Public - Private Partnerships

During the course of these years, the goal of attaining the stage of an “Emerging Country, Democratic in its unity and diversity”, on the horizon by 2035 will continue to be pursued.
Cameroon has been implementing these goals since 2010 in its National Development Policy contained in the Strategy Document for Growth and Employment (DSCE) Framework of Government action for the period 2010-2027. The Implementation of this strategy requires a strong mobilization of resources both internally and externally. Internally, the Government has activated public saving schemes, such as the bond loans and the issuance of Treasury bonds. Externally level, it carried out an evaluation of the types of partnerships and developed a Development Partnership Strategy Document (DSPD).

The Government is however aware that the volume of funding required to carry out major public projects is likely to generate over-indebtedness in the medium and long term. Therefore, while optimizing its usual mechanisms of project implementation, the Government intends to strengthen the use of Public – Private Partnerships(PPP).

The partnership contract is a derogatory fashion to the Public Market, which follows a specific regulatory framework under the guidance of the Board of Support for Partnership Contracts Realization (CARPA). As part of the implementation of its projects, the PPP enables the state to give project management of a project to a private partner who can design, finance, realize, operate wholly or partly for the provision of some public services.

This “Projects In Need Of Funding Document” (PNFD) presents, based on available data, projects under development in the administrations and requesting funding or partnerships. This document is therefore a call for proposals for funding or collaboration that could lead to the successful implementation of these projects, in compliance with regulatory frameworks in force, Pubic Procurement and Partnership Agreement.

In As part of the work leading to the development of this Document, comparison exercises in the Public Service (CSP) were conducted. Many projects have indeed been spent in CSP based on available data. On the variety of indicators proposed by the model, some projects had a strong PPP potential. On sheets of these projects, the advantage to realize the PPP is to ment said.

Nevertheless, The fact remains that, in practice,for major projects, MOUs be signed at the inception of said projects, in order to allow formal collaboration between the two parties.
The Ministry of Economy, Planning and Regional Development, in collaboration with the various Ministries and the Technical Support from CARPA, developed a “Memorandum of Understanding” model type attached to this document.

The Public Service Comparator (PSC)(CSP) is a model of comparative economic and financial analysis, which makes it possible to compare projects, financing and public ordering/control tools. It makes it possible to find the combination of project-financing tool with a combination of public procurement that provides the best value to the National Economy. From the input data Available on projects and potential funding, it allows automatic calculation of a series of performance indicators both in Public Market and in Public-Private Partnerships. These performance indicators (NPV/VAN, IRR/TRI, DSCR, etc.) are decision support tools for the The Ministry of Economy, Planning and Regional Development (MINEPAT).
