Project ID: 00106328/Award ID: 00105006 GCF funded “Accelerating the transformational shift to a low-carbon economy in the Republic of Mauritius” project – Mauritius
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) hereby invites you to submit a Proposal to this Request for Proposal (RFP) for the above-referenced subject.
The Green Climate Fund (GCF), through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), is providing financial support and expertise to assist the Government of Mauritius in achieving their targets set in the Long-Term Energy Strategy and to empower the two entities, namely the MARENA and the URA for the development and regulation of RE respectively in Mauritius. In this context, the project – Accelerating the transformational shift to a low-carbon economy in the Republic of Mauritius - is being implemented at national level and is financed under the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The project is being implemented in 3 components whereby Component 1 is focused on the institutional strengthening of MARENA and URA in order to equip them accordingly for their respective mandates.
At present, the IT system at both MARENA and URA is a basic system with laptops, internet connection, and email and there is no specialist and adapted MIS software nor any appropriate server(s) for centrally managing the information requirements of these institutions. In line with the operationalization and institutional strengthening strategies of both institutions, a robust, up-to-date, fully-fledged and integrated (hardware and software) MIS system is required. It is therefore proposed to design and implement a Management Information System (MIS) at MARENA and URA so that the institutions are fully equipped, using paperless technologies, to meet the corporate objectives.
The main beneficiary of Lot 1 is MARENA. The MARENA office is currently located at the 4th Floor, Celicourt Building, Sir Celicourt Antelme Street, Port Louis. As at June 2018, MARENA consists of 5 staff.
The main beneficiary of Lot 2 is the Utility Regulatory Authority. The URA is currently located at the 8th floor, 1 Cybercity Building, Ebène. As at June 2018, URA consisted of around 10 staff.
