The EITI is built on the notion that natural resources such as oil, gas, metals and minerals,belong to a country’s citizens. The EITI’s mission is to promote understanding of natural resource management, strengthen public and corporate governance and provide the data to inform greater transparency and accountability in the extractive sector. By becoming a member of the EITI, countries commit to disclose information along the extractive industry value chain – from how extraction rights (granting of mining and petroleum licences) are awarded, to how different revenues streams make their way through to the Government and how they benefit the public. Through participation in the EITI process, 55 countries have agreed to a common set of rules governing what has to be disclosed and when – the EITI Global Best Practice Standard. EITI countries disclose extensive amount of data and information as required by the EITI Standard. The EITI Standard requires that data is made available in accessible forms to all users.
The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) is a global Standard for promoting transparency and accountability in the oil, gas and mining sectors. PNG has published 7 EITI Reports since the Government signed up to implement this initiative in 2014. As a EITI member country, PNG is required to publish this annual report containing the reconciliated financial data on all revenues and other benefits received by the Government from industry companies producing and exporting oil, gas and mineral commodities. Thus, PNG is now required to publish the financial year 2021 report by December 2022.
Therefore, the PNGEITI National Secretariat is hereby calling for expressions of interest from auditing firms to prepare the financial year 2021 EITI Report in accordance with the Requirements of the EITI Standard. The report preparation is scheduled to commence in April and end by December this year.
