Project Preparation Checklist
When first considering an infrastructure project, and before a potential financier will begin to consider offering support, project promoters and developers need to compile information around six key issues:
- Is there an enabling environment for my project?
(e.g. Is legislation in place to enable my project to go ahead? Is the regulatory framework supportive?)
- Is my project clearly defined?
(e.g. Have the project outputs been identified? Who are the partners and project champions? Is there an action plan?)
- Is my project feasible?
(e.g. Is there organisational & financial capacity to sponsor my project? Has financial modelling been completed?)
- How will my project be structured?
(e.g. Will it be a public, private or public/private project? Is there a legal structure in place?)
- What are the transaction and closure procedures in my project?
(e.g. How and when will all the documents be signed, covering project financing, technical/engineering aspects, legal matters etc?)
- How will my project implementation be monitored?
(e.g. How will project progress be monitored and evaluated? Can my project adapt to changed circumstances?)
