Georgia's Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development has requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to provide technical assistance to develop a modern PPP policy framework and legislation in Georgia.
The EBRD will provide technical assistance to carry out the project. The need for such technical assistance arises from the fact that the growing demand for efficient modern infrastructure has instigated pressure for private sector participation, including private funding.
In addition, insufficient public financing and limited capacity of the state authorities to develop and modernize transport and communal infrastructure have strengthened the political determination to put the necessary legal and economic mechanisms in place in order to attract private participation and investment.
The EBRD intends to engage a consulting company to provide technical assistance to Georgia's Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development. The selected consultant is expected to undertake the following:
The maximum cost estimated for the assignment is €279,550 (US$310,477 ).
Interested parties must submit their proposals on or before 13 July 2015.
