Document Summary:

This construction agreement reflects Nepal’s position as a developing country in the earlier stages of market liberalization, with limited historical private sector participation in the telecommunications sector. 

Document Details:

The RFA is relatively prescriptive, setting out the districts and premises that must be serviced and specifying minimum quality, service and technical standards.  However, within these constraints, responsibility for planning and designing the network lies with the private sector.  This PPP is therefore an example of how a government may retain significant control over projects, while recognizing and leveraging private sector technology and expertise.
