Morocco GEFF will contribute to realising Morocco’s entrepreneurial potential by providing finance for SMEs to support growth and competitiveness through Green Value Chain investments. EBRD will provide up to €60 million to Moroccan PFIs to on-lend to SMEs to invest in resource efficient equipment, providing opportunities for growth through export-oriented supply chains. Green Value Chain investments will be eligible for EU-funded grants upon successful completion of their capital investments (capex) to encourage green technology investments. The use of donor-funded grants will require the verification of completion all Green Value Chain investments.

Assignment Description:

EBRD intends to select and contract the Verification Consultant to the Assignment.

The Verification Consultant (or VC) will undertake the monitoring and verification of completed Green Value Chain sub-loans in order to confirm the final use and destination of funds have complied with the Policy Statement of the Facility.

The expected outcome of the Green Value Chain investments is to support SMEs' shift from lower value-added production to a knowledge-based, skills-intensive, and innovation focused production, and to contribute to the creation of a demand-driven, self-sustaining market for investments in high performance technologies and services supporting a green economy transition in Morocco.

The Facility aims to reach the targeted number of eligible Sub-borrowers ("SMEs"), help them adopt technologies and measures that meet specific eligibility criteria, and transfer know-how to the market. The Facility shall result in a development of a portfolio of eligible Sub-projects, verification of their successful implementation, and provision of an incentive payment.

The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:

1. To conduct Verification Reviews (VR) for all Sub-projects implemented under the Facility using the format and procedures provided by the EBRD.

2. The VC will conduct ex-post verification site visits to all complex (Assisted) Sub-projects, and to a randomly selected sample of at least 10% and up to 20% of the randomly selected Pre-approved Technology based Sub-projects, to verify proper implementation. All other Pre-approved Technology based Sub-projects will be verified as completed on the basis of a desk-based document review, confirming delivery and installation of the Pre-approved Technology based investment.

3. The Verification Review will result in a Verification Report confirming and providing sufficient evidence that the Sub-project has been completed in line with the eligibility criteria of the Facility.

4. The VC will be responsible for calculating the amount of EU-funded incentive payment due to sub-borrowers.

5. The VC will record all verification information related to financed sub-projects in the EBRD Management Information System (MIS) database. The MIS database will provide for Facility progress tracking as well as a centralised filing system for uploading of deliverables. The consultant shall maintain tracking, monitoring and reporting in MIS and ensure the use of standard forms and accurate data. The MIS will provide the necessary information on Sub-projects, generate reports to the EBRD and reconcile the records of PFIs and the EBRD.

6. The VC will report to the Operation Leader at the EBRD and will submit all reports and deliverables for approval through the MIS. The EBRD will monitor the activities of the Consultant and the PFIs.
