The Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) is seeking a Public Private Partnership that will lead to the prioritization of the city’s sanitation services.
Working with the private sector to provide various services will increase the municipal government’s productivity and ensure optimum sanitation of the city.” Mayor Jefferson Koijee said in a letter to the World Bank, which this paper has seen.
Koijee is seeking technical assistance from the Bank to develop the terms of reference and tender documents for the privatization of sanitation services in Monrovia.
The Mayor’s request is perhaps intended to reduce the risk of conflict of interest and ensure the credibility of the city government’s procurement processes and achieve efficiency and economy.
“Our procurement legal framework requires us to hire the services of private sector actors through open tender processes, which is why MCC needs to first develop a set of requirements and applicable tender document,” the Mayor said in his letter to the World Bank Country Manager Larisa Leshchenko, dated June 13, 2018.
