The DCED posts jobs and consultancies related to the DCED Standard on our opportunities page. If you are searching for a consultant to assist in implementing the DCED Standard, then send a terms of reference to the Secretariat at Admin@Enterprise-Development.org and we will post it if suitable.
Please note that the DCED is not endorsing or certifying any consultants by listing them here. Programmes seeking a consultant to help them are advised to make the usual enquiries about the suitability of any candidate. Some of the people listed below only have in-depth experience in one or two countries; others have extensive experience in monitoring and evaluation, but limited experience in the Standard specifically. We have highlighted below new entrants to the marketplace, who may have less experience. We recommend that clients consider teaming such people up with a more experienced consultant to start with, to provide some mentoring and international guidance.
Programmes wanting to go for formal audit are asked in the first instance to discuss their requirements with the DCED Secretariat (Coordinator@Enterprise-Development.org); not all of the consultants listed below are auditors.
