For Fund Seekers
If you are a manager or promoter of an infrastructure project, your first task it is to engage in a spectrum of mandatory activities and studies before your infrastructure project will be of interest to a potential financier. This is referred to as project preparation.
The activities in project preparation include regulatory, legal and environmental studies as well as several advisory services. Essentially, you want to get information about six key issues:
- Is there an enabling environment for my project?
- Is my project clearly defined?
- Is my project feasible?
- How will my project be structured?
- What are the transaction and closure procedures in my project?
- How will the implementation of my project be monitored?
To make this process easier, the ICA has developed a project preparation check list. You can download this check list and complete the form. You can then see where the gaps are in your project preparation tasks and this check list will keep you more focused.
You can also use the Fund Finder database to identify the project preparation funding facilities that may be relevant for your proposed project. By checking their eligibility criteria you can ensure the check list aligns with their requirements before you consider approaching them for assistance.
