IFC seeks advisor for port project in Haiti

The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank, has issued a request for expression of interest (RFEOI) for international technical consultants for the Haiti Cap Haitien port PPP project.

United States Agency for International Development (USAID) requested IFC to partner with them to support and advise on the implementation of a PPP project to improve operations and infrastructure at the Cap Haitien Port.

The consultants will support the Government of Haiti (GoH) to improve the legal and regulatory framework of this sector and in parallel develop a transaction for the rehabilitation of the Cap Haitien Port infrastructure.

The port sector reform is directly handled by the Director General of Autorité Portuaire Nationale (APN), the Ports National Authority, and it is being supported by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

The IFCs Advisory Mandate is divided into two phases:
  • Phase 1: (a) Due Diligence, which will consist of market demand assessment, technical, legal, environmental and social, and financial analysis, and (b) design and recommendation of potential legal structures for private sector participation, as well as a transaction structuring proposal to the GoH for the Project.
  • Phase 2: Transaction Execution Phase, which will consist of implementation of an international competitive bid process to engage a private port operator, including a promotion component.

The RFEOI was published on 15 July. Interested parties must submit their EOI on or before 20 July 2014.
