Specific Procurement Notice
Date: October 17, 2023
Selection of an individual consultants pool for the Evaluation Panels
Procurement Reference: CMC-Togo/2023/ICS/003
The Millennium Challenge Corporation (“MCC”) is working with the Government of Togo (GoT) to develop a compact by the end of calendar year 2024. Togo was selected as eligible for MCC funding in the fall of 2022. A constraint to economic growth analysis was completed in February 2023; and the GoT elected to focus compact development on addressing constraints in the energy (high cost and insufficient reliability) and digital (high cost and insufficient use of digital services) sectors. The following types of investments concepts are being considered and will undergo additional evaluation, refinement and prefeasibility to determine which combination is best aligned with GoT priorities, is a good fit for MCC, and has the highest potential to improve the lives of Togolese people:
- Power Sector – A mix of investments in support of energy generation, transmission, distribution, access and/or institutional strengthening.
- Digital Sector – A mix of investments in meaningful connectivity, interoperable digital payment systems and the innovation ecosystem to contribute to more affordable digital access, the emergence of tech-enabled digital service solutions, and growth of the digital economy.
As part of this Compact development process, the Togo Compact Programme Implementation Unit (“CMC-Togo”) has received funding from MCC and intends to use part of these funds for payments under a Consultancy Service Contract: “Selection of an individual consultants pool for the Evaluation Panels”.
