Private operator sought for Hewanorra International in Saint Lucia

0

The Government of Saint Lucia together with the Saint Lucia Sea and Air Ports Authority (SLASPA) is seeking private-sector operators to finance, develop, and maintain Hewanorra International Airport under a long-term concession agreement.

The International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group, has been appointed by SLASPA as lead advisor on the structuring and implementation of the project.

SLASPA has now launched an invitation for prequalification applications from companies or consortia with experience in the airport sector. The prequalification and formation of a shortlist is the initial stage of a bidding process, which will be launched at a later date.

SLASPA intends to select a preferred bidder for the project through an open, transparent and competitive international bidding process, in accordance with Saint Lucian law and international best practices. The authority hopes to sign a concession contract with the winning bidder in 2016.

Anyone wishing to submit a prequalification application should directly contact SLASPA and copy in the IFC coordinators, whose names and email addresses are provided below, to obtain the prequalification document.
