Overview

Global Communities is implementing the USAID funded Decentralization Offering Better Results and Efficiency (DOBRE) program in Ukraine.  Launched in 2016, the program is helping leaders of newly formed Consolidated Communities (CC) to effectively manage resources, increase the quality of public services, stimulate local economics, and improve citizen engagement. DOBRE has helped communities in guiding community stakeholders through a participatory strategic planning process that engages citizens, identifies issues, allocates resources, and creates and implements programs that address priority needs of the communities. 

DOBRE Program operates in 7 target Oblasts: Dnipropetrovsk, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kharkiv, Kherson, Kirovohrad, Mykolayiv, and Ternopil. Since June 2020, DOBRE Program started operating in three more Oblasts: Zaporizhzhia, Chernivtsi and Chernihiv. DOBRE is working with consolidated communities providing support in several components, including Local Economic Development (LED) in which the Consultant will be a part of.

In Local Economic Development area DOBRE provides assistance to communities through workshops, conferences, meetings and tailored technical assistance by LED experts and consultants. DOBRE has facilitated the creation of the LED Consultancy and Advisory Steering Committees, helped develop Community LED Action Plans, and organized community resource data in Community Economic Profiles, and developed at least 3 priority LED projects with each community.  DOBRE co-funds some of the projects to support local economic development in targeted CCs. The Consultant will be part of DOBRE LED team.

Under this Terms of Reference DOBRE is looking for a Consultant who will develop brief legal and technical reports for local self-governance bodies on a process how to transfer, access, use, and maintain a municipally-owned equipment by local NGO and/or cooperative members and partners in DOBRE partner communities.
