How does Eco-Consul Expert Network (EEN) WORK?
Eco-Consul seeks experts (on short-term contracts) in the field of environmental and engineering studies. The Concept of our Eco-Consul Expert Network (EEN):
Eco-Consul engages experts under individual contracts to work on short-term projects as consultants. Those consultants would work temporarily on projects (this is not a full time or part time job). The nature of the work is consisted of results-oriented tasks such as: writing a report or analyzing data or surveying sites or reviewing a report, or other studies related tasks.
The nature of some reports needs so many consultants in various areas. One consultant would cover a small task in his own field of study, another would review, a third would combine, analyze, and edit. However, some of our studies would hire more than a ten consultants.
To illustrate, for one big project, we might hire more than twenty consultants from our Eco-Consul Expert Network (EEN). The type of projects are varied from a very small plant or industry or a mechanical workshop to build an airport or seaport or establishing an industrial city or establishing a resort island.
The experts might work in one or more of these types of Projects:
Infrastructures, Power plants, Bridges and Tunnels, Railways construction, Gas stations, Incinerators, Landfills, Steel industry, Pesticide industry, Wastewater plants, Plastic industry, Packaging industry, Slaughterhouses Tanneries, Petrochemical industry, Food Industry, Storages Fertilizing industry, Oil refinery station, Agricultural projects, Chicken Farms, General Workshops, Mining activities, Oil & Gas Field Exploration, Parks, Resorts, Hotels, Central Malls, Seaports, ,…etc.

After submitting the application (1) and passing the screening processes (2, 3), the individual consultant would be listed in our Eco-Consul Expert Network (EEN). (4) Eco-Consul is working on establishing its own Eco-Consul Expert Network (EEN) in the field of various environmental and engineering studies. To build a trust between the individual consultants and our EEN, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for Cooperation shall be signed by the two parties (5). When a project (i.e., capacity building or environmental impact assessment project) arises raises in the field of one of our consultants. A draft contract would be sent to the specific consultants with full description of the tasks, time, nature of deliverables (TOR) and the payment (6). Signing a consulting contract between the two parties is essential to start the project (7). After submitting the report or the task (as in the contract) (8), a reviewing process would be conducted (9) to approve the task and submit the payment to the consultants (10).
