1. Assignment Background
The Democracy Reporting International (DRI) Libya Team works closely with municipalities and civil society partners across all three regions of Libya on local governance, participatory democracy and civil and political rights.
Due to the context of war in Libya, the Team is operating from the DRI Tunisia Office. Nevertheless, staff members and external experts are sometimes required to travel to Libya to grant successful project implementation. Moreover, a solid and up-to-date understanding of security-related developments on the ground in Libya is vital for the Team's project planning.

DRI is looking for two specific services: A - Required services (such as security consulting and security training) and B - Ad hoc services (such as security advisory services, escort services, and incident response services). Respondents can submit proposals for both A and B, or either.
