  1. 1. A project funded by the European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office PROJECT PREPARATION FACILITY George Chabrzyk September 30 / BELGRADE Project funded by The European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  2. 2. To consolidate the existing procedures for infrastructure development in Serbia and to use this as the basis for developing a standard methodology for the selection of strategically relevant projects. To ensure that his methodology is generally applicable to all funding sources and specifically that it is relevant for IPA 2014-20 To develop a methodology which addresses the needs of both central and local governments. Project funded by The European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  3. 3.  Relevance of the project for implementing national sector strategies  Adequacy of the institutional set-up and institutional capacity for project implementation  Project Readiness/ Maturity for implementation Project funded by The European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  4. 4. 1. Collect existing infrastructure project pipelines (from project promoters, SLAP, line ministry databases, sector strategies) 2. Identify broad list of projects by completion of Project Identification Forms (PIFs) & registration on ISDACON database 3. Strategic Relevance Assessment (filtering step) 4. Short list of strategically relevant projects 5.      Gap Assessment Analysis: Project scope (objectives, investment type, options identification) Technical elements (spatial planning & technical documentation) Institutional readiness (institutional framework & capacity) Financial /Economic elements (expenditure coverage /affordability) Environmental /Social elements (EIA, socio /environmental impacts 2. Project identification form (PIF) 3. Strategic Relevance Assessment criteria (from PIF) 5. Gap Assessment Questionnaire /Gap Assessment Report Questionnaire + Project Documentation provide data for step 5 6. Final list of prioritized projects (to be included in ISDACON) Project preparation according to Serbian legal requirements & EU procedures Project funded by The European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  5. 5. Collect relevant infrastructure project pipelines for each sector /subsector (a ‘pipeline’ is a group of projects under preparation, usually at a mix of development stages)  Main sources are: Sector Strategy Action /Master Plans; Line ministry databases; SLAP database (municipality infrastructure) for projects in environment, business development & (partially) energy Lists of projects addressing strategic priorities established & maintained by the responsible sector ministries Collection of potential projects is carried out on a continual basis Project funded by The European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  6. 6. Project funded by The European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  7. 7.  SLAP (projects in solid waste, waste water, business development)  Strategy and Policy of Industrial Development (2011-20)  Spatial Plan of the Republic of Serbia (to 2020)  Tourism Strategy  National Sustainable Development Strategy (2008-17)  National Programme for Environmental Protection (2010-19)  National Waste Management Strategy (2010-19)  Sewerage and wastewater strategic Master plan for the West Morava river basin  Energy Development Strategy (2005-15)  Energy Community Treaty  Development plan of PE Transnafta (2010-14)  National Renewable Energy Action Plan (2013-20)  First National Energy Efficiency Plan (2010-12)  Biomass Action Plan (2010-12)  National ten year network development plan (2013-22)  Strategy of Railways, Road, Inland Waterways, Air and Intermodal Transport Development (2008-15)  General Master Plan for Transport (2010-27) Project funded by The European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  8. 8. Projects collected will have had variable amounts of preparatory work carried out & will exist in various formats (the national pipeline ranges from projects at the ‘Concept Note’ stage to those with JASPERS reviewed Feasibility Studies and prepared procurement documentation) In order to ensure that information collected by different ministries is coherent, consistent & sufficient for the assessment of strategic relevance (step 3), standard Project Identification Forms (PIFs) have been developed for each sector/ sub-sector. PIF’s provide information on: (i) sector institutional set-up & policy ownership; (ii) consistency with national strategic frameworks & EU policies/ IPA priorities; (iii) strategic relevance criteria (pre-defined) PIFs completed by project proponents & entered in the ISDACON database by the responsible ministries creating a ‘broad list’ of projects per sector /sub-sector Identified projects = projects in the broad lists i.e. in PIF format registered on ISDACON Project funded by The European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  9. 9.  Strategic relevance = extent to which a project contributes to achieving sector policy objectives /targets  PIFs vary from sector to sector since the strategic relevance criteria (SRC) reflect sector-specific objectives  For sectors where there is no adopted national strategy, SRC are based on the relevant EU acquis (e.g. Urban Waste Water Directive)  Information provided in PIFs is used to assess the strategic relevance of projects in the sector broad lists. Project funded by The European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  10. 10. 1. 2. 3. 4. 1. 2. 3. Sustainable energy development Enhanced competition Social impact (including economic and employment impacts) 1. 2. 3.

Export market and private sector demand Outputs and financial sustainability Employment generation Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  11. 11.  Strategic relevance assessment is based on a weighted scoring system developed for the SRC in each sector /sub-sector  On the basis of this assessment short lists of the most strategically relevant projects are drawn up for each sector /sub-sector  Agreed short lists are entered into ISDACON  Short lists should be reviewed on a regular basis (say annually) since SRC are not fixed and will change as strategies are implemented and updated  Step 3 is regarded as a ‘filtering’ step since it is the basis on which broad lists are reduced to short lists Project funded by The European Union Government of the Republic of Serbia European Integration Office
  12. 12.  Gap assessment is the process of assessing the quality & completeness of the project documentation (i.e. An assessment of maturity based on the ‘gap’ between existing documentation & requirements under Serbian law & for international assistance financing  Proponents of Shortlisted Projects provide further detailed information by means of specific ‘Gap Assessment Questionnaires’ (per sector /subsector).  GAQs address: Project Identification; Technical Maturity; Institutional Readiness; Financial /Economic Sustainability and Social & Environmental Impacts  Results of Gap Assessment Analysis are presented in ‘Gap Assessment Reports’ (including recommendations for future actions)  Final lists of prioritised projects are produced on the results of Gap Assessment results & provide the basis of project selection & the planning of further preparation activities.
