Monday, November 26, 2018

From the Fomilenio II statement:

FOMILENIO II and Deloitte Consulting S.L.U. signed the order to start the consultancy to structure the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) lighting and video surveillance project. This PPP consists of financing, installing, operating and maintaining lighting, poles, underground cabling, video surveillance cameras and monitoring rooms for selected road sections that conform an approximate length of 140 kilometers.

The project will be developed in 24 municipalities of San Salvador, La Paz, La Libertad, with an average daily vehicular traffic of 23,750 vehicles; this is expected to contribute to improving road safety in that infrastructure.

As part of the consultancy, Deloitte Consulting S.L.U will provide support to the Ministry of Public Works, Transport, Housing and Urban Development (MOPTVDU) in structuring, placing on the market and support during the tender process of the project.

This project is part of the portfolio of partners in which FOMILENIO II supports the Government of El Salvador.

A public-private partnership is a contract between a public entity and a private one, in which the private party assumes substantial financial, technical or operational risks in the design, financing, construction and/or operation of a public good or service. This is in accordance with certain standards for a limited period, in exchange for compensation.

Private participation under a PPP does not remove the public entity's ownership, authority or sovereignty over the stipulated good or service.

For governments, PPPs are a tool that provides the opportunity to supply the country with works and services necessary for its development, while directing their resources to social priorities. In this way, they contribute to economic growth and the generation of jobs, as well as to the alleviation of state finances.

Public-Private Partnerships Not Being Leveraged

December 2017

In the four years that the law of associations between the State and private companies in El Salvador has been in effect, not a single infrastructure project has been able to materialize using this business scheme.

Although there are at least seven infrastructure projects that were initially proposed as being those with the highest priority and ideals to be developed under the public-private partnership scheme and with funding from Fomilenio II, none of them has managed to materialize.
