tentative time table is attached in Annex 1.

It is envisage that there will be:

• up to 5 working days for basic data gathering and desk research

• first up to 15 working days visit of the experts team in the field

• second up to 5 days follow up visit for face-to-face discussions with the GoM on comments provided

• up to 5 working days for final report completion, considering comments provided by GoM and Donor Community

• one day dissemination workshop for presentation of the assessment outputs, findings and conclusions, to the GoM and Donor Community.

During their first week in the Republic of Moldova the evaluation team will prepare and submit to the Delegation an inception report, which should set out the detailed time-planning of the mission programme in-country as well as the consultants’ approach to the following activities:

• fact finding/data collection/surveys;

• consultation meetings with decision makers/stakeholders;

• elaboration and design of the draft and of the final reports.

A draft PFM Performance Report Monitoring Report has to be submitted to the EU Delegation by the end of field mission. These documents will be thoroughly discussed between the experts and the GoM. Experts should be ready to adjust the documents according to the instructions received by the EU Delegation and be flexible concerning use of their time throughout the entire period foreseen by this Framework Contract. Exact timing of requested contribution from the experts can not be planned at this point of time, but experts should ensure availability to work on any working days that the Commission requests during the period of the contract. In some cases, they might need to contact other counterparts in Moldova to gather additional information, so getting a number of contacts and documents during their stay in Moldova is key for successful and responsive action from the side of the experts during the questions/updating

period.

The mission of the experts will start with a briefing at the EU Delegation and will end with a final debriefing. The experts have to document themselves on the major development strategies of the country, and in particular the PFM systems, including budget support-related issues before they start their assignment. They should be familiar as well with the key strategic and reforms documents of the GoM needed for proper completion of their tasks.

Minutes of the all meetings of the experts should be kept and delivered regularly to the EU Delegation, together with short comments written by the experts on their opinion of each meeting. The experts are expected to inform themselves about the situation in Moldova and schedule meetings with Governmental representatives, donors and other stakeholders before their arrival in Moldova. The project is responsible to schedule its own meetings. The meeting arrangements with the Moldovan authorities will be facilitated, to the extent possible, by the EU Delegation. First and last meetings should be with the EU Delegation to Moldova.
