Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

An international consulting firm will provide a team of international and national consultants to deliver the TA outputs. The international consultants must have in-depth experience in power sector settlement systems and power trading regulations. The local experts must have substantial experience in the power sector, including the technical, commercial, legal and regulatory issues influencing the sector. 23 person-months of international consulting and 45 person-months of national consulting inputs are envisaged during the estimated 18 month duration of the TA project. The consultants will be an integral part of the CPPA-G's initial operations and primarily based in Islamabad.

Individual consultants (legal and market/financial experts) have been engaged. The recruitment of a consulting firm and the remaining individual consultant requirements are ongoing.
