Looking for a consultant with a good eye for detail who can collect and curate data related to extractive sector companies, government agencies and projects. The consultant will work closely with the research and data team at the Natural Resource Governance Institute to collect data that will be used to create a country dashboard on http://resourceprojects.org/.
The first iteration is expected to last for 2 months with subsequent iterations that build on the initial data collection. Talented upworkers will be shortlisted for additional work in the future.
The task would require regular skype or phone calls to coordinate and discuss the work. Applicants must be able to converse in English and be comfortable using spreadsheet tools like Google Sheets and MS EXCEL. In addition, selected consultants would need to send an electronic copy of the signed Terms of Reference for HR purposes.
ResourceProjects.org provides a platform to collect and search project-by-project payments to governments based on recent mandatory disclosure legislation in the E.U., Norway, U.S. and Canada. Over the last year, the team has dramatically improved its capacity to scrape and process payment data from varying formats. This year the team will continue to build secondary data sources that can be linked to payments to allow for more detailed and meaningful analysis.
