Project General Description

The proposed operation is a grant not exceeding UA 146,010.31 from MIC- TAF resources be awarded to the Government of Nigeria for the execution of the support project for Nigerian Extractive Industries Transparency Initiatives (NEITI). The proposed MIC-TAF Support activity is a result of the deeper engagement and dialogue the Bank currently has with the Nigerian government, complementing the delivery of the Bank’s current and planned operations and strategy in the country. This will help enhance the effectiveness of the NEITI in executing its mandate, strengthen its credibility and pave the way for the NEITI to mobilise additional sources of funding to ensure the sustainability of its ambitious work programme. The project includes a short-term consultancy assignment to review and assess the current guidelines and procedures for carrying out bids rounds and award of mining licences, identification of International best practices and development of new guidelines and procedures.

They include: Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI), Department for Petroleum Resources (DPR), Ministry of Petroleum Resources (MPR), Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Bureau for Public Enterprises (BPE), Mining Cadastral Office, Federal Ministry of Mines and Steels Development.
