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 Facility Manager to manage the Laos Renewable Energy Facility.
The Facility will provide technical assistance and capacity building in support of Laos’ renewable energy sector.
The Facility 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 Facility Manager, subject to financial approvals, to manage the Facility and will separately contract other Suppliers for implementing each Project. It is anticipated that between 10 and 15 Projects, with a combined New Zealand investment of up to NZD10 million will be approved and implemented over the Facility term.
The Facility Manager is expected to be based in Vientiane and the role delivered by a full time, pre-agreed named individual (the Service).
MFAT expects to contract the Facility Manager for two years with the option, at MFAT’s sole discretion, to extend the contract for (up to) a further three years.
The goal of the Laos Renewable Energy Facility (hereinafter referred to as the Activity) is to increase the beneficial use of renewable energy to support economic and social development in Laos. The long-term outcomes to be achieved are:
• Improved benefits to the Laos Government from the power sector; and
• Increased economic and social development opportunities from distributed renewable energy projects
