To enhance quality and transparency during audits, a motion during the inaugural meeting between the RSPO Assurance Standing Committee (ASC) and the RSPO Complaints Panel (CP) on 3 March 2020 proposed to form a group of experts known as a Pool of Experts (PoE) to act as an observer during the P&C Certification audit process.

In order to materialise and implement the PoE system, a robust study must be conducted and presented to the ASC for approval. For this reason, RSPO is looking to appoint a third party Project Management Team to assist the Secretariat in developing the framework, establishing the database and guidance for future implementation of the PoE system by the Secretariat.

Interested applicants are advised to read the attached Terms of Reference (ToR) and submit an Expression of Interest (EoI) together with their profile/CV, relevant expertise, and proposal to [email protected] by 6:00 PM MYT (GMT + 8) on 30 October 2022.
