Collaborative process between expert and initiative

ICMPD will contact the Expert with proposed terms of reference, deliverable timeline, and payment rate and schedule. Daily rates will be proposed based on a location adjusted, and seniority based grid. Subsequently pursuant to an agreement a special service agreement will be issued, to which the aforementioned documents will be integral. At the end of each activity, experts will complete a report outlining the results and achievements of the overall action, highlighting challenges and opportunities for further programme improvement. The relevant team will evaluate the expert on the basis of an evaluation grid.

Payment will be disbursed upon receipt by ICMPD of a timesheet (standard format will be provided in the special service agreement) and an accompanying invoice, both documents must be approved by the ICMPD Project Officer who initiated the agreement, and payment schedules will be on a monthly basis.
