REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL FOR ENGAGEMENT OF A LINKAGE FACILITATOR FOR THE MSMES DEVELOPMENT AND LINKAGES PROJECT

The FOUNDATION FOR PARTNERSHIP INITIATIVES IN THE NIGER DELTA is seeking proposals to engage a Master Service Provider as a linkage facilitator to work with the key actors in the MSME space (BSPs, large buyers, financial institutions, Chambers of Commerce, etc) to implement intervention activities geared towards improving the productivity and growth of MSMEs in the Niger Delta region.

The proposal must address justification for participation, previous and current engagements/experience, organizational affiliation (if any), how skills gained will be used and any other information viewed by an applicant to be useful in helping PIND make a decision on participation.

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES
The Linkage Facilitator will be mandated to achieve the following objectives:

Work with the PIND MSME sector lead to facilitate sustainable linkages between large institutional buyers/SME-friendly institutions and sound growth-oriented enterprises in the Niger Delta. This will entail opening market opportunities in corporate supply chains and large local B2B buyers. It will also entail identifying funding opportunities in SME-friendly financial institutions and identifying and building the competitiveness of sound SMEs to address both the market and funding opportunities.

Strengthen the support market for SMEs in the Niger Delta by mentoring and overseeing the activities of existing Business Services Providers in the Niger Delta. This will also entail developing a commercial training program/mentoring process for on-boarding new entrepreneurial BSPs.

Extend activities of the BSPs to the GMOU (Chevron Global Memorandum of Understanding) communities. Activities in the GMOU communities will be be agreed and funded directly by PIND based on identified opportunities. The Chevron GMOU communities include the following Regional Development Councils (RDCs):
