The Government of Malawi has engaged International Finance Corporation (IFC) for the development of a hydroelectric power station at Mpatamanga on the Shire River in Malawi. IFC wishes to outsource the early-stage development of the project to a specialist developer, prior to a competitive tender in accordance with applicable Malawian law.
IFC intends to select the specialist developer through a selection week to be held in Lilongwe. During the selection week, currently scheduled for 24 September 2018, the IFC team will present the project and the opportunity to partner with IFC, while participating developers will be able to present their credentials and proposals.
More information on the project, the proposed transaction structure, the process and the selection week are available from firstname.lastname@example.org. Developers interested in attending the selection week will be required to submit brief expressions of interest by 7 September 2018. These should be sent to email@example.com. IFC proposes to notify shortlisted developers by 14 September 2018.
IFC will endeavour to accommodate all interested parties at the selection week but, depending on interest, an interim shortlisting process may be necessary to ensure an efficient process. Any such shortlisting will be on the basis of IFC’s assessment of each candidate’s experience and expertise and the strength of its proposed team. As such, candidates are encouraged to focus on these aspects in their brief expressions of interest.
