Pre-qualification round PSOM 2004 Sri Lanka started

Senter International, the implementing agency for economic development programmes of the Dutch government, has recently launched the first pre-qualification round for PSOM 2004 in Sri Lanka.
Tender Instructions (TI) and other information on the PSOM programme in Sri Lanka can be found on its website www.senter.nl/psom. All interested Dutch companies can, together with their partner(s) in Sri Lanka, submit their pre-qualification proposals to Senter in The Hague. The deadline for the submission of these proposals is set at 1 March 2004, at 12.00 PM.

What is PSOM?

The Netherlands Minister for Development Co-operation, has identified the private sector as the engine of economic growth and job creation. Investments in the private sector in developing countries are expected to contribute significantly to the alleviation of poverty, provided certain conditions are met.

The Ministry has therefore initiated the Programme for Co-operation with Emerging Markets (PSOM) in order to share some of the initial financial risks that companies face when investing in new products and/or technologies in emerging markets in developing countries. As of January 2003 the PSOM has been revised and will be continued on a more structural basis, aiming at some 60 investments per year in 16 countries.

PSOM co-finances pilot projects, which are to catalyse long term investments and/or a lasting trade relation between the parties. PSOM funds are made available to consortia of Dutch companies and companies of the host country interested to undertake such an investment and trade project. A typical PSOM-project involves a mix of technical assistance, hardware supply and installation, marketing, demonstration and training. PSOM projects usually try out –on a pilot scale- a new line of production or production technology to see whether it is commercially feasible in the country concerned and whether (export) quality standards can be attained. Investors are expected to observe a high standard of corporate social responsibility.

IMPORTANT:

  1. The Dutch partner should be the leading partner and will be the main contractor towards Senter in case of qualification. This requirement is mandatory and will be strictly adhered to. All information on the tender for Sri Lanka and the tender instructions can be found on the PSOM web-site (see above), from which the instructions can be downloaded.
  2. Senter is not the right organisation to assist in the match-making process. If companies in Sri Lanka are interested to find a suitable commercial partner in the Netherlands, they are advised to undertake a survey of the Dutch market. A visit to the Netherlands in order to investigate the opportunities is recommended. The trade agency of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (EVD) might be of assistance in this process. PSOM is designed for existing trade relationships between Sri Lankan and Dutch companies. PSOM enables these partners to strengthen their cooperation, by means of co-investing in an innovative pilot project in Sri Lanka.

If interested companies in Sri Lanka have any questions on the tender instructions for this PSOM tender in Sri Lanka, they can contact

Mr. Ruud P.M. van Wensen.
