The OSCE Mission to Montenegro provides assistance to the host country to institute reforms, and to further strengthen democratic development in line with OSCE’s commitments and principles. The Mission works with national and local authorities, civil society and the media in order to build media professionalism. The Media Programme of the Mission supports efforts that allow for a constructive use of media in Montenegro.
Following the process of modernization and digitalization within the Public Service Broadcaster of Montenegro (PSB), the management of Radio Televizija Crne Gore (RTCG) expressed the concern that their current organizational model may not be adequate to address the multiple changes introduced by these processes. In a response to RTCG’s request, the Mission supports the development of a needs assessment which will thoroughly analyse the current situation.
The Media Programme therefore invites applications from highly qualified, energetic and experienced national professionals for the temporary consultancy post of Local Consultant for Organizational Needs Assessment who would be tasked, working in pair with another International Consultant on Organizational Needs Assessment, to conduct a comprehensive needs assessment of the current state of play, shortcomings and opportunities for organizational restructuring within the digitalization process of RTCG. The document shall include an overview of shortcomings in the current functioning of the public broadcaster. Examples and best practices from other PSBs in other countries that have dealt with similar organizational challenges should be presented. Furthermore, a set of recommendations and suggestions relating to the organizational setup, the sustainability, the budgeting, the cost-effectiveness and the oversight would need to be provided in the assessment. The document will serve as a baseline for identifying clear future steps (road map) for RTCG and will enable future cooperation between the Mission and RTCG.
