South Africa: specialists sought for baseload IPP procurement
The Department of Energy says it will release procurement documentation for the key baseload independent power producer (IPP) procurement programme “towards the end of 2013 and first two quarters of 2014”, leaving little time for the transaction advisers currently being recruited to design and implement the process.
