Technical support to promotion of the 2% designation mechanism in the Republic of Moldova

Call for Applications 

Deadline for applications: January 12, 2017 (18:00 Moldova time)

The Moldova Partnerships for Sustainable Civil Society (MPSCS) cordially invites submissions from a civil society organization (a technical expert) to provide technical support to the promotion of the newly established 2% mechanism for designations. The Program is genereously supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). 

Percentage designation mechanism is an indirect state support mechanism that serves as a supplementary source for the CSO sector in some European countries. According to the amendments adopted by the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova on July 21, 2016, the 2% mechanism allows individuals to designate 2% of their income tax to CSOs and religious organizations. On December 2016, the Government Decision approving the 2% implementing regulation was published in the Official Gazette, hence, the mechanism entered into force.

Description of Assignment:

The technical expert shall carry out the following tasks in support of implementation of the 2% designation mechanism:

   -  Suggest methodology for the promotion of the 2% mechanism among the CSOs and the potential contributors, i.e. taxpayers;
   -  Ensure ongoing support to civil society organisations through offered methodology and activities on conditions of the registration for 2% in the Ministry of Justice, reporting on use of the received funds (e.g. capacity building workshops with use of ICT and in person in Chisinau and in 3 regions of Moldova, hosting and making available in video recordings up to 5 webinars online, keeping a hotline to answer questions from the CSOs);
   -  Provide technical assistance to public officials in support of coordination on implementation of the mechanism (e.g. at least 3 coordination meetings with involved implementers);
   -  Support awareness raising on 2% among the taxpayers, CSOs and local authorities (e.g. producing infographics, printing of guidelines for CSOs and taxpayers, posters explaining the mechanisms, promotion of 2% with use of social media, new ICT tools and media)

The technical expert shall work in close coordination with ECNL and FHI 360.
