The project concerns the financing of multi-sectoral investment schemes forming part of the Estonian city of Tartu's 2018-2022 five-year investment programme.
A preliminary list of schemes has been made available to the Bank and the project is expected to comprise small to medium-sized schemes in the fields of municipal infrastructure, education and sport, social and health infrastructure, and cultural heritage. These schemes will benefit the city of Tartu.
Estonia, as an EU member State, has harmonised its environmental legislation in line with the relevant EU Directives 2011/92/EU and2001/42/EC. The Bank's appraisal will focus on the promoter's environmental management capacity to properly apply the Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Directive 2001/42/EC, the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU as amended, as well as the requirements of the Habitats and Birds Directives, where appropriate. Compliance with the EU Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings (EU Directive 2002/91/EC) and its recast (2010/31/EU) will be further examined during the appraisal.
The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Directives 2004/18/EC, or 2014/24/EU where applicable, and/or 2004/17/EC, or 2014/25/EU where applicable, and/or 2014/23/EU where applicable, as well as Directives 89/665/EEC and 92/13/EEC), as interpreted by the Court of Justice of the EU, with the publication of tender notices in the Official Journal of the EU, as and where required.
