Ethiopia: Consultant Needed to Assess Geothermal Energy Program

Request For Proposal: Assessment Of The GSE And EEP Geothermal Data Management Program In Ethiopia

Opportunity Open Dates: March 31, 2017 – April 21, 2017

In 2016 the Government of Ethiopia passed into legislation the Geothermal Resources Development Proclamation (GRDP). The new law set forth regulation regarding the country’s geothermal resources. The proclamation called for the creation of a new geothermal entity, one that brought together the geothermal directorate of the Geological Survey of Ethiopia (GSE) and the geothermal projects team of Ethiopia Electric Power (EEP).

The new geothermal entity will report directly to the Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Electricity (MoWIE). With the creation of a new geothermal entity comes the creation of new internal policies and procedures regarding geothermal data management. It is therefore essential that intervention take place during the entity’s early stages to properly align new internal data policies and procedures with international best practices in geothermal data management programming.

This consultancy, funded by the U.S. – East Africa Geothermal Partnership, aims to improve GSE and EEP’s geothermal data management system.  The consultant will 1) provide the geothermal entity of GSE and EEP with an introduction to Geothermal Data Management 2) assess the current Geothermal Data Management Systems and Procedures 3) develop a report outlining the completed assessment and corresponding recommendations 4) provide ongoing consultancy services to the GSE and EEP geothermal entity.

Proposals should be submitted by email in PDF form to Ms. Ashley Ndir at no later than 5:00 PM PDT on April 21, 2017.
