Hill is providing technical assistance to strengthen the local capacity for the overall planning, preparation, and implementation of infrastructure projects in Albania. This assignment is part of the IPA 2015 Action Program for Albania.

The overall objective of the program is to strengthen the capacity and accountability of the State’s administration of the design and implementation of sector programs and major infrastructure projects. This will improve connectivity within the country and the Western Balkan Region in preparation for EU membership.

The team’s main purpose is to provide the necessary support to the National Investment Committee Secretariat, the Department of Development and Good Governance, all line Ministries, and also regional institutions, agencies, and municipalities responsible for infrastructure projects in key sectors such as Transport, Energy, Environment, Social Infrastructure, and Business Infrastructure.

Specifically, the scope includes assisting the State administration to maintain a standard investment prioritization methodology, including the process of selection, prioritization, assessment of viability and sustainability and development of infrastructure projects. This includes the National Single Project Pipeline (NSPP) and Sector Single Project Pipelines (SSPP). Furthermore, the program will enhance the State’s capacity and training staff across Ministries and Agencies involved in feasibility assessments, planning, design, procurement, implementation, and monitoring of infrastructure projects.
