Consulting Services – Participatory Strategy Development Process for N2 Corridor Summit

The Amathole District Municipality (ADM) and Aspire, registered as the Amathole Economic Development Agency, have collaborated on the review and revision of the Economic Development Strategy (AREDS) for the Amathole District. The AREDS proposes the approach of concentrating economic activities along the region’s primary logistics corridors (the N2, N6, R63 and R72), in order to elevate their significance and potential as investment areas. This project relates to the N2 Corridor, which is that portion of the N2 that traverses the three local municipalities of Great Kei, Mnquma and Mbashe.

The purpose of this tender is to identify and appoint, for a period of four months, a service provider to support the development of a strategy, action plan and stakeholder agreement for the development of the economy of the N2 Corridor. The process will culminate in the N2 Corridor Economic Summit. Tenders are hereby invited for facilitation services and participatory process management to support the implementation of the existing process plan for the participatory development of the N2 Corridor strategy and action plan. The services to be provided include logistics and facilitation services, with contribution to the strategy development.

A compulsory briefing will be held at Aspire offices on the 20th May 2008 at 10h00.
