Project Description

Kosovo Telecom (“KT”) is the incumbent state-owned operator in Kosovo and provides fixed and mobile services. KT is 100 percent state owned, with the state being represented by the Ministry of Economic Development (the ‘Ministry’).  The Company is governed by the Law on Publicly Owned Enterprises of Kosovo, Commercial Law and the Law on Telecommunication.
The Government of Kosovo (the ‘Government’) has decided to renew efforts to privatise KT and, to that end, adopted a decision authorising the privatisation. As part of the privatisation process, the Government has identified a need for a review of the structure, operations and practices of KT ahead of privatisation, along with recommendations for its restructuring while still under state ownership, with the objective of achieving sustainable financial viability by improving the financial, operational, technological, and human resource standing of the company.
As part of these efforts the Ministry has requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the ‘EBRD’) to assist with the preparation of KT for privatisation.  EBRD has agreed to provide support and will help retain external consulting advisors to assist in this respect.  The main beneficiary of the assignment will be KT.
 

Any competitive selections for business opportunities relating to this project will be published on the EBRD's website: Consultancy Procurement Opportunities.

Access to Information Policy (AIP)

The AIP sets out how the EBRD discloses information and consults with its stakeholders so as to promote better awareness and understanding of its strategies, policies and operations following its entry into force on 1 January 2020.

Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)

If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).

IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.

Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out more about IPAM and its mandate; how to submit a Request for review; or contact IPAM  via email ipam@ebrd.com to get guidance and more information on IPAM and how to submit a request.
