Description The proposed TA will provide technical assistance to the Department of Economic Affairs (DEA) and participating State level public private partnership (PPP) cells to build their capacity to use public private partnerships as a mainstream strategy for delivering infrastructure services.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy ADB's Country Strategy for India (2003-2006) specifies private sector development as one of the main sector and thematic priorities. Since the private sector has to play a leading role in achieving growth targets, ADB's strategy in India is to focus on promoting an enabling environment for private sector development through (a) financial sector interventions to improve financial intermediation and resource mobilization; (b) policy reforms to remove impediments to private investment, domestic and foreign; (c) investment in public infrastructure, which also facilitates private investment; (d) public-private partnerships; and (e) investments in private sector projects.
Impact (i) improved access to basic infrastructure services; (ii) increased efficiency in infrastructure service provision
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome (i) capacity development in the PPP cell within DEA to help ramp up and implement PPP schemes effectively and efficiently, (ii) enhanced capacity of PPP cells at participating entities to prepare, evaluate, and appraise PPPs in infrastructure, (iii) Significantly improved monitoring of overall progress in PPP in infrastructure at both central and state levels; (iv) Increased awareness among potential private sector partners about the project cycle of PPP projects in infrastructure, and the expectations of Government with respect to value for money; and (v) Over the long term, an increase in private sector participation in infrastructure development and management throughout India.

Consulting Services

At the DEA: (1) 1 PPP Expert for each cell (national consultant, on an individual basis, for 36 person-months) focusing on leading the work on all aspects PPPs, including supporting DEA in refining guidelines for the Viability Gap Fund scheme; (2) 1 Management Information Systems Expert (national consultant, on an individual basis, for 36 person-months) focusing on information management; (3) two Financial Experts (national consultants, on an individual basis, for 36 person-months each) focusing on financing modeling of PPP infrastructure projects, in particular the development of Public Sector comparators; (4) 1 Public Finance Expert (national consultant, on an individual basis, for 36 person-months) focusing on fiscal risks and contingent liabilities, among others, in PPPs in the infrastructure sector; and (5) a panel of three legal firms on retainer basis (national firms, expected input: intermittent over three years but approximately 6-7 months per year) to provide legal expertise on PPPs. The project period is three years.

At the state level: Consultancy services required at the state level are for PPP experts, MIS experts, and the legal firms. Differences will arise in the orientation of the experts to the needs of the individual states, and a lessened scope and coverage. Hence, the depth of professional experience necessary could be lower/different for the non-DEA based experts. This will be specific to the individual entity that is recruiting the experts.

The identified States include: Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Jharkand, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Tamil Nade, Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal, and West Bengal.
