BACKGROUND
The Government of the Republic of Zambia, through the Ministry of Finance tasked the Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) to spearhead the implementation of the Mineral Value Chain Monitoring Project (MVCMP) whose objectives include:
• review the mechanisms for the monitoring of the mining and mineral value chain from exploration to exportation;
• develop and implement the mechanisms for monitoring and facilitating the movement of the minerals within and out of Zambia; and
• Institutionalize the framework in other Government Institutions and Agencies through effective change management.
The other leading institution in the implementation of MOSES is the Ministry of Mines and Minerals Development (MMMD) as owner and user of the Mineral Production Monitoring System. The Mineral Production Monitoring Support Project funded by the European Union and housed in the Ministry of Mines is working jointly with the MVCMP to develop the system.
The MVCMP is USD10 million Project financed by the Norwegian Government, the Government of the Republic of Zambia and a Consortium of Donors managed by the World Bank.
