Consultancy - Market readiness analysis

The OECS has partnered with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to implement a sustainable public procurement initiative in the Eastern Caribbean. The objective of this initiative is to mainstream sustainable public procurement practices in the region through knowledge dissemination, capacity building and the development of a sustainable public procurement policy, action plan and related tools, such as guidelines. 

In order to support the fulfillment of this initiative, UNEP’s Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (ROLAC) is recruiting a consultant to carry-out a market readiness analysis for the sustainable public procurement of construction materials in three pilot OECS countries (Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica and Grenada). 

More specifically, the market readiness analysis will:

  • Assess the existing productive capacities for sustainable construction materials;
  • Analyze the potential responsiveness and competitiveness of the market and the national business sector to potential sustainable public procurement tenders for construction materials;
  • Help define sustainability criteria for the procurement of sustainable construction materials and identify the corresponding certification or verification instruments and tools, as well as gaps; and 
  • Provide recommendations for the progressive introduction of sustainability criteria in the public procurement of construction materials, based on market readiness.

The consultant carrying-out these activities will be home-based. The expected duration of the consultancy is 2.5 months, commencing in late October 2020.
