BACKGROUND

POLICY FORUM (PF) is a not-for profit duly incorporated limited liability company having no share capital. It is a dynamic network of 76 civil society organisations seeking to empower Tanzanian citizens to influence greater accountability in public decisions and in the use of public resources.

HakiRasilimali is a platform of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) incorporated as a non-profit company working on strategic issues around minerals, oil and gas extraction in Tanzania envisaging to become more effective in influencing extractive industries related policies, laws and practices in the country. HakiRasilimali is affiliated to Publish What You Pay (PWYP), a global membership-based coalition of civil society organizations (CSOs) in over forty countries united in their call for an open and accountable extractive sector. HakiRasilimali is also a convener of the CSO- Multi Stakeholder Group in Tanzania EITI; the group consisting of FIVE (5) constituencies –PWYP, interfaith, Gender and Disability, Conventional NGOs and Trade Unions.

On behalf of HakiRasilimali, PF seeks to hire a consultant(s) to assess and document lessons emanating from the initial two years after the enactment of the Tanzania Extractive Industries Transparency & Accountability Act (TEITA Act, 2015).
