    Environmental aspects

    Hospitals are not specifically mentioned in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive 2011/92/EU, though the project may be covered in Annex II of the directive in relation to urban development. The Bank’s services will verify during appraisal the screening decision of the relevant authority and whether an EIA is required.

    Procurement

    The project is being carried out as a public-private partnership (PPP) using a competitive dialogue process. The preferred bidder is expected to be appointed in autumn 2015 and financial close is planned for April 2016. The Bank requires the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the project will be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (Dir. 2004/18/EC or 2004/17/EC and Dir. 2007/66/EC), with publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where appropriate.
