Assignment Title: Consulting services for performing the survey to measure the satisfaction of the community members with social engagement process under the Project
Reference No. (as per Procurement Plan): RFP no. 6380-A15
Market approach: Open / National

The Republic of Moldova has received financing from the World Bank towards the cost of the Power System Development Project (PSDP), and intends to apply part of the proceeds for consulting services.
The consulting services (“the Services”) include carrying out a three-stage survey to determine the level of community satisfaction on the engagement process in the Project implemented by Moldova Energy Projects Implementation Unit (MEPIU). To this end, as part of the assignment, the Consultant shall elaborate a questionnaire that will cover project activities and all social engagement activities performed by the MEPIU and other stakeholders to attenuate the social impact of the Project based on information provided in the SEP.   

During the preparation stage of the Project, a Stakeholder Engagement Plan (SEP) has been developed and revised at the detailed design stage, in compliance with WB’s Operational Policies and best international practice, in order to enhance public information and stakeholder engagement procedures. The SEP provides the methodology for stakeholder identification and analysis; stakeholders engagement; disclosure of information; consultation with stakeholders; addressing and responding to grievances; and reporting to stakeholders through the project life cycle including pre-construction, construction, operational, decommissioning, closure and reinstatement/restoration.   

The immediate objectives of the survey and the analysis based on its outputs, will be as follows:
    • to find out the perception of residents/members from the Project affected communities regarding MEPIU and other stakeholder’s performed engagement activities;
    • to assess respondents’ awareness level, understanding and general attitude towards the implementation of the Project;
    • to compare the results of surveys conducted before, during and after construction works and estimate the benefits to users that were received as a result of Project implementation.

The tentative timeframes when surveys will be carried out during the main phases of Project implementation are:
    I. Survey #1 - Before the commencement of the construction works/design stage – February 2023;
    II. Survey #2 - During the construction works – tentatively February 2024;
    III. Survey #3 – At the completion of the construction works – tentatively May/June 2025.

The survey questionnaire should include, but not limited to, three sets of questions on:
    a) general satisfaction with the quality of social engagement process;
    b) degree of communities’ members awareness regarding the Project implementation;
    c) suggestions for the improvement of engagement activities, including public consultations to be conducted by MEPIU.

The results of the surveys will be reported to the World Bank as Intermediate Results Indicator for improving the engagement and communication activities to be performed during the Project implementation.
