Republic of Azerbaijan State Committee on Property Issues Real Estate Registration Project 7435-AZ   

Consulting Services on the Selection of a Local Consultant Company for Execution of the 2014 Customer Satisfaction Survey  Reference No.: RERP/PP#59b-D5/CS/CQS/CS/06/2014

The Republic of Azerbaijan has received financing from the World Bank toward the cost of the Real Estate Registration Project and intends to apply part of the proceeds for consulting services. The objective of the project is to ensure the reliable, transparent and efficient real estate registration system, which supports the real property markets and is suitable for the management and use of State-owned immovable property. The project will improve the transparency and security of real estate ownership rights which in turn will contribute to solving the issues of the use of property and real estate as mortgage and collateral in Azerbaijan. It will accelerate transactions in the real estate market and target the reduction of costs associated with cadaster and registration of real estate. Another focus of the project is to improve the efficiency of state property management and provide continuous support to the various real estate privatization programs in the country.  Many of these goals are being supported by making real estate market information accessible through information technology and linkages with e-Government initiatives. 

The impact of the RERP is being monitored through a series of indicators, one of which is about customer satisfaction. One of the objectives of the Customer Satisfaction survey is to monitor the latter indicator. However, the survey is an integral part of the RERP Project. It is being implemented under the project subcomponent D5 and is essential to help improve the registration services provided by the State Committee for Property Issues (SCPI). This means, among others, improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the processes, and, as a result, increasing the level of customer satisfaction.

This will be the third customer satisfaction survey financed by the RERP. As in the first and second surveys, the third survey is expected to gather evidence on customers satisfaction with SCPI registration services that will be used to formulate operational recommendations to the Government of Azerbaijan, the RERP Management Unit and the World Bank project supervision team. Data collected will be analysed and interpreted by the consultant company. It’s anticipated that the results and recommendations of the customer survey will enhance the project impact and effectiveness.
