The World Bank is assisting Local Government Authorities in Tanzania to implement a number of investments through PPP, in particular those projects that would not require any public funding (aside from land contributions) and might generate new sources of revenues for the LGAs.
As part of the project preparation, the Word Bank is seeking a firm to undertake studies that will assess the viability of the projects in light of the economic, legal, financial, market, socio/environmental, affordability and value for money factors. The studies will allow the LGAs to determine the projects viability, whether they should pursue a PPP solution for the selected facilities, and what form of PPP should be developed. The Local Government Authorities will be the Contracting Authority (CA) for the PPP projects.
