Contract awarded for Tunisian schools programme
A consortium led by Louis Berger is to provide technical assistance on a €213m (£182m) school modernisation programme in Tunisia.
The consortium, which also includes GOPA and SCET Tunisia, was selected by the Ministry of Education for the Modernisation des Établissements Scolaires (MES) scheme. The European Investment Bank (EIB) is co-financing the three-year nationwide initiative, which will lead to nearly 60 new schools and the renovation of 310 educational facilities.
Education is a strategic sector for the Tunisian government, with the Ministry of Education having one of the largest stakes in the national budget. The current educational facilities modernisation initiative will increase elementary school capacity by 200,000 students. Across the country, about 238,000 high school students will benefit from the programme.
The joint venture will support the ministry’s project execution team during the procurement process by preparing architectural design and engineering works tender dossiers. The team will manage a complex procurement process to be organised in more than 25 of the Ministry of Education’s regional offices.
The consortium will prepare the design, manage and supervise the works contracts and provide financial management services, as well as supporting the ministry’s team in complying with EIB’s quality assurance, procurement, environmental and social requirements.
