The Government of Kosovo has received grant funding of UD$49 million (Forty-Nine Million United States Dollars) from the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) of the United States Government to support Kosovo through a Threshold Program which is designed to lower energy costs for households and businesses and to support the Government of Kosovo in its efforts to improve data transparency to spur growth, fight poverty and advance stability. The Millennium Foundation of Kosovo (MFK), the Accountable Entity created by the Government of Kosovo to implement this program and achieve the objectives of the MCC Grant Agreement, MFK intends to apply part of the proceeds toward payments under the contract for selection of an individual consultant for data quality review consultancy.

MFK is responsible for reporting data on the indicators set out in the Monitoring and Evaluation Plan (M&E Plan). The goal of the Data Quality Review (DQR) is to ensure the quality and accuracy of monitoring data and results reported from the Kosovo Threshold Program.

The objective of this DQR is to review the quality of data that are collected for the Kosovo Threshold M&E Plan, to highlight any critical weaknesses that affect the validity of the data, and to recommend concrete and feasible actions that will improve the quality of future data gathering and reporting efforts of the Kosovo Threshold M&E Plan.

The Consultant will be required to review the Kosovo Threshold indicators (listed in M&E Plan) and their data, and data collection methodologies with a view to provide MFK and its Implementing Entities (IEs) with recommendations on how to improve the quality of data used as part of the M&E Plan management.

As part of the DQR, it is expected that the Consultant will spend time at the data collection, processing and reporting sites required for the M&E Plan indicators.

The Consultant is expected to assess the quality of the data feeding into the following sets of indicators.

Therefore, MFK is seeking an independent expert for the Data Quality Review Consultancy.

The Threshold Program in Kosovo is a $49 Million grant that consists of two projects, the Reliable Energy Landscape Project and the Transparent and Accountable Governance Project:

a) Reliable Energy Landscape Project: Demand for electricity significantly surpasses supply in Kosovo, and the country struggles with the reliability of its energy supply. This project encourages greater household energy efficiency and facilitates the switch to non-electric sources of heating through a pilot activity. MCC’s investments also work to bolster private-sector participation in the power sector by exploring barriers to finance for independent power producers, and create opportunities for women to participate in the energy sector through both employment and entrepreneurship and

b) Transparent and Accountable Governance Project: Government decision-making is often opaque, leading to distrust by the private sector and civil society, and high perceptions of corruption. Kosovo’s judiciary is one of the country’s least trusted institutions. This project supports the implementation of a case management information system to make judicial information publicly available, and improvements to the collection and reporting of environmental data to the public. An open innovation competition will let the government pose their challenges to civil society and private sector stakeholders to propose creative, data-grounded solutions, which can be a model for more productive partnerships between government and civil society.

MFK now invites Individual Consultant to provide the consultant services referenced above (“Proposals”). More details on these consultant services are provided in the Terms of Reference.

This LOI is open to all eligible entities (“Individual Consultant”) who wish to respond. Subject to restrictions noted in the LOI.
