      Project to which the consultancy is contributing: European Union Border Assistance Mission to Moldova and Ukraine 

      Background: In June 2005, the Presidents of Moldova and Ukraine sent a joint letter to the EU requesting assistance for enhanced border management capacities, including the development of an international standard of border and customs control at the state border of the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. The EU responded positively to this request and an EU Border Assistance Mission to Moldova and Ukraine was established, based on a tripartite Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed on 7 October 2005 by the European Commission, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. The initial duration of EUBAM was 2 years, until November 2007.  Its mandate has been extended most recently until 30 November 2015, EUBAM Phase 10. Suggestions to amend the MoU are under discussion, and the next mandate, currently being negotiated, for EUBAM Phase 11, is slated to cover 1 December 2015 – 30 November 2017. IOM is the European Commission’s implementing partner for the EUBAM project.

      General Functions: The Head of Mission of EUBAM works under the overall guidance of the Advisory Board and the EU Delegations to Ukraine and Republic of Moldova and carries the overall responsibility for the implementation of the mandate of EUBAM and the effectiveness of the overall results and activities as well as efficiency of its operations. S/he ensures the cost-effective use of EUBAM resources and appropriate management processes and mechanisms. The Head of Mission has the overall management responsibility for approximately 215 international and national Mission personnel. S/he acts as a political advisor to the Head of the EU Delegation to the Republic of Moldova on issues related to the Transnistrian conflict.
