Following the approval by the Government in September 2016 of a study entitled “3Ps in Solomon Islands - Partnership for Development”, which recommended the use of PPP modalities as an option to existing public procurement practices, the Prime Minister declared that the next step is to set up the PPP Center of Excellence (COE).
- Identify necessary revisions to existing laws to provide legal underpinning to COE’s PPP activities,
- Build up PPP knowledge across target beneficiaries, identify a PPP project pipeline, and develop market interest in PPP,
- Assess funding sources for PPP projects and their budgetary implications for the Government, and
- Draft COE’s procedures, policies, etc., and assist in its staffing.
Solomon Islands’ COE in full operational mode, with at least two PPP tenders launched by 2020
