Results to be achieved by the Contractor are detailed information on legislation and policy measures in selected services sectors based on questionnaires provided by the CEFTA Secretariat.

Type of services provided

The Consultant is expected to compile answers on detailed questionnaire in selected services sectors. This also includes documenting answers, and providing for references to relevant laws, regulations or policies. The legislative acts need to be consulted in order to acquire information.

The uploading of answers to the questionnaire will be performed through a web-based form. The services sectors which legislation screening is asked for are: financial services (encompassing banking and insurance subsectors), telecommunications (encompassing fixed, mobile and internet services), distribution (retail and wholesale), transportation (encompassing air, road, rail and shipping subsectors) and professional services (accounting, auditing, legal, engineering, architectural), construction services, and computer and ICT related services. The compilation of data is the solely responsibility of the Consultant. The consultation of the CEFTA Contact Point or relevant ministries through CEFTA channels for this assignment is not envisaged.
