The Supreme Court of Auditors of Honduras, or TSC, invites interested international consultants to present proposals for the provision of individual international consulting services, in the context of the EUROJUSTICIA programme, “promoting fast and accessible justice in Honduras”.

The areas requiring consultancy are:

  1. Consulting assistance for the Supreme Court of Auditors on conducting investigations on the presumption of unlawful enrichment: the aim is to strengthen the technical capacity of the TSC to develop and carry out investigations on “unlawful enrichment” in accordance with current legal regulations in Honduras, and best practices internationally.
  1. Consulting assistance for the Supreme Court of Auditors on conducting ethics audits: The aim is to develop and implement in the TSC a methodology for the practice of “ethics audits” on Legal Operating Institutions, in accordance with current technical and legal regulations in Honduras and models validated in other countries (England, Costa Rica, etc.) This type of audit is geared to assessing institutional ethical management, from the planning to the integration of ethics in management systems, processes and procedures
  1. Consulting assistance for the Supreme Court of Auditors on conducting information technologies audits: The aim is to strengthen the technical capacity of the TSC in developing and conducting Information Technology and Communications Audits based on methodologies and international standards. This type of audit is geared to assessing, analysing and reviewing the management and resources relating to information technologies (systems, information, hardware and software infrastructure, installations and human resources). The aim is to determine the degree of effectiveness and efficiency, safety (integrity, confidentiality and availability) and reliability of the IT environment and the information produced in supporting institutional aims
  1. Consulting assistance for the Supreme Court of Auditors on applying computer-aided audit techniques: The aim is to strengthen the the technical capacity and efficiency of the TSC in carrying out its audits on Legal Operating Institutions using internationally recognised programmes and software for computer-aided audit techniques. These programmes are used to process relevant data from information systems and databases developed on different platforms. They are able to access, extract, check, search, verify and recalculate 100% of the data without making modifications.

Financing for these processes comes from the European Union via the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation and Development (Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional para el Desarrollo, AECID), through the programme to promote quick and accessible justice in Honduras, EUROJUSTICIA.

The main aim of EUROJUSTICIA is to contribute through national efforts to combating the impunity of corruption and violent crime, and to ensure the access of the people of Honduras to an efficient, effective, transparent and reliable justice system that promotes social equity.

Interested individual international consultants should send their proposals in two sealed envelopes containing: (a) technical proposal (envelope I); and (b) price quote (envelope II). Both envelopes should be presented in a single sealed packet or envelope. More details can be found in Section XVIII of the Terms of Reference, Presentation of Proposals. The selection shall be made in accordance with Honduras’s Contracting Law and Regulations.

Technical proposals and quotes should be submitted to the address below, at the latest on Wednesday, May 10, 2016, at 1300 (Honduras local time), clearly showing the name of the consultancy.
