Public Private Partnership (PPP) Project in Ghana: Transaction Advisory Services to GPHAFunded by World Bank - WB Location Ghana Status
The Government of the Republic of Ghana (GOG) has applied for a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) towards the cost of the Ghana Public Private Partnership (PPP) Project and intends to apply part of the proceeds of this credit to payments for proposed Transaction Advisory Services to the Ghana Ports & Harbours Authority (GPHA) under the Ministry of Transport (MoT).
The MoT through the GPHA has planned a number of major capital improvement and expansion projects for the Ports of Takoradi and Tema aimed at addressing the fast growing maritime needs of the country. The development and operation of some of the planned facilities and services to be provided at the seaports may require various forms of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) with the GPHA in the provision of these facilities and/or services.
The services of a Transaction Advisor (TA) to the GPHA is therefore required to:
1. Undertake pre-feasibility and feasibility studies with the principal objective of identifying PPP-viable projects, establishing the definition of these projects and advising the GPHA on the optimal transaction strategy to be employed in the realization of the said projects. The transaction strategy would clearly define the specific objects to be considered for each PPP transaction; the format of each transaction, the transaction sequence and the prioritization of the transactions for implementation.
2. Assist GPHA throughout the entire transaction process of the approved PPP business units including preparation and implementation of data rooms, road shows, comprehensive procurement documents, draft contracts, etc; as well as assistance during consultation phases, evaluation process and final contract negotiations with evaluated and selected bidders to the final execution of and agreement.
The GPHA now invites suitable Consulting Firms [Consultants] to submit their Expressions of Interest (EOIs) to be pre-qualified as a potential Transaction Advisor to undertake assessment, structuring and/or packaging of identified port services at the Port of Takoradi (the “Project”) suitable for Public Private Partnership models within the framework of the Ghana National PPP Policy.
