The Economic Analysis Division (EA) of the MCC’s Department of Policy and Evaluation seeks an individual consultant for support in modeling the expected effects of projects throughout their development and refinement. The individual consultant will engage in a number of activities that will overall support the EA staff in their economic assessment of the expected impact of the projects as they are defined and refined.
The individual consultant’s tasks may include the following:
- Provide opinions on the extent to which proposed projects are likely to achieve their objectives, and the extent to which a project’s objectives are linked to the elimination of market barriers to promote free and fair competition and the freer movement of factors of production across geography and sectors of the economy.
- Provide support to or directly undertake economic modeling of the potential employment, productivity, investment and/or market organization impacts of proposed changes to regulation, administrative rules and other policies that are identified as barriers to fair competition and entry in a sector. This may include:
- Scenario analysis of policy alternatives that articulates the tradeoffs of certain policy changes that would affect market competition in a sector;
- Econometric or other analysis that quantifies likely impacts of policy changes intended to increase competition or reduce barriers to entry in sectors;
- Literature reviews of economic impacts of product and services market regulations.
Provide support to EA staff in the generation of data gathering tools, statements of work, survey or other data collection instruments and methodologies to gather any information necessary to undertake economic modeling of the market changes that would be expected by any policy changes enacted by the project that intend to reduce barriers to entry and facilitate competition in sectors.
