The newly formed African Competition Forum (ACF), whose primary members are Competition Authorities from African countries, is entering its scoping phase. The objective is to carry out an international needs assessment (continent wide) and determine a plan of activities and organizational structure for the operational phase of the ACF. The scoping phase is being managed by the ACF Interim Steering Group under the Chairmanship of Mrs Mona Yassine, Egyptian Competition Authority. A formal Request for Offers for a consultant Coordinator to manage this exercise will shortly be issued. The consultant is expected to provide approximately 6 months of input over the next 8-9 months, and must fit the following profile: an expert in competition policy with PhD in economics or law of competition and/or at least 7 years relevant experience, able to provide full- or nearly full-time input over the relevant period, fluent in French or English (preferably both), and currently resident in Egypt, Kenya, Zambia, South Africa, Senegal, Tanzania or Morocco.
If you fit this profile and are interested in responding to the Request for Offers please write to Mrs Mona Yassine ([email protected]) and Susan Joekes, IDRC Middle East and North African Regional Office ([email protected]). The Request for Offers will be issued by Canada’s IDRC which, in collaboration with UK DFID, is providing funds for the ACF scoping phase (see www.idrc.ca/competition).
