public-Private-PartnershipDeadline: 21-May-2018 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.)

The Government of the Gambia (GoTG) wishes to implement a public private partnership (PPP) to rehabilitate, operate and develop the Port of Banjul. Established in 1972, the Port is managed by the Gambia Port Authority (GPA) and is currently operating as service port. It accounts for almost 90% of the countrys trade and serves as a secondary regional hub, with volumes going to the hinterland (Southern Senegal, Guinea Bissau, Guinea and Western Mali). Throughput has grown substantially in the past decade, with a compounded annual growth rate of 7.3%. between 2007 and 2017 and 105,000 TEUs in 2017.

GoTG has requested IFC’s assistance in the structuring and implementation of the PPP transaction up to the competitive selection of a private sector Operator and the commercial close of the transaction. IFCs transaction advisory engagement will be executed in two phases, as follows: Phase 1 – due diligence phase and transaction structuring, which is expected to last an estimated 4 to 5 months. Phase 2 – market and tender phase which will last approximately 8 months. It is possible that the two phases’ activities overlap.

For the purposes of undertaking this assignment, IFC requires the services of a strategic communication consultant (the “Consultant”) to understand stakeholder concerns related to the project, provide clear and accurate information that helps alleviate apprehensions and devise appropriate strategies for GoTG during phases 1 and 2 of the project as well as post-award.
