Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

1. To date, the TA has engaged 1 consulting firm (Rebel Group) for Thailand; 4 individual consultants (legal, financial, procurement, and government support and risk management specialist) for Viet Nam; and an international PPP expert for Lao PDR.

2. Rebel Group International BV (Rebel Group) is providing support to the Government of Thailand State Enterprises Planning Office (SEPO) PPP team to assist in developing implementation guidelines, rules and processes in support of the country's PPP law and policy. They are also supporting institutional capacity development within SEPO. Due to the procurement and implementation delays (due to instability in Thailand last year), contract with the consulting firm (Rebel Group) was extended by 12 months at no additional cost. Their current contract runs until 30 September 2015. Work on this contract has been suspended while SEPO works with ADB to refine the outputs and deliverable the government desires.

3. In Viet Nam, the TA supported the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) and Ministry of Finance (MOF) in conceptualizing the viability gap funding for PPPs: an inter-agency workshop on the findings and recommendations of the analysis on the viability gap funding for PPPs in Viet Nam was conducted on 20 January 2015.

4. In Lao PDR, an international PPP expert has been engaged to respond to government's request for an in-house consultant to support MPI staff in implementing agreed-to provisions of the policy-based loan, L-3205, Governance and Capacity Development in Public Sector Management Program, and pilot PPP project initiatives under parallel grant G-0309 of the same program. The Government of Lao PDR has requested assistance in coping with the comprehensive PPP enabling environment agenda and advising the implementing agencies on a growing number of solicited and unsolicited proposals for PPP projects.
