Project Description

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) wishes to engage a Consultant to advise The Deposit Guarantee Fund of Ukraine (“DGF”, the Fund) on implementation of restructuring measures to address the DGF’s insolvency and bringing its operations in compliance with the EU Directives #49 and #59 (the Directives). Successful restructuring of the DGF’s debts and the Fund’s sustainable operations in accordance with the Directives will support the financial stability and increase confidence in the country's banking system, thus building upon EBRD’s extensive work done since 2014 in support of the financial sector reform in Ukraine. The technical cooperation (TC) deployed by the EBRD to date has consisted of a diagnostic assessment of the DGF’s operational framework and internal challenges, followed by a second stage to enable and enhance its capacity for implementation of new competencies and responsibilities required by legal and regulatory framework. The second stage of EBRD’s TC assistance is expected to conclude in December 2018. The proposed TC will build on and consolidate the achievements of the first and second stages of TC support provided to date, as a result of which the DGF has upgraded its organisational capacities and procedures, developed the IT infrastructure and policies, improved the asset sale and disposal processes and clarified its legal position on various asset management/disposal issue.

The objective of this Project is to assist the DGF in enabling and enhancing its capacity through practical assistance, expertise, advice, and resources for supporting on-going activities and implementation of new competencies and responsibilities required by recently approved legal and regulatory framework and building related in-house expertise and capacity. In particular the Consultant will be expected to:

1. Restore and enhance the Fund’s solvency in the medium and long run;
2. Bring the DGF into full compliance with the EU Directives #49 and #59.

Any competitive selections for business opportunities relating to this project will be published on the EBRD's website: Consultancy Procurement Opportunities.

Access to Information Policy (AIP)

The AIP sets out how the EBRD discloses information and consults with its stakeholders so as to promote better awareness and understanding of its strategies, policies and operations following its entry into force on 1 January 2020. Please visit the Access to Information Policy page to find out what information is available from the EBRD website.

Specific requests for information can be made using the EBRD Enquiries form.

Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM)

If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g., through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s accountability mechanism.

The accountability mechanism independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.

Please visit our webpage to find out how to submit a complaint through the confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. We are available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of complaints. Complainants’ identities may be kept confidential upon request.

Please note that after the appointment of the new mechanism Head in 2020, the revised Project Accountability Policy and Guidance will come into effect to guide case handling.
