The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), invites submission of responses from suitably qualified and experienced organisations or consultants (including consortia) for the role of Programme Manager to implement the Myanmar Renewable Energy Programme.The Programme will provide technical assistance and capacity building in support of Myanmar’s renewable energy sector.
The Programme will be a portfolio of individual renewable energy sector initiatives (Projects) that will be progressively identified, scoped, agreed and implemented under a responsive and adaptive development assistance process over a five-year period.
MFAT expects to contract the Programme Manager, subject to financial approvals, to manage the Programme and will separately contract other Suppliers for implementing each Project. It is anticipated that between six and ten Projects, with a combined New Zealand investment of up to NZD15 million will be approved and implemented over the Programme term.
The Programme Manager is expected to be based in Yangon and the role delivered by a full time, pre-agreed named individual (the Service).
The goal of the Myanmar Renewable Energy Programme initiative (hereinafter referred to as the Activity) is to increase the beneficial use of renewable energy to support economic and social development in Myanmar. The long-term outcomes to be achieved are:
• increased local economic and social development opportunities arising from distributed renewable energy projects; and
• increased benefits to Government of Myanmar from the sustainable development of Myanmar’s renewable energy resources for power generation
The Programme will have two stages:
Phase 1 Activity design has been completed with three Projects selected for implementation over the first two years, subject to financial approval. It is expected that these Projects will be about to begin or under implementation by the time the Programme Manager is deployed to Myanmar.
Phase 2 may be a continuation of phase 1 Projects or new initiatives identified and planned by the Programme Manager. The Programme Manager is expected to prepare the Activity design, as per MFAT’s template design document, for this second phase.
MFAT expects to contract the Programme Manager for two years with the option, at MFAT’s sole discretion, to extend the contract for (up to) a further three years
