The aim of the detailed preparation phase is to seek initial approval of the relevant public authorities in view of the project procurement. Such approval should support the development of the project as a PPP. The approval of the main project features is an important prerequisite since project procurement is a resource-intensive undertaking.
Detailed preparation work is necessary at two levels. We refer to these as (i) getting organised and (ii) finalising all preparation before launching the tender. The chart below summarises the stages and steps associated with the detailed preparation phase.
