Growth & Employment (GEM) Project – Credit No. NG- 4882

Training of the NEDEP Business Development Market Place

Request for Expressions of Interest

The Federal Government of Nigeria has received financing from the World Bank towards the implementation of the Growth and Employment (GEM) Project whose objective is to increase firm growth and employment in participating firms in Nigeria. As part of this objective, the Federal Government though the GEM project will engage Business development Services (BDS) providers to work in conjunction with the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN) to support and develop MSMEs across the country. The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment is proposing to establish a business development market place that enhances the standards of MSMEs across the country and expand the geographical and socioeconomic coverage of the existing BDS market. BDS can be a powerful tool for SMEs to grow, increase their productivity and facilitate their access to finance. In addition, the BDS support would assist MSMEs to plan or increase retained income for reinvestment.

This program would raise the standard of service providers by providing them with training and through the establishment of a performance based bond between the BDS providers and the program team. This program will also build a portfolio of clients for the BDS providers. The Ministry through GEM will enable the market to set the stage for a sustainable provision of BDS services across the country through an Integrated Transaction Enabled Web-portal provisionally named ‘BIG’S, as a primary means of interaction between the project and the project beneficiaries firms and institutions, it is expected that over the next 3 years, about 10,000 MSMEs (called “Awardees”) will be supported by about 30 business development services firms (called “BD partners”) – between three to seven BD partners in the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria. This program will largely subsidize the costs of the services provided by the BDS providers. Some BD Partners are expected to be good enough to start right away working with the SMEs (hereafter called ‘group A’) while some may be just below the cutoff (hereafter called ‘group B’). It is on the basis of the above that the GEM Project seeks to engage the services of reputable firms to provide training for National Enterprise Development Programme (NEDEP) Business Development Market Place

Objective of the assignment:

The objective of this assignment is to support the GEM team in building the capacity of the BDS providers that could potentially be further involved in the BD Market place, which will include: (i) Verifying the status and categorization of the BDS providers (ii) Training the BDS providers to a common minimum required level of expertise and knowledge (iii) Support initial target MSME awareness and motivational workshops by the BDS providers (iv) During the BDS training develop a performance reward contract in consultation with the BDS providers

The Firm will also verify that each BDS provider falls into the category that was assigned to (e.g. group A or B). This assessment could be done using a case study developed by the firm.

Task 2 – Development of two curricula for BDS providers

The firm will develop two different curricula: (i) a ‘Light’ training for BDS providers in group A, and (ii) an ‘Upgrading’ training for BDS providers in group B on BDS systems, processes, management etc. Both training will include a session about screening ‘high-potential’ MSMEs and assessing the needs of MSMEs. The ‘Upgrading’ training is likely to last longer and contain more sessions than the ‘Light’ training.

Task 3 – Training of the BDS providers

The assignment of the firm will include: i) Deliver light training curriculum to group A BDS, ii) Deliver upgrading  training curriculum to group B BDS, iii) Design and support. BDS to deliver group a MSME awareness and motivational workshop.

Task 4 – Performance-based bond

The firm will provide the PIU with a template of a bond to be used between the GEM project and the selected BDS providers that will participate to the program. This bond will define criteria and procedures for disbursement of performance reward payments to BDS. The bond will be developed following consultation with BDS providers during training, to establish a system that is considered fair and achievable by BDS in different geographic areas and economic context around Nigeria.

In line with this commitment, the Government has sought the World Bank’s partnership to help Nigeria support Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) operating in different high potential sectors throughout the country. This support is being implemented under the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment (FMITI) and operationalized in the Growth and Employment (GEM) Project.

The project focuses on manufacturing and service sectors, specifically supporting ICT, entertainment tourism and hospitality, light manufacturing and construction. Project support addresses cross cutting sector issues, assistance to specific clusters, and more direct support to firms channeled through a platform – called the Business Innovation and Growth (BIG) Platform – providing various trainings, technical assistance and grant schemes.

This program would raise the standard of service providers by providing them with training and through the establishment of a performance based contrasting between BDS providers and the GEM program team. This program will also build a portfolio of clients for the BDS providers. The GEM will enable the market to set the stage for a sustainable provision of BDS services across the country. The project team launched a platform “Business Development Market Place” (http://www.bdmpnigeria.org/) for MSMEs register to the program. Eventually this website will be linked to the Big’s Portal.

It is expected that over the next 3 years, about 10,000 MSMEs (called “Awardees”) will be supported by about 36 business development services firms (called “BD partners”) between three to seven BD partners in the six, geopolitical zones of Nigeria.

Request for Expression of Interest (EOI) for the Engagement of Technical Auditor for System Operation (SO) and Market Operation (MO) Divisions of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN)

(1.0) Introduction

The power sector in Nigeria is based on a “Market Model” where the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has been assigned the monopoly of three activities: transmission services, system operation and market operation. Market Rules and Grid Code have been developed, taking into account the implementation of the market in phases.

The Electric Power Sector Reform (EPSR) Act, 2005, defines System Operation (SO) as a separate activity that requires a licence but it does not specify a Market Operation (MO) license. The system operation license includes activities of SO and MO. The Market Rules establishes the responsibilities, procedures, standards and criteria that should be followed by the System Operator/Market Operator, as well as its relationship with the other Market Participants.

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) which is established by the EPSR, Act, 2005 is mandated amongst other things, to create, promote and preserve efficient electricity industry and market structures, as well as ensure that regulation is fair and balanced for licensees, consumers, investors and other stakeholders.

In its bid to execute its mandate, the Commission has the responsibility of verifying the licensees’ compliance with licence conditions, the Market Rules and the Grid Code. As part of this responsibility, and pursuant to Rule 13.1 of the Market Rules, the Commission is desirous of engaging the services of a technical auditor for the assignment.

However, the work does include assessment of procedures to exchange information relevant to scheduling of generation, imports, exports, system security, Ancillary Services, market administration including payments and their adequacy with the responsibilities assigned to the System Operator / Market Operator.

The work also involves identifying the compatibility or possible differences between the current practices and the conditions, principles and procedures established in the Grid Code.
