Planning and Development Department
Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
Public Private Partnership Specialist
Scope of Work
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governance Project (KPG) aims to support transitional activities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province to promote democratic processes, strengthen the ability of provincial government to be responsive to citizen needs, and create opportunities for gender equality and women’s empowerment thus bringing positive changes in attitude, perceptions and behavior about the quality of governance in the province. The project will promote the success of the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (GoKP) and its reform agenda by engaging directly with the provincial departments, sustaining public engagement and strategic communications, and providing integrated assistance “packages” of activities that support specific GoKP objectives.
The Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has promulgated Public Private Partnership (PPP) Act 2014 to provide the participation of private sector in financing, development, operation and maintenance of infrastructure and development projects as well as other related services of Government through concession contracts in PPP mode. In addition, the Act also outlines the establishment of institutions to regulate, monitor and supervise the implementation of PPP contracts.
As a startup support, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has established a PPP Unit within its Planning and Development Department (P&DD) in order to contribute towards development of high quality PPP projects in the province. P&DD, in turn, has requested for provision of Technical Assistance for its PPP unit focusing on different issues related to PPP projects. These projects may be stand-alone projects initiated by the Provincial Government and they will also include the ones developed under CPEC. KPG project is of the view that provision of relevant Technical Assistance will enable P&DD to play its role more effectively especially in dealing with PPP projects given the emerging challenges under CPEC and the PPP regime which will be initiated under the PPP Act 2014. The TA will also provide support in establishing a favourable framework to promote and facilitate the implementation of privately financed infrastructure projects and will lead to greater transparency, fairness as well as long term sustainability. The TA will also lead to identifying impediments as well as solutions for award of PPP contracts and their regulation, monitoring and supervision. It is expected that these PPP projects, once completed, will contribute significantly to the economic and social development of the province and its citizens by providing numerous opportunities for trade, commerce and employment. This will lead to more prosperous society thus increasing communities’ resilience to violent extremism.
This Technical Assistance will support the P&DD in establishing a favorable framework to promote and facilitate the implementation of privately financed infrastructure projects which will be under CPEC as well as a standalone initiative.
