About the Unit

The central unit of engagement with the private sector is a “center of expertise” charged with the task of introducing and disseminating the policy of engagement with the private sector, developing practices for project implementation, and playing a vital role in the delivery of early projects. The Unit sought the support and knowledge of local and international experts. The central unit of participation is a sector of the Ministry of Finance mandated by the government to oversee and implement policy.
The unit undertook the study and implementation task and coordinated with the concerned ministries and the private sector to develop the private sector participation program, develop the executive framework of the program and develop a clear action plan. One of the main tasks of the unit is to ensure that proposals for participation projects are based on a good analysis of the actual needs and value of these projects.
In all cases, the Unit's manuals on project selection - evaluation and tendering procedures - were distributed to all participating parties. This should coincide with the establishment and launching of specialized units within the relevant ministries that have plans to implement projects through the private sector participation program.
The Central Unit for Private Sector Participation, the Center for Support and Consultancy, is an expert house in the field of partnership projects with the private sector.
